Volkswagen Beetle review

Overview

After a long wait, Volkswagen Beetle is back in the news and this time, the company might surprise car enthusiasts with the changes it brings with this model. As per reports doing rounds over internet, this stunning car is most likely to enter the Indian car market by this year end. Already several units of this model have been imported in the country and this is an indication that it may be launched very soon. Most probably, it will be introduced through the completely built unit (CBU) channel. When launched, it may compete with MINI Cooper, Fiat Abarth 595 Competizione and a few others in this segment. This car might come with a few enhancements in terms of features yet, it sticks to the same classy styling that is reminiscent to the original one. In comparison to the outgoing version, it may be more sportier and muscular. It is said that the car's length is slightly increased, and it will also be lower as well as wider in terms of dimensions. No other details about its exteriors are out now, and we can expect it to carry standard elements. Some of these include a wide air intake section at front surrounded by a couple of fog lamps and the trendy headlight cluster, which is for sure an attraction in its front facade. What's going to dominate its side profile are the flared up wheel arches and a modish set of alloy wheels with tubeless radial tyres.

Looking at its pictures, it can be easily said that the rear end looks sporty and distinctive compared to other vehicles in this segment. There is a sloping roof line and a spoiler is also integrated. As of now, there is no information about what all attributes it may include inside the cabin. But in terms of internal space, we can certainly expect it to be better than before considering the change in its dimensions. The automaker may equip it with high grade materials along with comfortable seats. It may have roomy boot space which makes it ideal for storing a lot of stuff. A smooth dashboard and high end equipments are definitely anticipated. For entertainment, there might be a sophisticated audio unit that supports Bluetooth Connectivity and navigation system as well. Besides these, a few utility based and storage spaces might also be on the offer. When it comes to safety, it may be incorporated with vital aspects like anti-lock braking system, electronic stabilization program, front seat belts with pre-tensioners, child safety locks, central locking system and many more. On the other hand, this upcoming car may be powered by a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine that is currently doing duty in the Jetta sedan. It is likely to be more fuel efficient and generates nearly 120bhp power in combination with 200Nm torque. According to the sources, it will be introduced without diesel engine option and one can expect for it only in coming days.

Exteriors

The bug shape of this hatchback is what makes it unique compared to various other models running in the market today. It has a charisma which has been enhanced over the years with its evolving generations. The curves, bulging wheel arches and “happy face” like front design can make the heads turn at the very first glance itself. It has a retro styling and despite a few changes, it stays true to its original self. This latest version is said to be more muscular and angular compared to its predecessor. Its front facade will have a wide windscreen fitted with intermittent wipers, while the prominent company's insignia is embossed at the tip of its bonnet. The design of bumper and headlight cluster just go well with its overall structure. On the sides, the outside mirrors may have side turn blinkers integrated to it, whereas the pronounced wheel arches might get a stylish set of alloy wheels. Meanwhile, its rear end seems to be more interesting and attractive. It looks more curvy this time, which will only add to its appearance.

These may be integrated with headrests and offer great thigh and back support too. The driver seat may be height adjustable and this makes sure that the driver is always in a comfortable position and has the best view of the road.

Also, it will have an instrument panel that further aids the driver in giving updates of the vehicle. Besides these, many other features can be anticipated like cabin lights, air vents, high quality speakers, low fuel warning and so on.

Interior Measurements:

This small car is expected to have a roomy internal section. The legroom seems to be quite sufficient, but the space in the rear may not be that good. Even the head room may become problematic especially for tall passengers. Coming to the boot space, it might be good enough to place ample luggage.
