2010 Volkswagen Beetle
2010 Volkswagen Beetle
Ever since the Beetle has been brought back from its roots in the early 60's baby boomers and young drivers alike have been flocking to this uniquely designed VW. It was in 1998 when the Beetle was reintroduced to the VW line up and since it has not changed much on the outside, because its half circle shape is one thing that gives it character. There are both coupe and convertible options to the standard Beetle form and the buyer can choose from a six speed automatic or a five speed manual transmission. Besides these options, there are not a lot of choices to be made when choosing a new Beetle besides its color.

The Beatle focuses on bringing a lot of fun and value to the driving experience and does an excellent job at both. The 2010 Beetle starts under $20,000 and offers up to 28 mpg on the highway which make it an affordable and very fuel efficient entry level sedan alternate. The interior of the Beetle offers much more room than expected and can comfortably seat up to 4 passengers.
2012 Volkswagen Beetle Right Side
With the release of the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle coming shortly, we've been seeing lots of talk about the model it replaces, the New Beetle. We've wondered aloud if the new model will continue the "cuteness" of the previous one, if it'll be sportier, if it'll attract more male buyers. But television personality Jay Leno isn't really concerned with comparing the 2012 Beetle to the New Beetle.

Volkswagen today announced the launch of an online pre-order program with the launch of a special edition 2012 Beetle. Volkswagen’s pre-order program, cleverly named “Vehicle Pre-Order Program,” will be launched using Amazon’s e-commerce system and is designed to allow Volkswagen customers to reserve limited-edition models. To kick things off, Volkswagen also announced the 2012 Black Turbo Launch Edition Beetle, which will only be available through the Vehicle Pre-Order Program.

2012 Volkswagen New Beetle Sketch
As of Super Bowl XLV this past weekend, we are one step closer to getting an official look at the 2012 Volkswagen New Beetle. During the big game, VW showed a fanciful commercial following a pin-striped black beetle – of the insect kind – racing through the woods; the ad culminated with a profile shot of the bug tracing an outline of the newest New Beetle.
