I like my "Real" Beetle, Papa Smurph, so I wanted to see if the new one would work as my daily car. Well, it does. I like it and my kids like it. (My husband says he's embarassed to be seen driving it.....) It has peppy performance, handles well, and gets good gas mileage. It can also carry a week's worth of groceries, something Papa could never do!
Inline 4 cylinder/5-speed manual transaxle (The engine and transaxle are at the wrong end of the car!)
0-60 - Pretty quick
1/4 mile - Faster than my '69 Beetle!
Top Speed - Faster than I want to go!
Air Conditioning, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Power Sunroof, AM/FM/CD (with a 6-disk CD changer in the trunk), Leather Upholstery, Aluminum Wheels
Nothing - I like my car just the way it is.
