Better buying a Golf. Awful car and its front engined and front wheel drive! A Bettle is supposed to be Air-cooled and rear wheel drive.

Yup. I have to admit, from the side it looks much better than the last one.

It looks more like the original Hitler-version. I quite like it (the car, not Hitler).

The rear lights look like they were taken off of the VW fox (?).

The front looks like it should have its face painted like a clown with orange hair sticking out from the windows & a hot on the roof

I prefer this to the other retro return Beetle but not by much. It's retro and as such is not cool at all.

They've done the same as the Fiat 500 and the Mini, launched a retro concept that everybody warmed to and then the face-lift models come along, all totally devoid of styling or character.

Saw one today. It struck me that it can from the rear look like a Porsche cayman.. A fat one.

I find the front bonnet curve skewed, the whole car seems to badly proportioned.
