Posted on 21. Apr, 2011 by in Volkswagen Canada

The 21st Century Beetle was denounced on Monday, and in no time during all, people were purgation about a confidant and energetic makeover. To be frank, all this regard has us embarressed (and we suspicion it was only a sporty red paint job). What are they saying? We’re blissful we asked.
David Shepardson of The Detroit News writes, “The association hopes to recover a lurch of a iconic Beetle code that stays one of a best famous automobile brands by appealing to some-more men—as a strange chronicle did” by “aiming to strew a ‘chick car’ label.” Shepardson goes on to quote VW pattern code arch Klaus Bischoff, who says, “The Beetle is now characterized by a clean, poised and widespread sportiness,” adding that VW “wanted a car to be some-more sporty, energetic and masculine.” We’d contend he some-more than achieved that. Kudos, Klaus!
Phil Patton of The New York Times describes a 2012 Beetle as “a Bug with a violent Y chromosome,” adding that a vehicle’s interior pattern group “provided a diagnosis that somewhat dialed behind a lovable factor, with inexhaustible swatches of extraneous color, gracefully consistent a interior and exterior.” Patton also points out that a large partial of a car’s manly interest lies in a 10-spoke wheels (available in adult sizes from 17 to 19 inches). He adds, “Perhaps many demonstrative of a Beetle’s celebrity shift, a quarrel of analog orchestration rises from a lurch only inches from where a ended flower vase was positioned.” In a difference of Mr. Bischoff: “More power, reduction flower.”
Matt Peckham of Time Techland focused some-more on a car’s boast-worthy fuel efficiency, writing, “It’s wider, lower, and longer, and Volkswagen says it’ll do adult to 40 [miles per gallon] on a highway or 29 in a city: Meet a new 2012 Beetle, a sleek, somewhat flatter, still curvy head-turner Volkswagen AG calls a ‘most fuel-efficient Beetle ever.’” Peckham also records a new engine options: “You’ll be means to collect from a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder TDI Clean Diesel (the 40 highway/29 city mpg version), 2.0L TSI turbocharged gasoline, or 2.5L 5-cylinder gasoline engines, and we can go possibly 5-speed primer or 6-speed automatic.”
