New Beetle on the way

Pete Mait

How time flies. The new Beetle has been around since 1998. In 2012, some fourteen years after its introduction, Volkswagen will build a mark two version of the modern Beetle. Rumour has it that this new Beetle has grown just a little. Rear, back seat and boot will afford more room. Furthermore, it will be marketed at a competitive price, which should help VW to return to its roots, building cars which almost everyone can afford.
