Looks great. Hopefully the more aggressive look will make the move away from being seen as a girly car.

200bhp from a 2lt TSI engine is a bit disappointing when you think 5 or 6 years ago they were getting 180bhp from a 1.4TSI.

GTI engine? Disappointing? The 1.4 TSI (170bhp) isn't a patch on a 2.0 TFSI, or even a 2.0 TDI for that matter.

It had me thinking about the original beetles engines, smaller and more about A to B than big power figures. Its a shame their not making an engine smaller than a 2lt. Doesnt the 1.4TSI make 178bhp? I rounded it to 180. Is this beetle getting a TFSI or TSI?

Either way, Id drive one. Hopefully they wont change the styling too much when it comes to getting built.

Love it! If only the cash were in hand I'd put my name down on the order book. I worked a lot on the first 'new' beetle - driving mules all over North America - makes me tired just to think of it again - hehehe

BTW - I don't see PT Cruiser in this design anywhere........but thats me...

I wonder if those gauges would fit a mk5 dash?

Looks well. A bit of a "coupe" look about it (lower roof).
