Volkswagen Beetle: The Beetle Gets Ahead of Itself

The VW Beetle is simply an icon in the automotive history. What seemed to have been put to an end with the ultimate running down of the production in 2003 is just an illusion. The original Beetle lives on: more than 40000 cars are still registered in Germany. And since last year, what you might call the Beetle 2.0 is on the market. And it lives up to its name and goes with the time: twice as fast, it consumes only half of the fuel. Even the entry-level engine, the 1.2 TSI with 105 HP, is four times as efficient as the Beetle prototype and goes as fast as 180 km/h. New in the programme is a 1.4 TSI with 160 HP. But the 105 HP strong 1.6 TDI is undoubtedly the most economic version which contents itself with 4.5 litres/100 km. The Beetle crew can nowadays get as far as 1200 km with one tankful. Thus, one can go on a holiday from Frankfurt to Lissabon with one refuelling stop only.
