Photos of the Volkswagen Beetle

Iconic Beetle face, with a couple more inches between the eyes.

Windshield now farther back and more upright, so more like the classic Beetle.

Small windows with the top up.

The Fiat's top is down in this photo. Can you tell?

Clean, classic lines. Though the fenders remain symmetrical, you can tell which end is the front.

Less of a cartoon than before. Remains attractive with the top up.

The top stacks more compactly than before, but still cuts into rearward visibility.

Large blind spots with the top up. Learn to properly adjust and use those mirrors!

Silver looks best at night.

Body-color trim on the instrument panel face and upper doors a welcome relief.

Fiat's interior much warmer than the VW's, especially with brown and cream leather.

Most controls are easy to operate. Small tach.

We've got boost!

Volkswagen Beetle Photos: VW Beetle Convertible front seats

Wide, flat, and firm. MINI and Fiat offer more form-fitting seats.

There's more leg room back here than there appears to be in the photo. But not much more.

Not much will fit back here even if the boot for the soft top is removed.

Great fuel economy, good power in typical driving.
