Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (DSG) Review
Oh Hello Sunshine!

Body panels are sculpted carefully, ensuring that the essence of the original car is truly kept in-mind

Oh hello sunshine! Other than the Golf, the Beetle is instantly recognisable as a car built by the Volkswagen brand.

Compact, cheeky and lots of fun, we simply wanted a go at it, and loved every moment…

Exterior


Joining its more ‘conventional’ sibling, the three-part “K-fold” roof was designed deliberately as a throwback to the original Beetle, leaving plenty of roof material visible when the roof is folded down. Dropping the roof takes just 9.5 seconds, and is able to close up at speeds of up to 50km/h, taking just 11 seconds to do so.

Body panels are sculpted carefully, ensuring that the essence of the original car is truly kept in-mind. The very pretty headlamps are truly a thing to smile about. The shy looking lights are Bi-Xenon units, with daytime running LEDs which surround the outer edges of the assembly.

In-between the flared out wheel arches, the door panels, like the original car are almost flat. The door handles, while they do suit the car’s design, come from the same parts bin as the MK5 Golf and B5 Passat.

At the rear, a nifty wing, mounted at the top of the boot lid completes the look.
