I always wanted to own a Volkswagen Beetle

By Austin on 13 October 2011

I always wanted to own a Volkswagen Beetle and when it entered the India market, I took it for a test drive which turns out to be quite surprising. Although, Beetle has a compact body, but it is spacious enough for two people on the inside. Passenger safety has not been overlooked while building this compact car. Some these features are Anti-lock Braking system (ABS), Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), 4 impact protective airbags and door opening reflectors that blinks if the doors are open.

Unlike the old Beetle, the engine is located in the front of the car and powered with 1984 cc 2 litre petrol engine that offers a maximum power of 116 bhp at 5400 rpm and maximum torque generation of 172 nm at 3200 rpm. When I talk about the exterior styling of Beetle, naturally the design of the original Beetle comes to mind. Body coloured bumpers, suave headlights, third brake lights and elegant tail-lamps are some of the exterior features.

On the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised with the efficiently spaced interior complimented with simple comfort oriented features. Some of these features are blue illuminated instrument cluster, stereo system with MP3/CD player and radio along with AUX-in function to plug in external equipment, front seat cup holders and dash mounted clock and temperature display.
