Default "new" New Beetle (facelift)

Volkswagen unveils "new" New Beetle
Auburn Hills, Michigan - Volkswagen of America unveiled the 2006 "new" New Beetle and New Beetle convertible at its U.S. headquarters. The upcoming design maintains the Beetle's core design but incorporates bolder, slightly sharper body lines, tailored bumpers, more oval headlight treatment and new taillight designs. The interior receives a new instrument cluster, with chrome applications on the instruments and air vents.

The 2006 New Beetle will be launched in September 2005 and will come standard with a more powerful new 150 hp, 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine, which replaces the 115 hp, 2.0-litre four-cylinder. Traction control and electronic stabilization program will be standard equipment.

well, it looks better. as feminine as it is and not really to my tastes, the beetle hasn't aged too much in the last 7 years or so

the back reminds me of a hippo

why they didn' put the blinker in the headlight
instead of making this ugly orange stripe in the bumper?
amazing how so few mods can make a car look modern again
i still like it

Well said...

VW has made a good move to put its I5 in the new Beetle, it fits well with this car more than it does on the new Jetta

Doesn't look too bad. I still wouldn't really want to be caught in a non-turbo, even then I wouldn't really want to be in it. But the interior looks great.
