The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen Beetle
For:Looks, handling, good range of engines, much improved over the last one
Against:It's less practical than a Golf - as if you care a jot about that
What is it?
This car is a vast improvement on its predecessor. Basing it on the current Golf platform is a good start. It’s not as practical as a regular hatch, but much more fun to own and be seen in.
