I think everyone is a fan of the classic VW Beetle and many are perhaps are unpleased when it was redesigned looking like half a sphere with wheels. The interior was spacious but it always felt that the front and rear of the car are identical and to me that wasn’t really a good thing.

Anyway, VW recreated the Beetle from scratch and it seems they’re aiming for the MINI Cooper trend where it is all about style and customization. I don’t think this car competes with MINI in any way but I guess this car does look promising, redesigning it was a much needed move.
