2013 Volkswagen Beetle Summary

The 2013 Beetle wins in almost every area. It's smooth, quiet, comfortable, economical, and fast enough to flow with traffic. Instrumentation and controls are beautifully simple. Rear legroom is tight, but access is easy. The hatchback and fold-down rear seats create huge cargo space, and the convertible offers open-air fun for four. For performance there's the Beetle Turbo, and for fuel mileage the diesel-powered Beetle TDI. The Beetle offers something for everyone who likes its retro-cool styling.

NewCarTestDrive.com correspondent Sam Moses reported from the Pacific Northwest on the Beetle, with Kirk Bell reporting from Chicago on the Beetle convertible.
