“What the Press Say”
The VW Beetle (should that be New Beetle? New New Beetle?) was facelifted in late 2016, after emerging for its second crack at reinventing VW’s curvy rear-engined icon in 2011. Basically, the big news concerns the introduction of racier R-line trim.
A diesel addition has been recently introduced to the Beetle range with the familiar 2.0-litre TDI engine, which is available in two outputs – 108bhp and 148bhp. When we tested it with the optional DSG twin-clutch transmission (£1595), we found the diesel engine to be as sprightly and free-revving as in other installations.
R-Line Beetles get one engine only – a 2-litre, four-cylinder turbodiesel under the ubiquitous TDI banner. It makes 148bhp in this iteration (at 3500rpm), with a solid 251lb ft of torque on tap from 1750rpm.
As this is a diesel, we’ll mention economy: VW claims 61.4mpg combined of the 2.0 TDI, a figure that doesn’t actually seem unattainable given the ease with which figures in the 50s show on the Beetle’s electronic display.
From an exterior design standpoint the new Beetle does impress, and from the first glance you’re aware that more time and thought has gone into perfecting its appearance. Step inside and you’re confronted by an unusually high dashboard that has been styled to replicate that of the original Beetle
Practicality is a pleasant surprise, too. Okay, it’s not a Golf estate, but the large front doors mean access to the rear seats is easier than a Scirocco or three-door Golf, the boot’s a handy 310 litres.
