All-New Beetle Modern Style Debuts at New York Auto Show

The all-new 2012 Beetle debuted at the New York Auto Show and was instantly recognizable as the new and modern Volkswagen Beetle with huge changes from the first-generation car. At the heart of this controversial new design is the lowered roofline. Unlike the 2010 Volkswagen New Beetle, the 2012 Beetle doesn’t have a perfectly arched roofline.

Instead of the straight cut line for the doors on the older New Beetle, the new Beetle’s doors have curved edges. The taillight design eschews the circular units on the outgoing Volkswagen for larger lights that meet the edge of the trunk opening. For the interior, the biggest change – no flower holder.

Viewed as refreshing and cool, the new 2012 Beetle will be available in showrooms this fall.
