Volkswagen Beetle 1.4TSi – On Test

In a 65-year production run from 1938 to 2003, over 21 million Volkswagen Beetles were built. Love it or hate it, it is a bona fide motoring icon.

The Golf-based New Beetle of 1998 isn’t an icon, but it was still hugely popular. So much so that in 2012 VW launched this, the ‘new-new’ Beetle, or Beetle Mk.3, if you will.

Volkswagen has tried to reposition the new interpretation on the Beetle theme, moving it away from being the fashion-led hatchback its predecessor was, marketing it more as a sporty coupe.

Is the latest Beetle a credible coupe, or does it have more style than substance?
