    2000 Volkswagen Beetle

    Volkswagen’s New Beetle isn’t so new as it was last year, but it still attracts attention and draws comments. It is cute. It’s also fun to drive. A taut suspension provides the driver with excellent control on mountain roads and makes it supremely stable at high speeds. Government (NHTSA) crash testing indicates the Beetle is quite safe – something that couldn’t be said of the old Beetle familiar to us all.

    Adding to the Beetlemania is a new 1.8T model that includes a much more powerful engine. The 150-horsepower turbocharged engine allows der Beetle to squirt out of corners like a Golf GTI; in other words, der Beetle is quick.

    Model Lineup

    Five models are available: GL ($15,900); GLS 2.0L ($16,850); GLS TDI (17,900); GLS 1.8T ($19,000); GLX ($21,075).

    GL and GLS are powered by Volkswagen’s 115-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. GLS TDI uses a 90-horsepower 1.9-liter turbocharged diesel engine. The 1.8T comes with a 150-horsepower turbocharged 1.8-liter engine. The 1.8T is available in two trim lines: the GLS 1.8T and the fully loaded GLX.

    Walkaround

    When it arrived in 1998, the New Beetle rekindled the magic of its legendary namesake and became a ray of sunshine in an all-too-serious car market. The Volkswagen Beetle is among the top 10 best-selling nameplates of all time, ranking right up there with the Ford Model T in terms of number sold. The design of Volkswagen’s New Beetle captures the essence of the original Bug.

    But Volkswagen calls this car the “New” Beetle to emphasize that it actually has little in common with the old one. The New Beetle mounts a water-cooled engine up front that powers the front wheels. The original Beetle used an air-cooled engine mounted in back that powered the rear wheels. The New Beetle is thoroughly modern. It is built on the same basic platform as the Volkswagen Golf. It’s also far safer than the old Bug. Well-engineered crumple zones and other features enhance crash protection. Dual front and side airbags are standard. Antilock brakes are standard. A rigid chassis results in a smooth, controlled ride with little noise, vibration or harshness.

    Though it harks to the original design, the shape of the New Beetle is thoroughly modern. Chrome bumpers have been replaced with integrated, color-keyed bumpers. Quality is also far batter than the old Bug. Gaps between doors, fenders and other body panels are some of the tightest we’ve seen.

    The original Beetle was an economy car and looked it. The New Beetle is still a good value, but visually it tells a different story. It looks up-market and up-tempo. It comes in a sophisticated palette of colors. Cyber Green, for example, is a pearlescent metallic finish that seems to change colors in different lighting conditions. Big 16-inch tires lend a sporty look, and optional six-spoke aluminum wheels denote technical sophistication.

    Interior Features

    Beetle’s unique exterior styling is complemented by a unique interior design. A myriad of materials is used to give the Beetle a high-tech look. The upper dash uses coarse, hard materials accented by smoother, softer surfaces elsewhere. Curved, dimpled door handles look ultra-modern. Upper door panels use a matte version of the car’s exterior paint. The steering wheel features brushed aluminum spokes and carbon-fiber-looking handgrips. A small vase keeps a small flower looking fresh or holds a plastic daisy.

    A big speedometer and tiny tachometer are in a circular gauge panel that glows indigo at night. This complements red lighting used for stereo and heating/air conditioning controls to minimize glare at night. It also looks neat. Sleek radio and heater controls are within easy reach and, but can be difficult to decipher and awkward to operate at speed.

    We liked the techno look and found the interior materials to be quite acceptable in quality. It takes a little adjustment to get used to the seating position and general ergonomics. Volkswagen uses a unique set of seat adjustments that use a small jack-like handle to adjust height and an awkward knob to adjust the rake, but they work well once you’ve grown accustomed to them. The outside mirrors are mounted well forward of the driver, which is actually a better position than that of many other cars which mount them too close to the driver. A huge dash area looms ahead of the driver, who cannot see the hood or anything else but road in front of the windshield. (This big dash area is no doubt part of the New Beetle’s excellent crumple-zone design.) Beefy front A-pillars (the post between the windshield and side window) impede vision in tight corners. Beetle’s sweeping roofline creates tremendous front-seat headroom, though it cramps people in back. In the old Beetle, the windshield was right in front of your face. Now the windshield is steeply raked and has been moved several feet forward.

    Dual 12-volt power outlets and several cup holders make living with the New Beetle convenient. The trunk can be opened by key; we had trouble getting it to open using the remote key fob or interior release. The glove box looks impressive, but its massive door belies the tiny, awkwardly shaped compartment. One-touch power windows are useful. But the rear windows do not open; so rear-seat passengers might feel a little claustrophobic on summer days. The trunk is small, but the rear seats can be folded down to carry more cargo.

    Our GLS 1.8T came with the optional leather seating surfaces. The seats are comfortable and attractive. The flat design of the seat bottom makes it easy to get in and out of the seats, but they don’t provide sufficient side bolstering for driving quickly on winding country roads.

    Driving Impressions

    As mentioned, it takes a little time to grow accustomed to the Beetle’s unique seating ergonomics. Once adjusted, we were able to drive this car quite hard in corners. Steering response is quick and accurate, though at first you feel like you’re driving the car from the back seat. The tires provide good grip and the suspension does an excellent job of keeping them in contact with the road. The Beetle feels quite stable in high-speed sweeping turns. It’s smooth and stable under hard braking, though it doesn’t stop as quickly as the Golf and other cars in its class. Handling among the different Beetle models is quite similar as the suspension is tuned to provide the same driving characteristics.

    The difference lies chiefly in the engines. The standard 115-horsepower engine offers good response and should be perfectly suitable for most drivers. Others have reported they like the TDI diesel engine. Volkswagen builds some of the best small diesel engines in the world and this one is smooth, quiet and clean. It is slightly rougher in texture than the standard gas engine, which some people like because they say it reminds them a bit of the original Bug.

    Those who enjoy the driving experience itself will appreciate the new 1.8-liter turbocharged engine. It lacks some response at the bottom of the rpm range, but once the revs are up it provides good acceleration performance. Step on the gas and the car begins to build momentum, then there’s a whoosh of power. The Beetle 1.8T can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 7.5 seconds, a quite respectable performance.

    By comparison, torque from the base 2.0-liter engine comes on at relatively low revs and makes the car feel quite sprightly around town. You won’t leave a trail of rubber taking off from a stoplight, but it will keep up with many of the cars in its class.

    We prefer the 5-speed manual to the optional 4-speed automatic. That’s the way the original Bugs were equipped and shifting gears is part of the driving fun. The automatic works well enough, but it makes the car slower off the line. Overall, the Beetle feels tight and responsive. The ride is smooth and sporty with out undue noise from the road or engine compartment.

    Summary

    Volkswagen’s New Beetle 1.8T is fun to drive. Its mild manners make for a joyful ride around town. And, of course, its unique styling makes a statement. Driving enthusiasts should find the New Beetle a fun alternative to sport coupes and small sports sedans.

    The standard New Beetle, meanwhile, offers a trendy, reliable fun machine that retails for less than $16,000. We’ll leave choosing the color up to you, but we like green Beetles and blue Beetles and yellow Beetles.

    Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

    CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

    Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

    CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

    Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

    Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

    Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

    Second Hand — Not Second Best

    Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

    But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

    CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

    CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

    Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

    We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
