When the first Beetle rolled off the production line, it was simply called the Volkswagen—"the people's car"—but its distinctive shape inspired nicknames across the globe: Beetle, Käfer, Vocho, Coccinelle, Fusca, or Maggiolino! In total, 21.5 million cars were sold, making it the most popular car manufactured off a single platform of all time.
More than 60 years later, in 1998, the "New Beetle" rekindled the spirit and imagination of the original for a new generation of Volkswagen owners. This second-generation version sparked another round of "Beetle Mania".
Now, the third-generation of the internationally beloved Beetle is ready for prime time, going on sale in the United States this fall. There will be two models at launch: the Beetle and the sporty turbo. In 2012, a TDI® Clean Diesel will go on sale, which is likely to be the most fuel-efficient Beetle ever made.

The Volkswagen Beetle is a stylish hatchback that mixes modern mechanical
parts with a look inspired by the big-selling original from the sixties.
It's only offered as a three-door model and comes in standard, Design and
top-spec Sport trims. There are two petrol engines available -- a 1.2-litre
turbo and a 1.4-litre with turbo and Supercharger. The Beetle shares its mechanical
components with the Volkswagen Golf hatchback, but has a more flamboyant
1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle (VW 1303) Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Review, and Test Drive
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
