You Can’t Go Wrong With The Volkswagen Beetle
If you’re like many Americans, you hear the word “beetle” and your mind automatically goes to the 1960’s when the Volkswagen Beetle was the king of cars. In the 1960’s, students would even hold contests to see how many of them could jam themselves into the vehicle. Its simple design and affordable cost would make it a popular choice all around the world for decades.
In the late ‘60’s, audiences fell in love with the Beetle all over again with the release of Walt Disney’s “The Love Bug” film. The film’s “protagonist” Herbie was a modified 1963 Beetle who came to life and won races in order to help his driver. After the initial success of the first film, Disney would go on to make several sequels featuring Herbie and his adventures.
In 1972, the Beetle surpassed Ford’s Model T as the best-selling car of all time, a huge milestone in automotive history. In the late 1990’s, the Beetle was reintroduced to the world. At this point, Baby Boomers were in the midst of a major nostalgia craze; the comeback was so popular that some markets had to issues waiting lists for the new models.
Today, consumers still love the VW Beetle. It’s popular for its unique design, easy zippy handling, and iconic status. The vehicle comes with The People’s Choice warranty, which includes full warranty coverage for 6 years or 72,000 miles. And don’t let its size fool you: the spacious interior features enough room for 4 people comfortably. The vehicle offers plenty of legroom for all, storage pockets, cup holders, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The suspension offers you a smooth ride.
U.S. News and World Report gives the 2018 Beetle a #10 rating in the best subcompact cars. According to the magazine, the ranking is the result of user-friendly interior features and its “peppy, turbo-charged engine.”
