The Beetle doesn't sit comfortably in any one genre, spanning coupe, hatchback, and convertible competition with its unique form.
The MINI Cooper is its closest natural competition.
The MINI is more compact and more fun to drive, and it offers a similar image factor, but at a much higher price.
Ford's Mustang is another classic-meets-modern image car, but it's considerably quicker and sportier in most guises, and even competitive on gas mileage in V-6 guise.
The Nissan Juke offers its own special look, but ride quality and gas mileage aren't the best.
The Audi TT is a notch above the Beetle in performance and price, but that sophistication might draw in buyers looking for a more grown-up ride.
