2014 Volkswagen Beetle Styling

9.0
On Styling
Much has been made of the more masculine look of the newest car to wear the Beetle name, but in truth, it's just a bit more gender-neutral than the very cute, but also predominantly woman-owned New Beetle.

However you care to draw the lines, however, the lines of the Beetle itself are clearly attractive. Simple, straightforward, with a classic quality that hints at future timelessness, the Beetle's flattened arches and subtle flares could only fit one car. The interior of the Beetle is simple and useful, a nod to its classic predecessor, while incorporating all of the modern digital tech you'd want.

For those with a taste for the look of the Beetle in the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s, Volkswagen has some ready-made trim lines to evoke the spirit of each decade. The '50s model in particular is compellingly simple and clean in its aesthetic.

With a manlier look and a convertible variant, the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle is the right blend of modern and classic.

The new Beetle GSR model adds its own visual punch, with a black-and-yellow theme inside and out making for a sporty, eye-catching look.
