The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mini Cooper is an icon made better by nimble handling and infinite customization. The 2018 Volkswagen Beetle is a competent small car that’s showing its age. The same could be said for every other Beetle on the road and that hasn’t stopped it yet, has it?
