Meet the Beetle: 2012 model is much improved
Let's clear this up first: When the Beetle was revived in 1998, Volkswagen called it the "New Beetle," which has been the model's official name since. But now that there really is a new New Beetle, VW has dropped the official "New" for 2012, so this is just the Beetle again.
