    Expert Rating

    3.9 (Good)
    22 City / 31 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2013 Volkswagen Beetle OVERVIEW

    The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle is a great choice for the buyer that's looking for a fun, stylish car with a wide variety of engines and trim levels to choose from.

    With the optional 2.0L, 200-hp Turbo and the TDI diesel delivering up to 41 mpg highway, there's something for everyone from the performance enthusiast to the most penny-pinching hyper-miler. If you go anywhere in the world you're likely to see someone driving an old Beetle. Not only someone, but anyone. That's because the old Beetle appealed to many different types of people for many different reasons.

    The outgoing New Beetle, first introduced in 1998, failed to live up to the same levels of mass appeal. It was cute, had a soft, bubbly exterior and, of course, the infamous flower vase (which was standard). Despite it's appearance, it was still a lot of fun to drive, reliable and reasonably efficient. With the many redesigns found in the 2013 Beetle,

    Volkswagen has sought to win back some of the mass appeal that made the original the icon that it is. The differences are easy to spot, even at first glance. The 2013 Beetle shares it's platform with the new Golf. The wheelbase is now both longer and wider, giving the Beetle a more aggressive, planted stance than it's predecessor. Really, it could be said that, for the most part, the Beetle is a Golf that has been reshaped and formed to fit a more stylish ride. To power the newest new Beetle, a 2.5L, 170hp engine comes as standard. This is an increase in displacement over the 1.8L that came in the previous Beetle.

    The power band is smooth and, while not world-beating, is a hoot to drive for only being a standard offering. Being that it is a Golf at heart, the Beetle handles well thanks to the sport-tuned suspension and the electromechanical steering that also comes as standard, keeping with the current trend of electrically-aided power steering systems. As per usual with these systems, there does seem to be a little bit of a loss of "road feel" in the steering wheel with the addition of the electric steering, but not so bad as to be terribly noticeable unless you were looking to find it. All in all, the 2013 Beetle is a very fun car worthy of the admiration of someone, everywhere, which would make it's ancestor very proud.
