    Expert Rating

    4.5 (Excellent)
    25 City / 34 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.

    2014 Volkswagen Beetle OVERVIEW

    The Volkswagen Beetle is a rare combination of great retro looks, fun-spirited driving and a dash of practicality as well. The Beetle offers a performance Turbo model, a fuel sipping clean diesel engine and a convertible variant. The compact rides on a very capable platform borrowed from the Golf, delivering competent handling as well as impressive safety features and a stylish, well-executed interior.

    What's New for 2014

    There are a number of significant changes. A new 1.8-liter turbo is set to replace the 2.5-liter engine midway through the 2014 product year. Also new is an independent rear suspension and a limited-edition GSR trim. The high performance turbo models are now called R-Line.

    Choosing Your Volkswagen Beetle

    Which trim level you choose is closely related to the engine you choose, and all but the GSR are available as a convertible:


    The Beetle starts 2014 with a base 2.5-liter five-cylinder available with a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. It puts out 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy numbers are 22mpg city and 31mpg highway with manual transmission, or 22mpg city and 29mpg highway with automatic.


    This engine is due to be phased out midway through 2014 and replaced with an all-new 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that matches the five-cylinder's 170 horsepower and ups the torque to 184 pound-feet.

    2.0L TDI

    The 2-liter turbodiesel delivers 140 horsepower and an impressive 236 pound-feet of torque, and is matched with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The TDI boasts remarkably thrifty fuel economy of 28 mpg city and 41 mpg highway with manual transmission, and 29 mpg city and 39 mpg highway with automatic transmission.

    2.0T R-Line and 2.0T GSR

    The high-performance models use a gas-powered 2-liter four-cylinder turbo that makes 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. It can be fitted with a six-speed manual delivering 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway or the excellent six-speed DSG automatic delivering 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
