VW New Beetle: Next generation will chase MINI

VW New Beetle

MINI will face tough competition with the new Audi A1 and the next-generation VW New Beetle.

A second generation of Volkswagen’s reborn Beetle will be launched next year with more focus on dynamics and less on retro styling.

To be previewed as a concept at the Los Angeles motor show in November, the production Beetle will go on sale in the UK in May 2011. A cabriolet will follow about a year later.
