Interesting track test report here of the VW Beetle. Enjoy!
Taking a Volkswagen Beetle to the track feels a little bit like taking a Camaro to a farmers market, but hey, we test everything. Besides, this isn’t your ordinary flower-vase-having, hippie-driven Beetle. Our Long-Termer is a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo. It has a 200-horsepower 2.0-liter inline-4 and is built on the same platform as the fanboy-favorite Golf GTI. Oh, and did we mention that it’s 70 pounds lighter than a GTI?
