The Beetle's pretty and the Turbo version we tested is also capable of impress you during intimate moments, but the car knows that it can't only rely on these assets for you to live with it, so it also offers a decent level of comfort.
We don't know is she can cook (we didn't to want to risk ruining the engine compartment with some meat wrapped in tin foil), but the Beetle's interior is now more generous: there's plenty of space in the front and the individual rear seats are decent.
The visibility is surprisingly good, despite the low profile of her hat and the soundproofing is within the class limits.
Unfortunately, the suspension doesn't know how to handle the entire range of problems that can sometimes be raised by the road. Our test car dealt with this problem by trading handling in favor of ride (not to an extreme level) by using high profile winter tires.
The Beetle Turbo is set up in such a way that if she's driven at any pace up to eight tenths it provides a pretty fast yet smooth experience. Thus, the vehicle can be used for longer trips, but only by two passengers.
The good ergonomics brought by the VW education also contribute to a good overall feeling. You'll be safe if, when talking to your best friend about her, you tell him that, for this chapter, she's OK.
