The 2016 Volkswagen Beetle


Before 2011, the adorable, bubbly Beetle sat squarely in the pantheon of “cars men would rather be hit by than caught driving.” In 2011, however, VW gave its iconic coupe a masculine makeover, broadcasting ads featuring owners fist-bumping Harley riders.

Far-fetched marketing aside, is the new Bug a winner? First, I like the new look; it’s gender-neutral without sacrificing the car’s unique curves. The 1.8L turbocharged engine provides thrilling low-end torque, and the car handles well (though not as sublimely as a Golf GTI).

The new Beetle provides style and well-rounded capability for <$20k.
