What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Retro drop-top cruiser - comfortable and packed with safety equipment

Against Too much body roll, expensive, no rear legroom and visibility poor with roof up

Verdict You'll stand out, and under the skin it's a Golf - but it has a Golf's problems

Go for… The 1.6

Avoid… The 1.4

Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet
  • 1. Always check the roof mechanism, and the general condition of the fabric
  • 2. Clutch may need replacing at 40,000 miles
  • 3. Fashionable interior is funky, but not so practical
