What's the used Volkswagen Beetle hatchback like?

The original VW Beetle may have been designed in the 1930s for the Third Reich, but this latest version is really a VW Golf in a bug's clothing. Ironic really - the Golf was originally designed to replace the Beetle.

What you get in this modern classic is a well-built, solid car with a nicely controlled ride and responsive steering, allowing you to tackle corners with confidence. The problem is that those classic lines cause a classic problem: visibility isn't particularly good, and it's hard to see the car's corners when parking. At least wind and road noise are kept to a minimum.
