2008 Volkswagen Beetle Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 9 reviews
Not much changed for the Volkswagen New Beetle in 2008. Marketed as a modern interpretation of the original Beetle, this model comes in coupe and convertible versions. The New Beetle comes in 12 trims and sports a 2.5-liter, 150-hp inline five-cylinder engine.
Gas mileage comes out to around 20 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway. All trims have 2 doors and seat 4 passengers. Convertibles have a max cargo capacity of 5 cubic feet, while coupes have a roomier 27 cubic feet.
With solid steering, good gas mileage, and a tasteful blend of old and new, drivers like this re-interpretation of the original Beetle. On the other hand, maybe Volkswagen should have added some more horses to the powertrain. Regardless, if you've got love for a truly old school foreign import, the '08 New Beetle could make it worth your while to drive.
