2002 Volkswagen Beetle Overview

Volkswagen upped the ante in 2002 by offering the Beetle in a new trim package, the Turbo S. The fastest Beetle yet, it was powered by VW's 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, with a bump in horsepower from 150 to 180. A new six-speed manual transmission was also part of the package, as were such features as a front spoiler, a redesigned rear bumper, an Electronic Stabilization Program, and special 17-inch wheels.

The rest of the line received only minor upgrades, such as new colors (Riviera Blue, Pastel Green) and larger tires on 16-inch wheels.

The Beetle continued to draw the admiration and enthusiasm of drivers, with new bright colors only adding to the visual appeal of the vehicle. There were a few minor complaints - - about the limited storage space in the trunk and rear seat room, for instance - - but generally drivers were won over by the Beetle's nimbleness, sporty look, and "fun" factor.
