Much better handling, better driving experience than the Mini Cooper. Much more secure, solid feeling while driving.

Handling Ranked 2012 MINI Cooper worse.
"Much better handling than the Mini Cooper. VW has a solid, secure feel while driving. Mini is fun, but you never feel entirely safe while driving it. In the Mini you always feel like you would be dead if you got hit. The VW feels solid and safe."
Value Ranked 2012 MINI Cooper worse.
"Better ride and handling. Much better interior room. Same retro look with enameled dashboard. Roomy back seat, ample cargo under hatchback. Excellent MPG has exceeded EPA estimate since new. No mechanical issues ever."

2012 Beetle Is Worth A Look-see. — Compared to our 2007 Beetle, handling is better, acceleration is better. Interior is nicer with retro accents and more storage. The audio is a nice addition and the NAV seems adequate. The alloy wheels with the hideous plastic discs are gonna be altered soon. I am swapping oversized plastic disk for the MKIV Jetta AVUS wheel center caps. Its a much more sophisticated look. I'll post pics when that's done. I do wish we could have waited for the 2014 model. The new 1.8T is touted to have 17% better fuel economy with the same performance as the 2.5 UPDATE: With VW maintaining the pricing of the Beetle and replacing the 2.5 with the new 1.8T, this car is a great package. APR Tuning just produced an ECU reflash that will make the car perform even better with more power AND economy...TRIPLE WIN!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Overall safe, comfortable, fun coupe.

Cons: Ugly wheels...which can be fixed.
