"A car that captures the essence of the first Volkswagen Beetle."

The Golf was a fitting successor to the original Beetle, supplying people with basic and affordable modes of transport. That said, the Beetle still enjoyed popularity despite not being produced for the U.S. for decades. Volkswagen, seeing an opportunity, unveiled the Concept 1 at the 1994 North American International Auto Show in Detroit that was instantly recognizable as a modern interpretation on the classic. The car received instant approval from the public and the media, and production commenced almost immediately. The New Beetle hit showroom floors in 1998.

The mechanical makeup of the New Beetle was totally different from the original. Before, its trademark had been an air-cooled mounted at the rear, but now, fully using mechanisms from the Golf IV, it became an FF (Front engine, front drive) car powered by a water-cooled engine.

The base engine was a 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4 that produced 115 HP. The New Beetle also received a high performance model in the lineup called the Turbo. It came with a turbocharged version of the engine that accounted for 148 HP. Later, the RSi, an edition limited to 250 units appeared. It featured larger tires and a rear wing. It was equipped with a 3.2-liter V-6 that spit out 225 HP, allowing the car to reach a top speed of 153 mph.
