Curious if the Beetle handles as well as the current GTI. Love the style though!
The Launch Edition Turbo Beetle which comes with Sport Suspension/19" wheel package actually pulls more G's than a GTI on the skid pad*. But, the Beetle is less aerodynamic. As a result, they tie in the slalom.
* per Cars.com which compiles test results from multiple sources
2012 Beetle 2.0 TSI/DSG White Launch Edition
2012 A3 2.0 TDI/DSG White S-Line Premium
I did find the Circles and Denim blue on the options list here, but the Design trim (where Denim blue and Circles are available) is only available for the 1.2 TSI and 2.0 TSI, not for the 1.6 TDI.
People would think I'm gay, if I drove that, but whatever.
Hope you like
PS I dont know what the list price is over there in the USA , but this car lists with no options , at £21,500 , and with the options this car had (Fender Sounds , Pan Roof , Full Leather , RNS315 , Xenon Lights) was getting close to £27,000 , which is about $42,000 USD.
