According to the sources, the 2010 VW Beetle will once again be styled in California and engineered in Germany. The upcoming Beetle will be equipped with improved roof, fenders, engines, a radiator, car accessories, striking design cues, and other noteworthy modifications. Volkswagen designers chose a more modern and sporty look.

The new Beetle is being penned to easily adapt for a wide variety of model variants. The upcoming Beetle is the reason why the German automaker has hesitated bringing the Scirocco, an almost identical car, stateside.

The Beetle was widely scorned for its odd styling, rough ride, weak power, and high noise levels. It remained a hot seller even as rear-wheel drive traditional subcompacts were improved until ultimately replaced by front-wheel drive models. “In principle, I like the New Beetle save for its interior. Buyers seeking practicality and efficiency over style and nostalgia will likely pass on a Beetle."
