Volkswagen is redesigning it popular small car Volkswagen Beetle for 2010 Edition. 2012 Volkswagen New Beetle will undergo an evolutionary styling change when production begins next year.
Since Beetle shares the same platform of VW Golf, New Beetle will continue to be assembled in Puebla, Mexico.
Spy photographs of the car reveal that all of the sheet metal has been replaced, but the overall design remains retro.
In an interview last October to Autocar, Stefan Jacoby, who at that time was the president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, said the next generation New Beetle would have more space for rear-seat passengers and better packaging. However, the overall dimensions of the vehicle would not significantly change.
Jacoby said the major complaint about the current car — aside from its age — is the cramped rear seat. Few changes have been made to the current New Beetle since it debuted in 1998.
