Interior Design Wins in the 2016 Beetle

It's easy to spot a Volkswagen Beetle. The rounded lights and unique body shape make it a vehicle that stands out, and in all the best ways. Improved over the years, this classic little compact is a great option for daily commuters who wish for a little more power than the MINI Cooper has to offer. The boxy MINI Cooper has a 1.5-liter I-4 base engine that produces 134 horsepower. When you compare it to the 1.8-liter I-4 engine under the hood of the Beetle, it's easy to see why the 170 horsepower races ahead of the competition.

When it comes to the interior, the designs might surprise you! The interior of the MINI Cooper features rounded vents and shapes, while the Beetle offers a more refined and functional interior. While the quirky interior of the MINI stands out, it doesn't offer the same modern charm that the interior of the Beetle displays so well. Both vehicles come with a variety of optional technology and safety features, but it's easy to see why so many drivers choose the Beetle for their unique and affordable compact car!
