The all new Beetle is based on the Jetta's PQ35 platform and comes with a new engine for India, the 150PS version of the 1.4-litre TSI petrol found in the Jetta. We found the new Beetle was not just cheerful but also quite practical and capable. You can read more about it in our road testor scroll down for some images.
