7. Volkswagen Beetle (1.4)

2012-08-10 09:39

Like the Fiat 500, the Beetle is another re-imagining of a classic model.  However the interior is a bit of a disappointment compared to the funky exterior and it is rather cramped in the back.

The 1.4-litre engine can struggle to pull what is a fairly heavy car and the boot is small for a car of this size. But what it lacks in sporty poise and practicality, it makes up for in sheer fun.

The roof doesn’t fold away neatly, but rather perches on the back in true sixties fashion – something you’re likely to love or hate.
