The Volkswagen New Beetle was first introduced in 1998.
Unlike the original Beetle, the New Beetle has its engine in the front and luggage storage in the rear.
At the 1994 North American International Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled the Concept 1, retro-themed concept car with a resemblance to the original Volkswagen Beetle.
It is currently assembled in the VW Puebla factory in Mexico.
Engine choices include the 2.0L inline-4 for the base model, the 1.9L TDI, which was discontinued in 2006, and the 1.8L Turbo inline-4 for the Sport models.
In May 2010, Volkswagen announced that production of the New Beetle will cease in 2011.
