For this year, VW dropped the Darth Vader thing that they focused on the last two years and opted for a more happy commercial. As for the previous superbowl commercial, the new Beetle is the star of the ad. It features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder engine producing 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. This is the same engine that is used for the golf GTI. A Beetle R is being worked on it will most probably be equipped by the same engine that will be tweaked and tuned a bit in order to deliver a couple of extra ponies. For now the Beetle Turbo has really turned from a girls car (with its flour vase that was standard) to a guys car. It’s design has really evolved. Would I’ll buy of of those? Well I think the Beetle still has that girl spirit in it. It would need a couple of years before being accepted by the masculine community.
For the ad, it is a very happy and fresh commercial, I really had a smile on my face at the end of it. The beetles front grill, is sort of smiling at you! Well in this world of chaos and stress and work, we all need a smile from time to time to peace-out 🙂 be happy!!
