Volkswagen Beetle

A
20th-century design icon gets a 21st-century update, with the most noticeable
difference being the replacement of the cathedral ceiling, introduced in 1998,
by a sleeker, sportier roofline. The new, wider Beetle also features a rear
spoiler for improved aerodynamics, a look that complements the turbocharged
engine, offered in both diesel and gas versions. Available this fall. From $20,000; vw.com.
