2015 Volkswagen Beetle Hardtop

This week’s Alex On Autos‘ $25,885 tester was fitted with an automatic transmission and achieved 28 mpg during its stay with Mr. Dykes. U.S. sales of the Beetle are down 20% to less than 11,000 units through the first five months of 2015. It ranks 65th among cars in new vehicle sales volume.
