Right now here in Oz, Volkswagen is cutting Saab’s lunch – big time. A new reasonably priced Passat is making the 9-3 look slightly pedestrian at the entry level and the emergence of this car saw a lot of people move to VW here in Oz – it’s possibly even one explanation for the sales decline here in the latter half of last year.
And then there’s the Eos. The ripple effects of that one are as yet unknown, but if the reviews translate into sales then the iConvertible is also in for a rough year.
As a consequence, I’m tending to watch what VW do with some interest. But when I saw this I couldn’t help but have a chuckle. It looks like an abnormally ripened berry or something.
Maybe it’s just me.
It’s a limited ‘Red’ edition Beetle as shown in Auto Express.
