Ready to pounce
It's less a car that reflects the happy look of the previous two generations and more of one that looks determined and ready to pounce. That's by design, said Klaus Bischoff, VW brand design chief, who we spoke to Monday morning in New York City.
"It was clear we had to stick to the round headlights," Bischoff said when talking about the Beetle's historic "face." "We succeeded in keeping the original DNA."
