2012 VW Beetle prices

The base 2.5 Liter will be priced at $19 765, in the US. That includes destination.
Which is a few hundred dollars more than the previous model.

The 2012 Beetle is a roomier, more upscale car with a bit more power than the previous one.
It also now comes with 17 inch wheels standard.

The 2.0 Turbo model starts at $24 165. It also includes a six speed manual and 18 inch wheels, among other things.
Which is about $300 less than the VW GTI with the same engine.

The base 2012 Beetle is about $1500 less than a base Mini.

I guess this is in line with the competition. Unless you compare it to the much cheaper Fiat 500...

What about the TDI and Cabrio? Fiat 500 seems like a better deal so far.

TDI price hasn't been announced, yet.
I was told last year by VW that the Cabrio would start at around $26000.

The 500 is a better deal, but also a smaller car, with far less power.

I really don't see the Fiat 500 as a direct comparison to the larger beetle. The size difference is significant. I like the 500 a lot. But it's immediately clear why the larger, better appointed and more powerful VW should cost more.
