Coupe and convertible body styles plus three engine choices make the redesigned-for-2012 VW Beetle a versatile vehicle. If you pick the convertible, however, you'll be opting for style over practicality and even driving fun, says Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. The power soft-top is quick, but visibility is bad; the cabin is full of ergonomic comfort issues, and a clumsy ride takes the fun out of any drive, Mays says.
