It seems that it will be very hard for VW to overcome the "chick car" reputation of the Beetle. Most men I know would not buy a beetle because of that reputation alone. The reputation set aside, while the new stying cues are visible it doesn't appear to be distict enough to set it apart as a different car. It should appeal to women the same as the old "New Beetle".

And I would place bets that within weeks of introduction someone will offer an aftermarket flower vase, to replace the one taken out on this new model, once again adding to the "chick car" reputation.

P.S. If VW wanted to really break the "chick car" mold they should have ask the news media to have a guy do this review.
