Volkswagen GRC Beetle 2014 Review

Making debut in 1998 the Volkswagen New Beetle was based on the Golf. By being based we simply mean the shape which it was sharing from the 40s to 70s models. However year 2012 marked a glorifying benchmark for the company and they named it as just Beetle (removing New). With hard lines, low slung and muscular body it created new benchmarks and here we are for the year 2014 with all new Volkswagen GRC Beetle 2014 bringing sporty looks and menacing power coming from beneath its hood. Let us check the review of Volkswagen GRC Beetle 2014 to know more about it.

INTERIOR

There is no information shared by company for the interior of Volkswagen GRC Beetle 2014, however some general perception expect a multifunction sport steering wheel in front of sports bucket seats with secure harness. The cabin should come to be as a driver oriented one. No fancy features are expected inside that could in any way distract the driver’s mind. As far as seating is concerned we expect it to come as two-seater but looking at few recently released racing models and concept having a single-seat with option to g for passenger seat also won’t be wrong.

EXTERIOR

The exterior of all new Volkswagen GRC Beetle 2014 differentiates it with its wide shoulders and widebody fenders. It’s a hardcore racing model, let that then be its looks (paint), architecture and we expect the same for its aerodynamic kit. Just like interior not much has been shared regarding the materials used but yes the track-based model comes with arching silhouette and bug eye headlights over the classic retro body. The front bumper of Volkswagen GRC Beetle also gets a aggressive looks making the entire front fascia worth a sight.

PERFORMANCE

Borrowing it from the Global Rallycross Championship the Volkswagen GRC Beetle 2014 hides beneath its hood a 1.6 Liter Four-cylinder engine generating 544 hp of total output paired to a sequential six-speed transmission. With its thundering power the Volkswagen GRC Beetle is capable of knocking 60 mph from standstill in just 2.1 seconds.
