Jeremy Clarkson Hates the New 2012 VW Beetle...

VW unveiled the all-new 2012 Beetle two months ago and the immediate response seemed to be "it's better than the last one!" VW has decided to add a lot more "sport" into the 2012 Beetle than ever before. It's even available with the same engine as the VW GTI, but that isn't enough to convince the Top Gear crew and Jeremy Clarkson...

Clarkson's main criticism with the new Beetle is that it isn't sporty and even if VW claims the new Beetle is sporty, "There has never been a sporty Beetle. Not even Herbie. He wasn't sporty. He was just speeded up."

The 2012 VW Beetle is far "sportier" than the last one, but do you agree with Clarkson? Do you think anyone will care about the new Beetle?
