    NEW YORK – In its 73-year history, the Beetle has evolved from the hippie ride of choice to a cute chick car. Now Volkswagen is reinventing it again.


    The company introduced an edgy design Monday for its signature model, giving it a flatter roof, a less bulbous shape, narrowed windows and a sharp crease along the side. Gone is the built-in flower vase on the dashboard.

    I'm more interested in the MPG than the design (although I like this one marginally better than the other VW's, I'm not a brand loyal kind of gal). When we downgrade from a family sized car to a car just for us I want something that gets fantastic MPG (gas). Gas here is close to the $4.50 mark. JMHO

    It does look more man-friendly. I like it better, too.
