2017 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Review

Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus CT 200h than the Volkswagen Beetle. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus CT 200h and the Volkswagen Beetle in the front seats.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus CT 200h as you will with the Volkswagen Beetle, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Lexus CT 200h will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Beetle, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Lexus CT 200h is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Beetle.

Since the Lexus CT 200h is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Beetle, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus CT 200h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Beetle.

The Lexus CT 200h has much less torque than the Volkswagen Beetle, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Lexus CT 200h has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Beetle, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus CT 200h is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Beetle. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

The Lexus CT 200h offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Beetle, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

The basic warranty of the Lexus CT 200h is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Beetle.
