2019 Nissan 370Z vs. 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Review

Comparison Review

As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan 370Z and the Volkswagen Beetle in the front seats.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z and the Volkswagen Beetle have similar Destination Charges.

The Nissan 370Z is about the same width as the Volkswagen Beetle. When looking at overall length, the Nissan 370Z takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Beetle.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan 370Z does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Beetle.

The Nissan 370Z 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 Nissan 370Z has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Beetle. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

The Nissan 370Z has less seating than the Volkswagen Beetle, making the Volkswagen Beetle the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Nissan 370Z has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Beetle, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

The basic warranty of the Nissan 370Z is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Beetle.
