VW's new Super Beetle dispenses with Dr Porsche's original torsion bar front suspension and uses the MacPherson strut-type. The rear suspension is now by double-jointed half-shafts and semi-trailing arms. The transformation is completed by a 60 h.p. (SAE) version of the evergreen air-cooled flat-four engine, and a new lengthened front luggage boot. Luggage capacity is increased 85 percent, and the spare wheel now lays flat. Track is three inches wider than the 1500 Beetle it replaces, and handling is greatly improved. Front wings have been reshaped, and there are new bumpers.
£1,112 (incl. P.T.)
Estate: £1,231 (incl. P.T.)
Electronic fuel-injection is normal equipment on the newly-designated TE model, controlled by a computer the size of a cigar box. The injection equipment makes for easy starting and for good emission control, but power-output of the TA Fastback (with twin carburettors) is identical at 65 (SAE) h.p. All 1971 VW 1600s have throughflow ventilation, and the slots for stale air expulsion can be seen behind the rear windows. The rear parcels shelf has been 'stepped' and the modification has increased luggage boot capacity. Manual models have shorter gear lever movement.
2-dr.: £1,337 (incl. P.T.)
4-dr.: £1,397 (incl. P.T.)
Estate: £1,431 (incl. P.T.)
VW's largest passenger car is now available with a new fully automatic transmission, specially matched to the 1679 c.c. fuel-injected flat-four engine. The Variant estate car also has the option of the new transmission. All models have an electronically controlled interior heating system, the temperature being automatically adjusted. In addition, at the flick of a switch, the interior can be warmed without starting the engine. The heater turns itself off after ten minutes to avoid battery drain. The front bootlid is a new design to absorb crash energy.
