2017 Volkswagen Beetle Glendale CA

Obviously, if you're looking for affordability and economy above all else, your options aren't much better than either the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle in Glendale CA or 2017 Ford Fiesta. Though you can expect greater efficiency (and overall driving range) for the price from the Fiesta, the Beetle offers a more adrenaline-packed experience thanks to its turbocharged base engine. In addition, the Beetle can also provide more interior cargo volume (or leather-stitched seating if you're taking passengers along for the ride), and you can ride with the knowledge that everyone (or thing) inside will be kept safe from harm. This is because of a laundry list of class-leading driver assistance innovations on board the Beetle, which makes it a top choice for just about anyone. In turn, the Beetle has been awarded a 5 star overall NHTSA safety rating, something many other vehicles just can't lay claim to.
