Volkswagen Super Beetle Seat Belt
The Volkswagen Beetle is a compact economy sedan with a 2-door saloon and 2-door convertible body style options. It is also known as the Volkswagen Type 1, Super Beetle, Bug, Superbug, Kafer, VW 1200, 1300, 1500, 1302/1303, Garbus, Fusca, and Caroche. The standard model is known as the TYPE 111-112, still uses the 36 hp 1200 engine. Adolf Hitler was actually the one who created the concept of the peoples' car with the objectives of having a cheap, simple car that needed to be produced for his new road network. It was first intended to be used by the members of the National Socialist party but was later used as a military vehicle. Though the Beetles vehicle design was first created for World War II, it started to really sell towards the end of the 1940s. It is still known as an icon of post-war West Germany.
In 1970, Volkswagen released the “L” (Luxus) package for the Beetle. 1302 was a larger version of the regular beetle and was marketed as the Super Beetle in North America. As a premium model, it resulted in the standard beetle losing some of its earlier features in order to reduce the selling price.
The Volkswagen Beetle has great safety ratings. The IIHS gave the Beetle a “Good” rating in Moderate Overlap Front Rest, Side Impact Test, Rear Crash Protection, and Roof Strength Test. It also got “Marginal” in the Small Overlap Front Driver Test. The NHTSA gave the Beetle 4 star rating for both frontal and rollover categories. Safety is key.
