15. 2017 Volkswagen Beetle Dune

Hmmm…. A Volkswagen Beetle is not a high-performance car, is it? So, the 2017 VW Beetle Dune is not a high-performance car either, is it? Well, despite this truth, ths car deserves its spot on this list for being one of the coolest and cutest looking vehicles of all time. Heck, it is as cute as a bug.

BUT… let us keep all things real. This compact car looks more like a performer than it actually is.

Take a hard long look at this picture. Doesn’t this 2017 VW Bug Dune look like a rallycross car with its heightening ground clearance, its body that has been widened by fender flares, testosterone pumping fascias, special Dune graphics at the rocker-panel lver, and special Dune 18-inch wheels? Yeah, it sure does.

Yet, beneath its cute little hood, sits a very ordinary 1.8-liter 4-V engine that dribbles out a paltry 170 horsepower. Paired to a silky automatic six-speed transmission, this little Beetle gives a smooth and steady, not exciting, ride. Oh, and it gives a ride that is ultra cute.

Just in case it matters, Car and Driver ran a 2017 VW Beetle Dune through a series of tests and came up with the whitebread numbers of ¼-mile time of 7.9 seconds and a zero to 86 miles per hour time of 16 seconds… Did I mention that it is cute, really cute?
