The New Beetle is built on the same A platform as the Golf-IV and
Jetta-IV (Bora). The TT is also built on a shortened version of
the A platform, but with significantly uprated suspension with many
higher-spec pieces, as well as a much more rigid body.
In some ways that analogy is not too far off...
