He's just a generic subcompact hatchback. He's got styling cues similar to several cars from the Pontiac Vibe, Ford Focus, and some of the smaller Peugeots

Here is part of what ben?s World of Transformers said to describe the new vehicle mode ofr Classics Bumblebee.
Vehicle Mode:
Some time ago it was revealed that an updated Bumblebee had been proposed for the Binaltech line, but due to car manufacturer objects, the VW Bug could not be reproduced for any line that involved war (however I did sneak the BT Bumblebee into 2005's "Descent into Evil" comic book. Still, the designers wanted to give Bumblebee a form that evoked the rounded, VW form. The result was a vehicle that is part Subaru, part Honda hatchback and part VW.

The overall shape of the vehicle borrows from the Subaru Hatchback, starting with a sloped front end leading to a high cabin section that then slopes down to a fairly angled rear section. The front end has points on it near the fenders that are similar in design to the front end of a Honda Civic hatchback. The VW influence is most easily seen on the sections around the wheels where they are curved, especially around the rear wheels.
