The Beetle may look like the good ol’ Bug from many years ago, but it offers a whole lot more than the original. It has more interior space, more cargo space…more power…and more choices to power the Beetle. It is still unlike the original – the engine is up front and there is a hatchback or trunk to handle your daily cargo. There is still an essence that makes the Beetle what it is – just like before, it continues to break the mold from the rest of the crowd.
Its iconic shape is available in two body styles – coupe and convertible. Both the coupe and convertible can seat at least four and carry enough luggage for a weekender. Inside, there is a nifty dual glovebox set-up to put all of your fun things. Volkswagen calls one of them the Kaferfach – the upper one, that is. It fits more than gloves,
Under the front hood is a choice of engines. The new standard 2.0 liter turbocharged TSI engine has plenty of power – 174 horsepower on tap and comes available only with a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.
Volkswagen also designed their Beetle to keep everyone on board safe. An advanced safety cage locks and a crash-optimized front end protects its occupants from any collision one might encounter. Convertibles also add an automatic rollover support system to protect everyone inside the cabin. Every Beetle gets anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-pressure distribution, electronic stability control and an Intelligent Crash Response System. Now standard across all Beetle models is the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System.
The Beetle comes with Car-Net, the connected car services suite from Volkswagen that assist when the Beetle is involved in an accident, is stolen or for any other emergencies and services as needed anytime, every day. Available on all Beetle models is the MIB II family of infotainment systems, driven by Car-Net.
There are plenty of models to choose from. In both the coupe and convertible, you start with the 2,0T S, SE, and Final Editions in SE and SEL trims. Coupes start from $20,895, whereas convertibles start at $25,995.
