Love my little Bug, the gas mileage is great. The convertible top is just awesome, just a push of a button and it is down. I had a Jeep soft top before and taking the top down was a chore and of course "no trunk." So far, I have no complaints with my Bug.
I absolutely loveee my car! this is my first car and I always dreamed of having a beetle of my own. The car has a great fit for a 5'6, southern belle like myself, if you have concerns with the comfort of the car, no worries! My boyfriend is 6'3 and weigh over 200 pounds, he's quite comfortable in the passenger seat but loves driving her just as much as me. LOL The aux is by far the best feature to me, Im a complete music lover! The interior design is beautiful, I get a lot of cool air with a/c. only minor issue I have is a high pitch squeak when I roll down the driver side window. Usually takes only $20 to fill my tank up which is a bonus. but in all I absolutely love my car, I would hope to grow old with her and drive her forever.
Most cars in its price are shaped for performance in a wind tunnel and not pretty to look at. It has style and character. Creature comforts are well accounted for in the Fender and GLE models especially. The 2.0 turbo is surprisingly quick and efficient (28-30 hwy). Stock tires are just ok, but easily upgraded to sticky more quiet rubber (Potenza RE 760's do well in FL)
Well into its fourth decade of production, the compact Volkswagen Beetle is one of the best-selling cars in automotive history. The Volkswagen Beetle is a compact four-door sedan built to appeal to commuters who seek versatility over style. Now in its 11th generation, the Beetle has a bolder design, but still keeps to its traditional roots.
The Volkswagen Beetle was a worldwide icon. When it was originally introduced, not many vehicles were sold - now, the Beetle has emerged as one of the best-selling vehicles in the world. Though the Beetle has not changed often over the years, it's interesting to note that the newest Volkswagen Beetle models have a slightly larger frame; it is longer, wider, and lower than the previous generation.
Due to the recent Volkswagen Beetle's larger frame, the interior is roomier than is expected, especially in the back seat. However, the Beetle's driving experience largely depends on the engine chosen. The base cylinder is respectably powerful, but has unremarkable fuel economy. More expansive engines seen on higher trims offer significant power, refinement, and fuel efficiency that the greatly benefits the Beetle's day-to-day drive.
Over the years, the Volkswagen Beetle's design has evolved from its functionality-driven roots to having a sharper look in recent models. With its iconic style, bright exterior, and nostalgic appeal, the Beetle will always stand apart.
The Volkswagen Beetle hatchback is offered in four main trim levels: the base trim, the R-Line, the diesel-powered TDI, and GSR. Volkswagen offers a 2.5L four-cylinder engine in its base trim, with a 1.8L turbocharged four-cylinder engine on higher trims. Modern Beetle base models are equipped with a range of features typically expected in today's vehicles, such as Bluetooth, eight-speaker sound system, and keyless entry. Major feature options include a sunroof, touchscreen navigation system, and rearview camera.
