No discussion of the Beetle Convertible would be complete without mentioning its iconic shape. Volkswagen's engineers made several structural modifications to the Beetle Convertible to help it retain the bold and purposeful stance of the Coupe. It has wider tracks and a longer wheelbase than the previous year's model, while the A-pillar’s interior bar is 0.5 mm thicker and made from ultra-high-strength hot-formed steel instead of cold-formed metal. Top up, the Beetle Convertible has an even lower roofline than the Coupe’s. Volkswagen decided to stick with a traditional softtop because it allows for a roofline that’s more like the original 1949 type 15’s. Also, a softtop takes up less space than a folding hardtop, thus giving more trunk space.
You can have the utmost peace of mind of safety for you and your passengers in the Beetle Convertible. The starting point in the Beetle’s safety armory is a very rigid body structure that uses ultra-high-strength, hot-formed steels in the crash-load paths and seamless laser welds. Additional standard safety features include Electronic Stability Control (ESC), antilock disc brakes, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and Volkswagen's Car-Net telematics system.
The Beetle Convertible comes with a 1.8-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic or the 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engines with the acclaimed DSG six-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual. If you desire even more impressive performance, you can get the powerful R-Line model, with its double-overhead cam, 16-valve, 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 210 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.
The Interior of the Beetle Convertible offers a pleasing combination of comfort and functionality. Similar to the original Beetle, the new car has an extra glovebox integrated into the dashboard—the kaeferfach or “Beetle bin”. The lid folds upward, while the standard glovebox opens downward. Another classic feature is the auxiliary instrumentation package located above the audio/navigation system that consists of an oil temperature gauge, a sport chronometer and a boost pressure gauge.
