Through the decades, the design of the Volkswagen Beetle convertible has evolved from the austere looks of the original to the way-too-cute previous generation known as the New Beetle. The folks at VW have given the latest version a distinctly more muscular stance while also dropping the silly and eventually ironic "New" moniker.
Besides the obvious appeal of having a power-operated folding soft top, the Beetle convertible boasts a high-quality interior, a relatively roomy cabin and turbocharged engines that are both powerful and efficient. Put it all together and you have a convertible that deserves the serious consideration of anyone looking to enjoy some open-air motoring.
Used Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Models
The latest-generation Volkswagen Beetle convertible debuted for 2013. As with the coupe, the convertible's transformation from the previous New Beetle guise included a longer, lower and wider body. Inside, the broad dash with the friendly flower vase gave way to a more vertical windshield and body-color trim. In addition to a sleeker look, the car's increased dimensions provided a roomier interior, especially in the backseat, and a slightly larger trunk. For that first year, the convertible was available in special editions ('50s Edition, '60s Edition and '70s Edition) with unique exterior paint colors.
These Beetle convertibles are similar to today's apart from lacking the telematics system, the availability of a rearview camera, and the Turbo version (renamed the R-Line for '14) having 10 less horsepower.
