  • Stylish interior design
  • Awkward cargo hatch
  • Poor rearward visibility

  • Coast and Dune trim levels eliminated from 2019 lineup
  • Part of the third Volkswagen Beetle Convertible generation introduced for 2012

Overall rating

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle offers top-down motoring at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, this will be the last year you can get one. Yep — 2019 will be the final year of production for the Volkswagen Beetle. But at least it's exiting gracefully with its classic shape and some upgraded standard equipment.

When VW introduced the New Beetle in the late 1990s, the car's appeal was mostly about looks. This modern Beetle, however, has a peppy-yet-efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. It also has more space than most of its compact convertible rivals. Pricing is favorable, as the Beetle offers an open-air experience for less money than many competitors.

The 2019 Beetle does have some drawbacks, however. For one, it's not particularly exciting to drive. Sure, it has a decent amount of power, but entertainment value will be much higher behind the wheel of a Mazda Miata or a Mini Cooper Convertible. They're priced a bit higher, but we think it's worth the trade-off. Also, the Beetle doesn't have much in the way of advanced driver safety aids.

If your heart is set on the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle, we wouldn't dissuade you. But we would recommend test-driving a few other similarly priced convertibles before making up your mind.

2019 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible models

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle is a two-door, four-passenger convertible with a standard power-operated soft top. There are four trim levels: S, SE, Final Edition SE and Final Edition SEL. Every Beetle Convertible comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission available.

The base S comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, height-adjustable heated front seats, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, a 5-inch touchscreen interface, one USB port, and an eight-speaker sound system that includes a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack and a media player interface.

The SE adds 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, automatic wipers, keyless ignition and entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, simulated leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 6.3-inch touchscreen, HD and satellite radios, VW Car-Net App-Connect (adds various smartphone-integration apps, most notably Android Auto and Apple CarPlay) and VW Car-Net Security & Service emergency communications. The SE Premium package adds 18-inch wheels, bi-xenon headlights and LED taillights, front and rear parking sensors, a Fender audio system, and a 6.3-inch touchscreen with navigation.

On top of the standard SE equipment, the Final Edition SE gets unique 17-inch wheels, special cloth upholstery with simulated leather inserts, some additional Beetle badges on the exterior and interior, and stainless steel pedals. The Final Edition SEL adds all of the SE Premium's added elements plus unique 18-inch wheels, heated front sport seats and genuine leather upholstery.

Driving

Acceleration should be strong whether you're pulling away from a stoplight or overtaking on the freeway. But deceleration takes more effort than anticipated because the brakes aren't quick to respond. Steering is responsive and quick on the highway, and it's light when maneuvering at slow speeds.

Comfort

Though Volkswagen plays off the 2019 Beetle's style, this is one of the more comfortable and refined small convertibles. The seats hug you without being oppressive, and the suspension dispatches road imperfections without transmitting any harshness to the driver.

Interior

The Beetle is bigger and generally easier to use than its few competitors. It has logically placed controls and it's easy to enter and exit. Its roof is also high enough for a pair of tall adults in the front. Visibility out the back is hampered by a small window surrounded by the convertible top.

Utility

There isn't much space in the cabin for personal items, and the small trunk is accessed by an awkward opening. But to be fair, virtually every comparably sized or priced convertible suffers from trunk issues.

Technology

As far as infotainment systems go, the VW Beetle's isn't cutting-edge, but it is relatively easy to use and the screen resolution is sharp enough to read at a quick glance. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are found on all but the most basic S trim.

Great car
CA Dude,03/10/2019
2.0T Final Edition SEL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
We own both a new fully loaded vw beetle convertible and a new fully loaded mini S convertible...and that VW a) is 1/3 less the price of the mini, b) just as fast/peppy, c) has a more comfortable ride, d) has more interior room. I ordered the mini and wish I had ordered my wife's VW. Update: We liked the VW Beetle so much such that we purchased a second!

The last cute Beetle is also very responsive!

2.0T Final Edition SEL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
We bought the 2019 Final Edition SEL convertible and love it! My wife had a 69 Beetle when we first got married.....50 years later we bought another. Do not regret at all. Very pleased w/its overall performance. We have the gas model. The front seats are comfortable and the ride/suspension is great. The pop up roll bars behind the back seat were the Safety item that won me over. Of course the rear seat is for that brother in law that you REALLY don't like (to sit side ways). Our 10 yr old Grandson feels it's just right for him. Quality seems to be good, nice stitching in upholstery. Handling is responsive and tight. Gas mileage comparable to my motorcycle is easy to take. Really only performance clitch seems to be slight turbo lag on initial acceleration....not a show stopper. Brakes have a soft initial feel, but work great once pressure is applied. The pros out way these minor cons by a mile😉

Our 3rd, and by far our best Beetle Convertible

2.0T Final Edition SEL 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
We recently traded our red 2013 beetle convertible for a stunning stonewash blue Final Edition SEL with a brown top. Once inside you have stitched black leather seats, killer Fender sound system and electronic climate control. The biggest improvement over our last model is the safety features with front and rear camera plus blind spot monitors. The car rides like a dream and turns heads with its very unique color combination. If you are looking for a fun, unique and reasonably priced convertible, you can't beat the overall value and features offered with the Beetle SEL Final Edition. Two years later, the car is trouble free and still boatloads of fun to drive.

2.0T S 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Hey, it is so far, one of the best cars I have owned. I love everything about it. The back seets could have more leg room.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
