2013 Volkswagen Beetle vs Eos Convertible snowy 0-16 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle convertible and the VW Eos are cars tailor made for warm and sunny destinations like California and Florida. While the VW Beetle convertible has a soft top that folds down for topless driving fun, the Volkswagen Eos has a hardtop that also folds down in a ballet of engineering prowess. Both car will seat 4 people and both cars are front wheel drive. Both cars of course offer year round driving fun but how do these convertibles fare in the cold North when the snow starts to fly and the roads freeze. We decided to find out by putting both convertibles to the very first TFLcar 0-16-0 MPH test, as well as our brand new snowball performance roof test in another fun TFLcar Mashup review.





VW Beetle TDI Diesel Mile High 0-60 MPH Performance Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 VW Beetle TDI should be a fast car from 0-60 at a mile above sea level. Not only does the new Volkswagen Beetle have ton of torque but it also has a turbo to help make up for thinner air at higher altitude. In another fun and informative TFLcar video we take the newest Diesel Beetle to our test road to see just how fast it sprints to 50 MPH. However this video has a surprise twist that might not expect. Roman and Nathan let another TFLcar teammate do all of the heavy lifting to show you just how easy or hard it is to get the best performance from a new car.





2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Review and Road Test
Check out more videos: http://vid.io/xqoB Upcoming reviews: http://vid.io/xqxl Best cars in 2014: http://vid.io/xqxe Redesigning retro is a herculean task. You need to change the vehicle enough to be worth the effort, meanwhile maintaining an iconic retro theme. If you don't change enough, shoppers won't see a reason to trade in their old flashback for the new time capsule. Change it too much and you're left with a caricature. The task is so daunting that few even attempt it. (Just look at the one-hit-wonders: PT Cruiser, HHR, SSR and Thunderbird.)VW on the other hand is different. After all they continued to build and sell the same Beetle with minor tweaks for 65 years straight. If anyone can tweak retro and convince people they need it, it's VW. Sure enough, 2012 was the best Beetle sales year since 1973. As a chaser to VW's revived retro-mojo, the Beetle is now offered sans-top and VW tossed us the keys to a brown-on-brown model for a week so we could get our 70s on. Can you dig it? This Beetle, like the old "New Beetle," sells on nostalgia and cutesy-bubbly good looks. In fact, the first words anyone utters upon seeing a Beetle are: "aww, its cute." See the problem? How many guys buy "cute" cars? Recognizing the problem, VW set out to "butch things up" with the second generation FWD Beetle. The bubbly-fenders, round headlamps and "smiling" hood lines haven't left but they have been joined by VW's corporate "Gillette" grille, sharper corners and more "masculine" tail lamps. (Or so I'm told.) The redesign also adds an incredible 3.5 inches to the Bug's width and 5 inches to the length. The extra length means the Bug's side profile is no longer semi-circular, something of a loss for retro fans. The wider stance and crisper creases do make Herbie look meaner, but the ginormous fenders make him look fatter as well. Sorry '70s fans, our chocolate brown Bug didn't come with a built-in CB radio. Burn! Instead shoppers will need to get hip with the 21st century, VW style. Base drop-tops get an AM/FM radio, single slot CD player, Bluetooth speaker phone/audio streaming and VW's USB/iDevice interface (MDI). Working your way up the ladder, the next stop is the touchscreen audio system which adds HD Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and am MP3 compatible CD reader (why is there no 1990s edition?). You won't find a air-cooled engine in this Beetle, this isn't the '50s. Base Beetles (and the '50s and '70s edition models) use VW's refreshed 2.5L inline 5-cylinder engine which gets a 20 HP bump to 170 at 5,700RPM while torque creeps up to 177 lb-ft at 4,250 RPM. VW mates the 5-banger to a 5-speed manual and for an extra $1,100 you can opt for the 6-speed automatic. If you need more shove, you can opt for VW's ubiquitous 2.0L turbo, good for 200 ponies and 207 lb-ft of twist. A first for America (as far as I know), VW's topless cruiser can now be had in oil-burning form with the same 140 HP 2.0L TDI powerplant as the Jetta. Both 2.0L mills are mated to VW's slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission or for $1,100, VW's latest 6-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission. How well the Beetle accelerates and handles is unlikely to matter to prospective convertible shoppers. I'm not kidding. There isn't a drop top I can think of that has better performance metrics than its hard-top donor car, that's just the nature of the beast. Convertibles are all about open air motoring and style, something thee Beetle, despite all of its flaws, still has in spades. VW's infotainment options feel like they are stuck in 1990, the lack of power front seats and automatic climate control irk me to no end, and the 2.0L engine needs a testosterone injection, yet the Beetle's topless charm is enough for me to overlook its flaws. There is only one problem: Herbie's still cute. Go figure. Music by Kevin MacLeod





Stuck fährt das neue Beetle Cabrio
Zum Fahrbericht: http://motorzeitung.de/news.php?newsid=148457 Rennfahrerlegende trifft Auto-Ikone: Die Gelegenheit, das neue Beetle Cabrio über die Straßen Malibus zu bewegen, ließ sich Hans-Joachim Stuck nicht entgehen. Und der Profi ist begeistert: „Eine Legende wurde neu erfunden", bringt er es kurz und knapp auf den Punkt. Zweifellos ist das sonnige Kalifornien das perfekte Jagdrevier für ein solches Fahrzeug. Aber auch wenn die Sonne einmal nicht scheint, wird aus dem offenen Beetle in 9,5 Sekunden ein vollwertiges Coupé. „Da zischt nichts, da bläst nichts", ist Stuck begeistert, ebenso wie von der Motorisierung, vor allem von dem besonders sauberen Clean-Diesel und dem Zweiliter-turbo in Kombination mit dem DSG. Hier geht die Post richtig ab.





Reviewed: 2013 VW Beetle TDI, Having Your Cake And Eating Too
A little over a year ago we had the VW Beetle in for a week of testing, it was the 2.5L 5 cylinder with an automatic. We never published a review on it, because we flat out didn't like it, though it was for personal reasons more than anything else. It felt like a pure nostalgia play, and it wasn't enjoyable to drive. When our VW rep called and asked if we wanted to try the Beetle with the TDI Clean Diesel, we said, "sure, why not". We wondered if Volkswagen's terrific TDI engine could be a saving grace. Turns out it absolutely transformed the car! This TDI Beetle with a manual was not only a hoot to drive, it returned 47-48mpg on the highway at 80mph! Sit back and have a look as Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive have a go with the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI.





2013 Beetle Convertible Press Release - LA Auto Show
Los Angeles, Calif. - The latest Beetle has been an instant success for Volkswagen since it went on sale in September 2011 as a 2012 model. And that success will continue with the introduction of the Beetle Convertible, the sportiest and most dynamic version of the iconic softtop seen so far. Ever since the type 15 Convertible from 1949, the Beetle has been one of the most popular open-top cars built. More than 330,000 examples of the first Beetle Convertible were manufactured over a 32-year span, while another 234,619 New Beetle Convertibles were produced in an eight-year period. The New Beetle Convertible was not a straight copy of the original, but a reinterpretation and development of it. And that's the case with the third-generation Beetle Convertible. Klaus Bischoff, Head Designer, Volkswagen Brand says: "Retro is not our thing: we are always looking forward. Volkswagen has reinterpreted the Beetle Convertible's timeless design with a sportier and more dynamic silhouette, just as it did with the Beetle Coupe. The car is substantially wider, has a longer hood, and has a more upright windshield that sits further back than before. The standard rear spoiler reinforces the car's sporty look."
