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."

The new VW Beetle is perfect for those seeking a retro cool soft top whilst
still enjoying a certain degree of practicality and everyday comfort. The
Coupe was introduced in 2012, with the cabriolet joining the range in 2013.
There's plenty of different specs to suit all tastes and budgets, but
thankfully this one that we are in today has head turning looks for the
right reasons and has managed to impress us at CarBuyer.
And that's because it really does look the part with its non threatening
smiley face and distinctive bulbous wheel arches. The small spoiler on the
rear plays up to its cheeky and playful side, too.
But first and foremost we are interested in its practical side. Despite not
having a huge amount of space -- which is to be expected from a car like
this -- the folding roof doesn't affect bootspace in any way thanks to the
fact it folds on the outside of the boot. Thanks to this, you will always
get this much room [point], no matter where the roof is.
And although quite cramped, these seats are brilliant for occasional use --
as opposed to having none at all.
The first thing I noticed when I got in this car was the combination of
tones, there's some tasteful shiny painted, colour coded, trim here, soft
touch materials, which enhance the overall quality and the retro theme we
saw on the outside is very much present in here too. There are six
equipment levels available however the mid-level Design provides everything
you really need including air-conditioning and DAB radio, while the options
list includes a touchscreen sat-nav and a upgraded Fender sound system. The
50s, 60s and 70s versions are a bit more expensive, but if you want retro
flair, those are the cars for you. Anyway, enough tech, let's get this roof
It can be operated of speeds up to 31mph so you can put the roof up and
down as much as the weather fluctuates on your journey.
Bringing me on to my next point, it isn't noticeably noisier to travel in
than the coupe thanks to the multi layered fabric hood that provides plenty
of sound insulation.
Bringing me on to my next point, there is hardly any wind buffeting with
the roof down, as long as you have installed the easy-to-fit wind deflector
thus allowing me to talk to you about how economical this car is.
As expected there are a number of different petrol and diesel engines to
choose from. However the most economical is the 1.6 Bluemotion Diesel
returning a claimed 62.8 miles to the gallon and emitting just 118g/km of
CO2. All can be teamed up with a manual or Automatic DSG gearbox, apart
from the one that we're in today - the 1.4 twincharged engine only comes in
manual and that returns 41.5 miles to the gallon and certainly has enough
pace to complement the comfortable ride.
And that does bring me on to the Beetle's downsides. While it drives much
better than the outgoing model, mainly due to the fact that it shares its
platform with the previous generation Golf and is just as much fun as the
Coupe due to extra bracing, it isn't quite as much fun as the practicality
smaller MINI Convertible. The biggest sour grape in the Beetle fruit bowl
though is the price. It's £2,000 more expensive than the MINI, and that's
quite a lot!
Well that pretty much sums up the new Beetle Convertible, it's an easy to
live with retro inspired cool soft top that turns heads for all the right

Volkswagen Beetle 2013 360 degrees walkaround the car, inside and test drive
This time a 360 degrees walkaround the car outside, inside walk through and
I have test driven this car for you during four days and 600 miles.
My version is the 5 cylinder 2.5 liter engine.
The drive is pleasant. The car is still a head turner. During the trip, a
friend of mine was driving a brand new Range Roger. We had to car pool
together and the choice was the Beetle, not the Range Rover or in the
I refueld only twice during the entire trip.
- Outside appearance, still close to the Beetle spirit.
- Fuel economy.
- functional dashboard
- The inside looks like any other car now;
- No flower pot/vase;
- The trunk opening is tedious.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
debuted today at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show but we got to drive it
before it broke cover along the ocean in California. The new Beetle
Convertible carries on a decades long tradition of topless motoring and
this newest Beetle plays on the VW Beetles reputation with three special
addition cars that include a 50's 60's and 70's theme. Check out this first
drive video review as we bring you the new car in all of its editions from
the sunny beaches of Southern California.
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.
