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."

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Review and Road Test
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

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 test dirve. 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 Beetle. I refueld only twice during the entire trip. The pros: - Outside appearance, still close to the Beetle spirit. - Fuel economy. - functional dashboard The cons: - The inside looks like any other car now; - No flower pot/vase; - The trunk opening is tedious. More information about the Beetle (or new new Beetle) and the official new Beetle is available at: http://www.lezebre.eu/car/volkswagen/photo%20gallery%20volkswagen%20beetle. htm

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 70's Edition Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/volkswagen/beetle/?id=32972 Believe it or not the Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet dates all the way back to the late 1940's. And over that span Volkswagen has sold millions of these cars. The Beetle went through a redesign for the 2011 model year and the current edition Beetle Convertible is available in a number of different trims with varying equipment and engine types. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible reviewed here is the 70's edition which comes with retro-style 18-inch wheels, a Fender premium stereo system, and other aesthetic touches. The base model Volkswagen Beetle Convertible starts at $24,995 with the 70's Edition costing $28,595. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet is the most affordable 4 seat convertible on the market here in the U.S. There may be cheaper cars on the market but those are not true convertibles where the entire top retracts. This Beetle is iconic, attractive, stylish, and affordable with the starting price of under $25k. Volkswagen has been making the Beetle Convertible since 1949 and they know a thing or two about making fun and attractive convertibles. The engine that powers the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 70's Edition is a 2.5 liter 5-cylinder that makes 170 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is pretty good at 21 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. When you want a fun and practical convertible the Beetle Cabriolet is a great choice. The cloth convertible top on the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle 70's Edition is one of the best in the industry. Not only did VW make it lighter and quieter, they also added a motor that allows you to work the top at speeds nearing 30 MPH. The best part is it only takes 9.5 seconds to open or close. The interior of the Beetle Convertible is very roomy, practical, and modern. This redesigned model is lower, wider, and more sporty. The result is that more men are buying Beetle's now than ever before. Volkswagen has something for everyone. You can get the Beetle Convertible with upgraded technology packages, upgraded sound packages, bigger and better engines, and of course the 60's and 70's Edition. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle is the most affordable and fun convertible cars you can buy in America.
