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
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.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI Cabriolet Test Drive & Convertible Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/beetle/2013/ In 2011 Volkswagen
introduced a newly redesigned and updated Beetle model for the 2012 model
year. Now the Volkswagen Beetle family just got a whole lot bigger with the
addition of a cabriolet (convertible) model with a ton of different trims
and 3 engine offerings. The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible has a base
price of $24,995.
Volkswagen first introduced the cabriolet or convertible to the world way
back in 1949. This is obviously a very iconic vehicle. When you are
shopping for convertibles under $30k you have a few options including the:
FIAT 500c, MINI Cooper Convertible, Ford Mustang Convertible, and Chevrolet
Convertible. But when it comes to iconic, comfortable, affordable, and
economical vehicles the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible really sets
The base engine on the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet is a tried and true
2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine producing 170 horsepower. That's the
engine you are going to have to pick if you want to stay below the $25k
price point. There is also a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that is the same engine
found in the Volkswagen GTI. This turbo
monster produces 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of
torque with lots of zip and lots of fun. But it's the 2.0 liter TDI engine
that sets this car apart from the rest of the competition. The TDI motor
produces 140 horsepower and 236 lb-ft. of
torque while getting 41 MPG. There are 2 transmissions available: a 6-speed
automatic or a 6-speed manual.
From a driving perspective the base model and the TDI pretty much drive the
same because they have the same suspension. The turbo model does have a sport suspension so it
will give you a bit more dynamic driving experience. But make no mistake
about it; this 2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI Convertible has a ton of torque
and is a lot of fun.
