Available as a coupe or convertible, the turbocharged 2018 Volkswagen Beetle is all about affordable fun. With a new more powerful and fuel-efficient engine, along with its iconic and timeless shape, the new VW Beetle perfectly blends a retro vibe with modern style, safety and features. The desirable combination makes it a standout against a small pack of rivals including the Mini Cooper and the Fiat 500.
New Features and Revisions
For 2018, every new Volkswagen Beetle gets a larger and more powerful 174-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that also improves the VW’s fuel economy. Also new is the Coast trim level, which gets a surfboard-inspired wood-look dash pad, and a longer warranty that covers every new Volkswagen for six years or 72,000 miles. The Beetle R-Line has been discontinued.
