Volkswagen went way back to the drawing board with its reimagining of the current Beetle. The Beetle draws its inspiration from the original Beetle that was made from 1938 through the 1970s. The modern Beetle is almost certainly better in every way -- it features a lower, flatter roofline and a more aggressive stance. The engine is now up front, reflecting modern car design. Overall dimensions have grown, which translates to more interior room for passengers. Those passengers get a combination of retro simplicity in the gauge layout, elegance in the quality of cabin materials, and great technology features.
The Beetle comes standard with one engine and transmission combination. All models utilize a 174-horsepower, 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine driving the front wheels through a standard 6-speed automatic. The Beetle is offered in S, Coast, Dune SE and S "style and comfort" trim levels.
The Beetle shares its underpinnings with the Jetta, which includes front struts and a rear multi-link setup. Steering will feel very familiar to those who have driven previous modern Beetles, though the driving experience has changed significantly, thanks to the revised A-pillar angle and accordingly, the abbreviated dashboard, bringing the driver closer to the action.
A convertible version gets a power-folding fabric top. The top folds in 9.5 seconds and will operate at vehicle speeds up to 30 mph. Convertibles feature the same engine and transmission lineups as the coupe, and the modest weight increase barely hinders performance.
Base S trims come nicely equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and automatic headlights. Inside there's an auto-dimming mirror, cloth seats with front lumbar support, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob and parking brake, a 50/50 split-fold rear seat, and a five-inch MIB II touchscreen radio with USB. The SE trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, VW Car-Net App-Connect, and a 6.3-inch touchscreen. Finally SEL trims feature 18-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, navigation, a powered panoramic sunroof, and a blind-spot warning system.
Originally a special model for 2016, the Beetle Dune trim is now a regular part of the lineup. It features the 1.8T engine, special exterior paint and seating surfaces, parking assist, and much of the rest of the SE standard features, along with lifted suspension.
Safety comes standard as well in all 2018 Beetles, with anti-lock brakes, dual front airbags and combined curtain and side front seat airbags.
Practical And Spacious Interior
Sporty Turbo Performance
Plenty Of In-cabin Entertainment Options
The Beetle returns for 2018 with a fairly short list of changes. The most exciting update being the new more powerful and efficient 2.0L turbocharged engine that is available across the lineup. Also added this year is the Coast trim level that features a unique Deep Sea Teal paint job, ?heritage' alloy wheels, plaid seats and a surfboard-inspired wood dash. Volkswagen's warranty now lasts six years or 72,000 miles and the Beetle-R line has been discontinued.
With an aggressive design, spacious interior, and two refined and efficient engines, the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle offers a fresh alternative for buyers shopping around for a cool compact. With regards to features, performance and price, the Beetle holds its own against the likes of the MINI Cooper and FIAT 500, with a lower price than the MINI and more practical interior than the FIAT.
