OverviewVolkswagen Beetle

Contributing to the newest Beetle's more masculine stance is a body that's longer, lower and wider than the previous generation. Inside, the friendly flower vase and distant windshield (which resulted in a massive dash top) have been replaced by a more vertical windshield and a color-keyed dash that's more handsome than cute. The increased dimensions also give this Beetle a roomier interior, especially in the backseat. Discover the ins and outs on used Volkswagen Beetles, available now in Carvana's inventory.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES

Impressive Performance For A Compact

The Volkswagen Beetle has come a long way over the past several decades, namely in the way of performance, where the present-day Beetle asserts itself admirably. The 1.8T model is powered by a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 170 horsepower and sprinted from 0 to 60 in 7.6 seconds, a quicker than average time for this class. Meanwhile, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder powertrain on the Beetle R-Line model is even more robust, producing 210 horsepower.

Excellent Crash Test Scores

In government crash tests, the Beetle earned five out of five stars for overall and side crash protection. Additionally, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Beetle its highest rating of Good in moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact, roof-strength, and whiplash protection tests.

Touchscreen Interface Available On 2016 Models

Every 2016 version of the Beetle comes with a new touchscreen interface that is a notable step up from previous systems offered on older versions of the vehicle. The base Wolfsburg Edition comes with a 5-inch touchscreen, while SE trim expands its screen to 6.3 inches.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

Steering, Handling

While the Beetle shares many positive similarities with Volkswagen relatives like the Golf GTI and Jetta GLI, it also shares some of their drawbacks. Most notably, the Beetle offers same kind of disappointing driving experience found in the Jetta, which has been criticised for dull handling and steering mechanics.

Rear Visibility

Whether you're in the coupe or convertible version of the Beetle, you'll be forced to deal with somewhat of an obstructed view when trying to see out the vehicle's rear. This is particularly true for the Beetle convertible, whose retracted soft top rests on top of the rear deck lid, restricting driver visibility.

Cargo Space

Technically speaking, the Volkswagen Beetle offers 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space. However, that number is a bit misleading, as much of that extra space comes as a result of the additional vertical space made thanks to the hatchback.
