Drive The Iconic 2016 Volkswagen Beetle


The 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Coupe is an automotive icon. A visual calling card for the sixties, the car has retained its appeal all the way to today, offering modern drivers a stylish, high-performance vehicle that they can count on. The VW Beetle comes standard with a 170-hp 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Drivers looking for even more impressive performance can upgrade to a 210-hp 2.0T engine, with the option to add sport seats and a multi-function steering wheel with Tiptronic® paddle shifter for added fun. Inside, drivers can add an advanced 6.33-inch touchscreen sound/navigation system, as well as VW Car-Net® App-Connect™ for smartphones. Available features, including a rearview camera system and a blind spot monitor, offers added assistance to drivers.

The Volkswagen brand has long been known for its commitment to safety, and the Beetle is no exception. Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) automatically sense if a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and modulate the brake pressure in order to correct the issue, thereby allowing the vehicle to turn while braking. Stability control works automatically as well, sensing when vehicle handling limits have been exceeded and either reducing engine power or applying select brakes as necessary to help prevent drivers from losing control. Front-impact airbags and side impact airbags offer the driver and front passenger added peace of mind.

In addition to the Coupe, drivers who want to let their hair down can opt for the 2016 VW Beetle Convertible. Both models feature a rear spoiler for added style. Optional 19 inch Tornado alloy wheels, R-Line front and rear bumpers, and Bi-Xenon headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights allow drivers to customize their new Beetle even further.
