Exterior Styling

The new 2017 Beetle offers quirky looks with a loud personality that is sure to get a lot of attention. Arguably one of the most easily recognized models on the road, the Volkswagen Beetle is even as fun to drive as it looks. The iconic look of the Beetle has truly been taken to the next level with its blend of retro and futuristic accents. This dueling dichotomy creates a fusion of refinement and excitement. The new front and rear bumpers are smartly designed with new modern touches, while the rear spoiler gives a sleeker edge to the appearance of this compact and sporty Volkswagen. The futuristic power sliding and tilting panoramic sunroof maximizes exposure and is one touch away from letting the sun brighten up the drive. The new 18-inch alloy wheels provide a proud stance and a unique 10-spoke design that is even more distinctive than the previous generation Beetle.

Interior Styling and Features

On the interior, the Beetle features distinctive retro-modern gauges, an intuitive multi-function steering wheel, customizable interior ambient lighting and an artfully-designed heritage-inspired glovebox. The interior ambient lighting can change colors to match the mood, while the leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel puts the infotainment system at the driver’s fingertips. The Fender Premium Audio System offers 400 watts of pulsating power to deliver crisp and clear concert-quality audio through the Beetles speakers, while the elegant leatherette seating surfaces are a sporty and stylish way to enhance every ride. Furthermore, with a kaleidoscope of color options, the new Beetle is more customizable than ever before.


Under the hood, the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle features a turbocharged 1.8-liter gas four-cylinder base engine that produces 170 horsepower. Moreover, for those who crave added performance, the Beetle R-Line is loaded with a turbocharged 2.0-liter gas four-cylinder engine that makes 210 horsepower. The responsive and sporty handling is greatly enhanced by the smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and a Sport Mode feature. This Tiptronic transmission gives drivers the ability to take full control by manually shifting the Beetle to amplify the driving experience. Because of its nimble size, the Beetle offers a uniquely energetic experience especially when corning or when driving over narrow and winding roads.


The Volkswagen Beetle is loaded with safety features that help prevent accidents from happening. The available Blind Spot Monitor feature is able to send alerts that you may miss, while driver assistance features like Rear Traffic Alert and Park Pilot add even more safety and convenience to every drive. Moreover, with seven stability-enhancing systems, the Intelligent Crash Response System and Volkswagen’s high-strength steel safety cage, this generation Beetle is the safest to date.
