Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible Overview

Industry News

The 2010 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible is VW's recent incarnation of previous years' designs. The Convertible is based on one engine, a 2.5-liter, 150-horsepower five-cylinder that generates its maximum horsepower at 5,000 rpm, creating a relatively narrow optimum power band. FWD is available either with a standard 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic based on Porsche's tiptronic technology with a manual override mode.

Since its 2008 changes, the New Beetle Convertible has largely remained unchanged. Some of the updates included renaming two trim levels, and upgraded premium sounds system with Sirius satellite radio, leather-wrapped surfaces for the handbrake, shift knob, and steering wheel. A tire pressure monitoring system is now standard, and new alloy wheels are also on each car level.
