Behind the Wheel: 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
Volkswagen has embraced the motto "more power, less flower," in the new 2013 Beetle Convertible. Launching it in sunny Los Angeles, the drop top lets you connect with your surroundings. With the top up, you're now in a cabin that's sporty and cleanly-styled. The new Beetle Convertible comes loaded with a variety of packages, ranging from the transmission to accessories. If you're cruising around with friends, the roomy backseat spots are "more comfortable than they look," according to Matthew Askari. This isn't a family car, or a utility vehicle, but it does have 7.1 cubic feet of cargo space, besting the Mini Cooper. The new Beetle has different engine options to choose from, ranging from the entry-level 2.5-liter that give a respectable 170 horsepower. This car is capable of more than just fun and playfulness. It grips curves, even if it isn't exceptionally fast. But with the different options, Volkswagen is giving the buyer the chance to get what they want out of their 2013 Beetle Convertible.
