2012 Volkswagen Beetle picture review accessory

2008 Volkswagen Beetle Photo

The standard Beetle is still cool. It comes in an assortment of bright, happy colors. Its exterior and interior design details are fun and creative. It now offers OnStar telematics as an option. On the road, the Beetle is smooth and sophisticated and handles well. It's considered a safe car. Beetle earned top scores in the federal government's crash tests and comes with Volkswagen's excellent safety features. Just don't expect to see people looking, smiling and waving at you every time you come around a corner as much as they did when the New 2012 Volkswagen Beetle first hit the streets. The standard engine in the GL and GLS is a 2.0-liter inline-4 rated 115 horsepower. GLS 1.8T is powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged four rated 150 horsepower. With both engines, a five-speed manual transmission is standard. The coupe offers an optional four-speed automatic ($875), while the convertible offers a six-speed automatic with Tiptronic control ($1175). In the Turbo S model, the 1.8-liter turbo four is tuned to 180 horsepower. The only transmission available is a six-speed manual. To that end, we have included a link to 2012 Volkswagen Beetle performance parts and accessories on the right side of the page.

If the Volkswagen New Beetle is a smile on wheels, then the Beetle Convertible is an ear-to-ear grin, looking at once more whimsical, and more like its vintage ancestor, than the Beetle hardtop. Both are back for 2012, with new safety features, new colors, and new options. Plus, an even more modern and efficient diesel engine is available for the coupe. The New Beetle isn't just smart and stylish. Because it's a Volkswagen, it is refined. It combines German engineering and performance with exceptional fit and finish, and it represents a good value. As in other retro-mobiles, however, driver and passengers must make some concessions for style. New 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is available as a coupe or convertible, and with an assortment of gasoline and diesel-fueled four-cylinder engines. 

The 2012 Beetle is a 2-door, up to 5-passenger family coupe, or sports coupe. For 2012, the coupe is offered in GL, GLS, GLS 1.8T , and Turbo S trim. The convertible is offered in GL , GLS , and GLS 1.8T trim only. After all, the Beetle is now a familiar face in America. Standard safety equipment on all New Beetles includes driver and front passenger airbags, side-impact airbags mounted in the seatbacks, a safety-belt tensioning and load-limiting system, and rear-seat tether anchorage points (LATCH system) for securing a child safety seat. The side-impact airbags have been enhanced for 2012; Volkswagen says the New Beetle is one of the few small cars with side-impact bags designed to protect the driver's and front-seat passenger's head and thorax. Dual-stage frontal airbags will be phased in during the '04 model year. For 2012, New Beetles can be purchased with Volkswagen's Telematics emergency and concierge system. Other changes for the new year include restyled wheels and available xenon headlights. A CD player that reads MP3-formatted discs will be offered later in the model year.
