About the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle

The 2016 Volkswagen Beetle truly sits in a class of its own. A compact car that perfectly blends retro lines with more contemporary elements to create a bold and utterly intriguing piece of engineering.

In addition to being available in a more traditional variant, the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle is also offered as a convertible. Moreover, a special Dune edition was also released in 2016. In any cases, the German ladybug is powered by a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The latter is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, although a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission is also on the menu.

Bold, versatile and impressively fun to drive, the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle remains an unforgettable icon.
