If you’re heading to the coast this summer for a yearly vacation, there are few better ways to get there than to drive a sporty VW Beetle Convertible. Now available for a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson, the Beetle convertible is affordable, sporty and a hoot on the highway. Imagine yourself driving up the coast with the top down and the wind in your hair while jealous minivan drivers wistfully watch and wish they were you.

Friendly Beetle Now Tech Savvy

While the friendly VW Beetle convertible still resembles the flower-power Bug of the 1960s, technology-wise this is an entirely different animal. With a power top that gently lowers the soft roof into its storage space, Bi-Xenon headlamps, modern gauges, and a 6-speed automatic transmission that lets you go into manual mode when you want to sow some wild oats, the new Beetle is a people’s car for the modern age. Powered by a 1.8L Turbo engine that has plenty of kick when you need it while still achieving 33 mpg on the highway, the Beetle Convertible has the zip to back up it’s sassy design. An infotainment system with VW Car-Net App-Connect lets you stream your favorite tunes, podcast or summer audio book while still maintaining connectivity with the outside world. Choose the premium 400-watt Fender Audio system and you’ll be the coolest cat on the beach, pumping out sounds to the beat of the crashing surf.

VW Engineers Didn’t Forget About Safety

Although the new VW Beetle Convertible is undoubtedly one of the coolest cars on the planet, the engineers didn’t forget to add an abundance of safety features. A rear-view camera pops out from under the VW badge on the back to help you avoid any unforeseen obstacles. Blind spot monitoring alerts you to objects in those areas that you often miss when changing lanes. VW’s Car-Net not only helps you find your Beetle in the massive parking lot at Disneyland, but also calls for help in the event of an emergency.

This is One Rigid Convertible

When it came to designing the new VW Beetle Convertible, the engineers took the rigidity up a couple of notches when compared to other soft-tops. Logically, convertibles are usually never as strong as hardtops for obvious reasons: hardtops have a solid roof with support structures helping to keep the two sides together. VW engineers sharpened their pencils and created a design with a protective safety cage in the Beetle Convertible, creating crash crumple zones while increasing the stability of the body. The net result is a safer convertible that helps protect the occupants during a crash. If it’s time for you to let your hair down and have a little fun, head to Chapman VW Tucson and take a test drive in the sport VW Beetle Convertible.
