‘The People’s Car’ Fun Choice for Urban Travel

If you were in your 20s in the 1960s, chances are you either were someone with a flower in your hair or you knew someone who wore a macramé vest over a tie-dyed shirt and smelled of incense. Chances also are that one of the people in your group drove a cute little VW Beetle, adorned with peace symbols and “make love, not war” bumper stickers. As a simple car designed for people who needed some reliable transportation on a budget, the Beetle has evolved over the years. You still see some adorned with flower stickers, but the 2018 VW Beetle is a far cry from what you drove in the 60s. With a peppy turbo engine, both heating AND air conditioning and the modern technology that today’s drivers crave, chances are you’ll go wild when you look over the new VW Beetle inventory at Chapman VW Tucson.

Same General Shape with Modern Design

The 2018 VW Beetle is generally the same shape as that one you remember from your youth, but modern design touches such as a rear spoiler, large alloy wheels, sport style bumpers and Bi-Xenon headlights bring the little Bug into the 21st Century. The interior pays homage to the vehicle’s lineage, with retro gauges that use modern technology to provide the essential vehicle information you need. A vintage glovebox design is another reminder of days gone by, but a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, available V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces and customizable ambient lighting are all modern features that bring the Beetle up-to-date.

New 2.0L Engine Provides More Pep

For 2018, the VW engineers rolled out a new 2.0L turbocharged engine that would run laps around your old 1960s Beetle. With 174 horsepower and 184 pounds of torque, you’ll have no problem accelerating past trucks or merging onto a crowded freeway. The engine is not only powerful and fun, but it delivers 33 mpg on the highway. The only reason to stop on a road trip will be for a bathroom break or to pick up more incense.

Power to the People First Warranty

Another good reason to consider the VW Beetle as your next vehicle is the new People First Warranty that offers bumper-to-bumper coverage for 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. That’s double the coverage of most manufacturers, showing Volkswagen has the confidence in the materials and craftsmanship of its entire lineup. Take some time to see what you’ve missed in the transformation of the VW Beetle by taking a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson today.
