VW convertible sporty and cute combined!

2018 Volkswagen Beetle

My VW convertible turbo performs like a sports car. It is fast, light and looks sporty. I haven't had any problems with it at all. It is super comfortable and roomier than it looks. When I have the top down it feels even roomier. I have taken a 450 mile road trip with 3 adults and a 9 year old recently, and we were surprisingly comfortable. My favorite features are the rear backup camera, heated seats, Bluetooth, and the convertible top. I love my car because the interior is gorgeous. I constantly receive several compliments while driving around. Most people ask if I have a special edition or is it a sport model. It is flashy without being pretentious. Best of all the price and the warranty combined made my VW a great value.

My 2018 VW Beetle convertible is the series Pink version. They only made a select number of these, and I just love it! The color is more of a mauve than a pink. Despite the fact that it's not a turbo-- it has get up and go! The convertible is very easy to engage and it's quick. The seats are comfortable and the trim is very nice. The backup camera is a great feature!

Compact and modern. Best car out there.

2018 Volkswagen Beetle

Sometimes the radio goes blank and it is good for only two people. The interior is a fake leather that looks like its real without worrying about wear and tear. Because of the shape of the trunk it is hard to fit thing in it. I love the look of the car. Easy to park. Keyless start is amazing. Seat warmers are the best. All black interior is a plus too.
