Take the Top Down on the VW Beetle Convertible
Are you looking for a vehicle to drive around Arlington, Texas, that’s cool-looking, fun, comfortable, and high-tech? If so, look no further than the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible. This compact car has the perfect mix of features and is well-known for being awesome to drive. If you can see yourself riding around Arlington in this beauty, here are some more reasons to go for it.
The 2016 Beetle Convertible remains one of the most stylish cars on the market thanks to its classic VW design and modern upgrades.
Although sometimes thought of as a feminine car, the Beetle is masculine in many ways. For one, it features a sleek and sporty frame, as well as a flat roof and upright windshield. It also features a rear spoiler, circular bi-xenon headlights, and 19-inch circular wheels.
Speaking of circles, if you pay close attention to the body styling, you may notice a rounded-shape theme. Pretty cool, right? It’s meant to make the car’s design simple, clean, and flowing.
The Beetle Convertible is available with two different engine options that offer a mix of fun and efficiency. The base engine, a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, produces 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque for a fast ride with good fuel efficiency. If you need more power and don’t mind sacrificing some fuel economy, you can step up to the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which produces 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. This extra power will give you even faster acceleration, better passing ability, and a sportier ride so you can blast down Arlington’s roads with no problem.
Once you’re inside, the interior is spacious and comfortable with plenty of leg, head, and hip room for front-seat occupants. Wondering how comfortable the seats are? Very. In fact, they’re so well-designed that you should have no problem running errands, commuting to work, or taking road trips to Dallas and Forth Worth. Other interior comforts include push-button start, customizable ambient lighting, and of course, a power-folding soft top.
When it comes to trunk space, the Beetle convertible offers 15.4 cubic feet of it — an ample amount for a car its size. You’ll also notice a bevy of small storage areas throughout the vehicle, such as a bin on the dash, a bin near the shifter, a bin near the armrest, a glovebox, and a cool second glovebox, called a “kaeferfach.”
The Beetle Convertible is loaded with many high-tech features. Some favorites include:
• VW Car-Net App-Connect: A system that can link compatible smartphones and apps to the touchscreen display inside the car.
• VW Car-Net Connected: A system that allows users to control the car, i.e. unlocking doors, with their smartphones.
• Composition media touchscreen: A 6.33-inch color display that’s equipped with sensors and voice-control technology.
If you want a car that looks good, performs well, keeps you comfortable, and offers a range of high-tech features, the 2016 VW Beetle is perfect. So, what are you waiting for? Go out and try it for yourself!
