Wolfsburg / Nice, 11 February 2013 – Some special cars reflect the fundamental attitude of their owners – the new Beetle Cabriolet is such a car. Driving this Volkswagen shows that the people inside really enjoy a sporty design, colours and driving with the top down. Even ordering the new Beetle Cabriolet will be a cult act for most buyers – because many more options are available to express your individual taste than ever before: five standard equipment versions are available (“Beetle,” “Design,” “Design Exclusive,” “Sport” and “Sport Exclusive”) as well as three special models (“50’s Edition,” “60’s Edition” and “70’s Edition”). This range is supplemented by twelve finishes and two soft top colours, eleven different types of interior textile and leather trim, twelve rims, innumerable technical and visual features as well as efficient petrol and diesel engines with performance ranging from 77 kW / 105 PS to 147 kW / 200 PS. These are all turbocharged engines, available with optional six and seven-speed dual clutch gearboxes. Fuel economy range for these efficient, high torque, four-cylinder engines: 4.5 to 7.8 l/100 km.
