The Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.6 litre is our choice of the range. It has most of the power of the 2 litre car without the added weight and costs. In comparison, the 1.8T seems extravigant for a car that doesn’t focus on sporty performance.
It’s not the greatest car to drive but then nobody buys a VW Beetle Cabriolet to go racing. That’s only in the movies. In reality it’s a fun, stylish car with a neat power hood and room for four adults. The wind won’t bother them, or you, even at motorway speeds and reliability is as you would expect from Volkswagen. Prices were temptingly low for the lower powered cars, just leave the fast driving to Herbie. A Final Edition Beetle was launched at the beginning of 2010 with an all new car to follow it in 2013.
