Loading Comparison...


The modern version of the classic Beetle of the 1950s to 1970s has been around for two decades now, revised in appearance for the 2012 model year, with a lower roofline. Only a 6-speed automatic transmission is available for 2017; manual gearboxes are gone. Volkswagen’s post-collision braking system is newly standard.

Bumpers have been modified for the 2017 model year. A new limited-production #PinkBeetle trim level is offered.

Beetles come in two body styles: hatchback coupe and convertible, each flaunting a uniquely rakish, low-roofed profile. For 2017, the lineup has shrunk slightly, but seven trim levels are offered.

In base S, SE, SEL, Classic, Dune, and new #PinkBeetle models, a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine makes 170 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque. Each Beetle uses a 6-speed automatic transmission.

For a modestly sportier experience, the R-Line SEL holds a 2.0-liter turbo four that develops 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet, mating with a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Curiously, a hashtag symbol precedes the new model’s name: #PinkBeetle. Only 2,000 are to be manufactured, inspired by a California dealer who painted some Beetles pink. Officially named Fresh Fuchsia Metallic, its paint isn’t truly pink.

Dune editions are slightly wider and taller, brandishing side sills, black cladding and other distinct styling touches, atop 18-inch wheels.

Despite the contemporary Beetle’s vintage design cues and perky demeanor, beneath the surface it’s a conventional hatchback, based upon the prior-generation Golf model. All Beetles have front-wheel drive.

Visibility is good all around. Big mirrors provide helpful sight lines when driving in traffic. As expected, rearward views from the driver’s seat of a top-up convertible are more restricted.

Advanced safety features are in short supply, lacking collision-avoidance technology. A rearview camera is newly standard on all Beetles. So is automatic emergency braking, which applies brakes when detecting an imminent collision. SEL trim includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

In crash-testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a Beetle coupe scored five stars overall, but four stars for frontal impact and rollover protection (a calculated score, not an actual test). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the coupe Good ratings in all tests, except for Marginal in the small-overlap frontal collision.


Beetle S coupe ($19,995) or convertible ($24,725) comes with 1.8-liter engine, cloth seating surfaces, rearview camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler, automatic headlights, auto-dimming mirror, 50/50 split-folding rear seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, eight-speaker audio, Bluetooth, and 5.0-inch touchscreen. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $820 destination charge.)

Beetle Classic coupe ($20,475) or convertible ($24,995) get heated front seats, cloth/leatherette seating surfaces, satellite radio, a 6.3-inch touchscreen, rear spoiler, VW Car-Net apps, and navigation.

Beetle #PinkBeetle coupe ($21,890) or convertible ($26,795) feature fuchsia/pink highlights with pink/black cloth upholstery.

Beetle 1.8T SE coupe ($22,450) or convertible ($26,750) come with 17-inch wheels, heated front seats, leatherette seating surfaces, pushbutton start, 6.3-inch touchscreen with VW’s Car-Net vehicle services apps, and satellite radio.

Beetle Dune coupe ($23,995) or convertible ($29,395) have special bumpers, foglamps, a sunroof, rear spoiler, side sills, black cladding, cloth/leatherette seating surfaces, 18-inch wheels, and parking sensors.

Beetle 1.8T SEL coupe ($25,975) or convertible ($30,275) feature 18-inch wheels, navigation, parking sensors, Fender audio, VW Car-Net Guide/Inform, automatic climate control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a sunroof (coupe).

Beetle R-Line 2.0T SEL coupe ($32,550) holds the 2.0-liter engine and dual-clutch automatic, plus specific sport-tuned suspension, bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, Fender audio, and 20-inch wheels.


Few cars look as distinctive as the Beetle, marketed in its current form since 2012. At that time, a roofline that suggests the old Porsche 356 edged aside the previous (1998-2011) generation’s taller, rounded roof.

Cleanly simple body lines have helped the Beetle age surprisingly well. Styling touches include flat wheel arches and subtle fender flares. SEL models get Circle alloy wheels that appear to hold chrome hubcaps.

When its power-folding fabric top is up, the convertible is comparatively quiet. At up to 31 mph, the convertible’s roof can be raised in 11 seconds and lowered in 9.5 seconds. A detachable wind guard may be installed above the back seats.


Both Beetle body styles are spacious and comfortable for as many as four occupants, though a pair of adults in back might not be thrilled. Supportive front seats promise ample head, hip, and leg room.

Even in the better-bolstered R-Line, seats are satisfying for long journeys. Seat-adjustment controls are easy to access.

Retro-themed interiors, though practical and simple, exude a rather low-budget aura. In some models, the upright dashboard features bold colors. Though attractive, making use of modern digital systems, the dashboard contains sizable hard plastic surfaces.

The styling of the Beetle does not result in the most space-efficient design. The low roofline can impede head space, while a tight back seat isn’t so easy to climb into. Rear seats are narrower than those up front, and considerably shorter. With front seats normally positioned, rear leg space nearly disappears.

Long doors can be a hindrance in perpendicular parking spots. Cargo space is limited in convertibles, but trunk volume in the hatchback coupe totals an expansive 15.4 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

Ride and handling are strong points, helped by precise, controlled steering. Beetles promise a sense of all-around refinement, along with a compliant ride. Suspensions effectively absorb pavement flaws. Ride comfort leans toward the soft side.

Cornering smartly, Beetles suffer minimal body roll even when driven energetically. Even in R-Line form, though, they aren’t as sporty in nature as their appearance and reputation might suggest.

Not only are convertibles a bit heavier, they’re slightly less rigid. Yet, the driving experience differs little between body styles unless the fabric top is lowered.

Volkswagen’s smooth 1.8-liter engine yields solid acceleration, working well with the automatic transmission. With 40 more horsepower emanating from its 2.0-liter four, the R-Line is livelier, better able to pass confidently. The dual-clutch transmission shifts promptly, without annoying clunks.

Noise is hardly absent. Wind, engine, and road sounds blend into a dreary roar, particularly in R-Line models.

Although the Beetle Dune sits slightly higher than its mates, it’s still quite low. Don’t expect off-road potential.

Reasonably fuel-efficient but not quite thrifty, most Beetles are EPA-rated at 24/33 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. Convertibles and coupes get the same estimates. Dune models are rated at 24/31/27 mpg, while the R-Line is EPA-rated at 23/29 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined.


Beetles present decent value, but are short on high-tech features – which sounds like a description of the original. Even base (S) trim is well-equipped. Volkswagen offers only a handful of option packages. Certain compromises, including the snug back seat, are inevitable in vehicles that stress style over practicality.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
