Everyone knows the Volkswagen Beetle is a stylish option that turns head wherever it goes, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be even better looking. In the 2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible in Morris County NJ, residents in the area can enjoy the breeze of the shoreline in top-down style that looks just as good as it feels to drive. A power-folding top makes it quick and easy to lower the soft-top, which comes in either a black or beige top. Other stylistic elements include a black grille, rear spoiler, running boards with chrome accents and the rear logo-integrated hatch handle. In the cabin shoppers are pleased to find a leather-wrapped shift knob with chrome accents, well-fitted quality materials, exterior color-matched dashboard and interior trim, V-Tex leatherette upholstery and customizable interior ambient lighting.
There’s no denying the 2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is an attractive choice, but that doesn’t mean it’s all fashion without function. Under the hood it features the same 1.8-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that makes the standard Beetle so exciting to drive. 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque give plenty of responsive power to this cruiser, though an R-Line trim option adds the even sportier 2.0-liter engine for 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The TDI Clean Diesel sacrifices horsepower for torque, returning 150 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. Diesel fans won’t see it as a sacrifice though, as this trim bumps the fuel economy up to a 30 city and 40 highway mpg rating.
If there’s one thing Volkswagen enthusiasts expect from the Beetle, it’s a variety of options. For the 2015 model year the Volkswagen Beetle is available in the 1.8T, Classic, R-Line and TDI Clean Diesel trims, the differences mainly coming down to engine options and stylistic choices. The 1.8T and TDI differ at the engine, while the R-Line is both sportier under the hood and features special R-Line details to give it a more aggressive aesthetic. The Classic appeals to those who love the Beetle for its retro-inspiration, providing retro-details from the 17-inch Heritage wheels through to the Classic Checker seating surfaces to pull strongly at our sense of nostalgia.
Standard features in the 2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible include a rear spoiler, power-folding soft top, 17” Turbine wheels, Bluetooth with audio, a multi-function steering wheel, a CD player sound system, VW Car-Net connected features, 8-speakers, customizable interior lighting and V-Tex leatherette upholstery in the base 1.8T.
