2016 Volkswagen Beetle R-Line Morris County NJ
One of the many reasons Volkswagen enthusiasts continue to be drawn to the Beetle is the fact that it has such iconic styling. Though it’s been adjusted to keep up with modern appeal, it still retains much of the design that made it popular when it was first released. Basically, it continues to stand apart as one of the most highly recognizable models on the road. For even more style and performance, the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle R-Line in Morris County NJ provides an aggressive appearance package.
At first glance, the differences between the Beetle R-Line and the standard Beetle 1.8T may seem subtle, but the R-Line receives unique front and rear bumpers to enhance its sportier style, putting a special focus on the shutter grille and halogen reflector lens foglights with corner illumination. Chrome accents in the running boards keep your attention when glancing at it from the side profile, while the rear spoiler, integrated VW hatch handle and 18-inch Twister alloy wheels complete the aesthetic.
Looks alone wouldn’t explain the price increase between the Beetle 1.8T and the R-Line options. Under the hood is the more potent 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder TSI engine that delivers an impressive 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, a full 40 horse and 23 pound-feet higher than the 1.8T.
From its round headlights to the overall arched profile of the Beetle, there’s no denying that it’s style is one of the reasons shoppers continue to fall in love with the model. The R-Line offers just a touch more, for those seeking motorsport-inspired design without going too far into the rally-car world.
The coupe-style model is only available in the SE and SEL trim levels, which naturally means you’ll only find models outfitted with the latest features from VW. Among them is the MIB II infotainment system with the 6.33-inch touchscreen and App-Connect features that bring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Why drivers love the 2016 VW Beetle R-Line
It isn’t enough to have a car that turns heads, though it won’t hurt your pride, but the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle R-Line is much more than just an attractive vehicle. It upgrades the powertrain over the standard Beetle with a 2.0-liter engine that delivers 210 horsepower. This is in comparison to 170 horsepower from the standard model. Not a bad upgrade at all. It also has better transmission options, coming standard with a six-speed manual instead of a five-speed, but it also has the optional six-speed dual-clutch DSG to really offer smooth acceleration.
With style and performance covered, the only things left to consider are the VW Beetle R-Line’s features. R-Line trims are available for both the coupe and the convertible, but the convertible has the S base trim that strips away some of the more impressive features, like VW Car-Net App-Connect. Standard features in the SE trim level, where the coupe starts, include automatic headlights, a rearview camera system, the 6.33-inch touchscreen with App-Connect, a dash-mounted performance gauge cluster and sport cloth seating.
