The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5L 70’s Edition Convertible, other than carrying the name tag of being a Beetle, has nothing much appealing or satisfactory in it. If a buyer would approach this car, then that is definitely not because of the features of the car but because of its name. There is nothing much appealing in the beetle that can justify it as a car of the new generation as right from the internal features to the sitting comfort ability; the car lacks quality and satisfaction.
The peak up power of the car is poor and is quite slower to name as a beetle. Although the convertible design of the car is an attraction about it but at the same time, the annoying factor coming paired with the convertible top is the noise of the wind. The noise is so much so that it even disturbs the passengers sitting within the car. Advancements too lacked a bit in it as there is no USB port in the car for the driver to use any USB device.
The look of the Volkswagen Beetle gets weaken by the 18 inch wheels of the car as these makes the whole look quite cartoonish. Further, featuring 170 hp @ 5,700 rpm and 177 lb-ft @ 4,250 rpm, this Beetle is not fast. It has a fuel capacity of 2.5L and perhaps, for being a convertible design of the 70’s edition, the maker did not think much about enhancements of the technologies in it. The speed is fine but cannot be rated as a quick beetle for sure. However, in contrast to all such shortcomings, pricing the Beetle at $29,390 is quite surprising and unreasonable on some grounds.
