Welcome to AutosBevy Beetle fans! The 2014 Beetle Volkswagen 1.8T is out and has begun reaching dealers across the country. Though nothing very promising may be in the store this year when it comes to looks, there is certainly a worth news lying under the hood of the new Beetle. This year the Beetle has come out with a bigger bang, offering unsurpassed engine performance with higher economic feasibility.
Let me break to you the price of this new car and give you a tiny dose of its properties!
The Beetle 1.8T has an attractive base price of $20,295 for a five-speed manual transmission and $21,395 for six-speed automatic transmission. Whereas, the Beetle 1.8T Convertible comes equipped with only six-speed automatic transmission and has a base price of $25,170. These prices are no different than last year’s model, despite the fact that this year the Beetle boasts an enhanced and superior engine. This definitely is golden package, taken the luxurious features this car supports.
Beetle 1.8T has an alluring cabin and interior design. It is roomy from inside with ample space in the cabin, legroom and the trunk. If you are tall like me, you will be happy with the plentiful head space, while other passengers will be no less than glad with the comfortable seats. The car also offers an optional navigation system which is highly user-friendly however; the smallness of its screen is a tiny drawback of this system.
The Volkswagen Beetle is not behind when it comes to safety and has received a full five on five stars in government crash tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also rated it ‘Good’ on its safety, strengthening Beetle’s position as a safe car. The most prominent safety features include front side airbags, antilock disc brakes, and traction and stability control.
Volkswagen believes that by the end of this year, it will already have sold around 90 per cent of its 2014 models.
