VW Beetle

Volkswagen calls the Beetle “a classic that keeps up with the times,” and this is true in more ways than one. Now in the third generation of its current run, this compact icon is better than ever. Check out the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle in our overview below.

Highlights of the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle

Design

Volkswagen may have upgraded both the exterior and interior of the new VW Beetle, but they’ve left behind a few vintage details to give it that iconic look and feel. Some of these details include quilted seats, Beetle nameplates, brushed steel pedals, retro-modern gauges, and an available Käferfach glovebox.

A few modern touches include the available ambient lighting and the power tilting/sliding panoramic moonroof.

Tech

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle comes with a helpful bit of technology coined VW Car-Net®, which provides the owner with traffic updates, sports details and scores, and weather. It can also let you know where you’ve parked, whether or not you locked your doors, and if you’ve left your sunroof open. In fact, if your sunroof is open and there is rain in the forecast, the app will send you a notification to close it.

Safety

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle is built with a safety cage (and seven other stability-enhancing systems) that has front and rear crumple zones. That means impact energy is deflected from passenger areas. An Intelligent Crash Response System engages in the case of an accident, deploying airbags, turning off the fuel pump, unlocking doors, and activating hazard lights.

An impact also activates the Post Collision Braking System, which engages the brakes to reduce the chance that you’ll hit another vehicle or slide off the road.

For everyday driving without incident, there is the Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution to help ensure proper braking in times when you must slam hard on the brakes. Stability control will also engage to adjust your throttle and help to correct the wheels.

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle also makes it easier to avoid accidents with available Blind Spot Monitoring, Park Distance Control, and Rear Traffic Alert.
