Volkswagen was proud to launch its latest addition to their long-lived legacy Beetle, the 2018 model. Apart from its classic and iconic looks, it has got many more feathers to attach and make it more lucrative than ever before.
Here are the features shared by the Ontario VW dealers that have been specially added to the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle.
The Beetle wears a retro design that has a deep impact on its buyers. But the new style added to it is a symbol of modern aesthetic sense that has reportedly altered the round and sharp edges. Now to upgrade the car performance from its past models, the 2018 Beetle is now given a 2 L turbo four engine, that can deliver a 174 horsepower with 184 lb-ft of torque. This is a change that has made the vehicle exceptionally sturdy without putting on any extra weight and giving the body a better balancing power.
Improved Fuel Efficiency
The handling too got better with a more precise way of power distribution. The new engine and frame have improved the fuel economy of the vehicle. It can now give a 26 MPG in the city, and a whopping 33 MPG on the highways.
Inside the 2018 Beetle, you are now more comfortable with a roomier interior, that got stretched from its earlier versions to maximize the space in the cabin. Every seat is now provided with enough leg room and it brings in more breathing space for all the passengers at a time. The upholstery is now accented with the option for the owner of making a choice of the colored ambient lighting to make you feel cozy. The panoramic sunroof added to it escalates the pleasure of long-drive, especially during holiday trips.
The earlier manual transmission now has been replaced by a user-friendly 6-speed automatic control that combines several driving modes like Tiptronic and Sport.
To keep you connected throughout your driving session, Volkswagen is now offering their Car-Net App-Connect option. This would link your phone to the infotainment system of the car. With this, you can now access the Bluetooth calling feature and can stream audio to listen to your favorite music with the help of Beetle’s premium Fender audio system.
New Safety Features
As told to us by the Volkswagen Ontario dealers, in addition to its earlier safety concepts, the new updates in the safety wing has built up a highly strong safety cage around its frame. The 2018 Beetle is now packed with an impressive list of safety features, that includes:
- Intelligent Crash Response System
- Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Rear Traffic Alert
- Park Pilot
- Stability-Enhancing Systems
- Winding Thoughts
The 2018 VW Beetle has redesigned its hatchback with all new and improved parts to give a tough competition to its rivals of this segment. The effort didn’t go waste in the thin air and that made the journey of this vehicle smoother in the market.
