2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible confirmed for LA debut
It has also been reported, though not from VW, that new period-correct trim, with retro paint colors, upholstery and other details, will help capture the nostalgia of the "Fifties," "Sixties" or "Seventies."
The automaker has stated that there will be three engine choices for North American customers (it appears EV fans will have to keep waiting). Under the front hood of standard models will be a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter five-cylinder (earlier this week, we announced that the inline-five is being discontinued in the Jetta). The Beetle Turbo will be fitted with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder running on unleaded and the Beetle TDI receives a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder burning diesel.
