Perhaps the most loved drop top in the world, the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible is sure to put a smile on your face. Triggering a sense of nostalgia, this car’s appeal spans the generational gap, attracting both young and old alike.

 

Sadly, it’s 80-year history is coming to a close. The German automaker has announced that production is ending. Fortunately, you can still get your hands on a 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible in Abbotsford, at Abbotsford Volkswagen. Here, you’ll not only find the largest selection in the area, but also a team of experts and enthusiasts on hand, who would be delighted to share their experience and expertise.

Featuring its ancestor’s iconic good looks, the 2019 model is loaded with retro appeal. You’ll find some sharp colours available, most notably Stonewash Blue, a throwback to the memorable Denim Blue shade from the 1970s. The car rides on 18-inch Disc alloy wheels, evoking yet even more fond memories of earlier editions. It still has a drop top, the modern version requiring only the press of a button on your key fob, instead of the 2-person wrangling job required by the original. The retro aesthetic carries through to the car’s interior, where you’ll find unique and stylish details including quilted, diamond-stitched leather seating.

 

While the Beetle Convertible looks old-school, it is anything but. Loaded with modern technological advances, the car is packed with a long list of comforts & conveniences, connectivity, and safety features. Those vintage-looking seats are heated, navigation is standard, and you’ll enjoy numerous infotainment options & smartphone integration. Standard features include a rear-view camera, a nifty App-Connect system that allows you to control your smartphone safely, through voice or the car’s large screen. The car also comes equipped with Volkswagen’s automatic post-collision braking system, which tightens seatbelts and applies the brakes when an impact is detected, in an attempt to prevent subsequent collisions or injury.

 

Two trims are available, each very well equipped. The Wolfsburg Edition is packed with all of the essentials, plus plenty of the extra features you really want. Enjoy satellite navigation with voice activation,  rain-sensing wipers, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay integration, keyless entry with pushbutton start and a key fob for operating the power soft top. You’ll also have extra safety features, including Blind Spot Detection with Rear Traffic Alert; keeping those in and around the vehicle a little extra safe. Tri-colour ambient lighting is an interesting touch, as is the classic Beetle glove compartment.

 

The Dune model comes fully loaded with everything on your wish list, plus features you haven’t even thought about. You’ll get everything found on the Wolfsburg model, plus a whole bunch of bells and whistles. You’ll love its premium Fender sound system with subwoofer, bi-xenon headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors and even some distinctive styling details that are reminiscent of a dune buggy.

 

If all of this is not enough, consider adding the Sport Appearance package and take your car to the next level. This package bumps the wheel size up to 20-inches and adds aluminum sport pedals and stainless steel, Beetle-logoed door sill protection trim.

 

Both models share a very capable a 2.0L turbo that delivers 174-horsepower & 184 lb-ft of torque, along with a 6-speed automatic transmission. As fun to drive as it looks, the Beetle Convertible offers peppy performance and is super nimble for city driving. You’ll have no trouble snagging a last-second parking spot, and parallel parking is a cinch thanks to its parking sensors.

 

This car is also loaded with outstanding value. Priced at less than $30,000, the Beetle Convertible is the least-expensive 4-seater convertible available in Canada. With so many standard features, and it’s legendary German engineering, you’ll definitely have yourself a bargain.
