The Beetle Convertible has come a long way since its 1949 debut. This is especially true on the performance front. The 2018 Beetle Convertible is powered by the cutting-edge 2.0-liter EA888 four-cylinder engine. With its double overhead camshafts, it churns out 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Even with this impressive performance, the Beetle Convertible still delivers excellent efficiency, with an estimated highway fuel economy of 33 mpg. With the Beetle Convertible's strut-type front suspension and multi-link independent rear suspension, you can enjoy a very smooth ride. And sure-footed braking comes courtesy of the Electronic Brake Pressure Distribution system.
