2013 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Convertible review notes
ASSOCIATE EDITOR JAKE LINGEMAN: I don't like Volkswagen Beetles,[url=]Hermes Birkin Bag[/url], but this Turbo, and the TDI are hard not to enjoy at least a little bit. The VW had a full weekend of fancy dinners, camping and long road trips. It even did a little two tracking.
I had a dinner to attend on Friday night, so I drove over in this 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Convertible with a suit jacket on and the air conditioning cranking. It gets cold quickly, which was surprising considering it was sitting out in the sun for hours. The car gets smoking hot with those black seats under that black fabric roof. It does keep out a good amount of noise,[url=]Polo Outlet[/url], and the seal's good,[url=]Cheap Polo Shirts[/url], too. My ears popped when I rolled up the windows on the expressway. Most convertibles don't do that.
On Saturday I took a 170 mile road trip up to camp and golf. That posed a problem. The clubs wouldn't nearly fit in the trunk,[url=]Hermes Online sale[/url], and they wouldn't fit through the pass through, either. I had to lay them down in the back seat. I stuffed the super small trunk with a sleeping bag,[url=]Discount Hermes Bags[/url], a few tarps and two pillows,[url=]Ralph Lauren Polo[/url], the cooler rode up in front with me,[url=]Hermes Wallet[/url], along with two book bags. Luckily I was going solo. And luckily I didn't have to sleep in it.
The to my friend's property was a two track dirt path, most of which was passable without slowing but there were a few deep spots that I had to power through. The crew was surprised I got it back there,[url=]Hermes Belts[/url], among the Ford F 150s, GMC Sierras and Chevy Silverados.
The turbo four in the Beetle is plenty powerful. It's a GTI in a Beetle shell. The chassis is a bit softer, but the thrust is solid. I beat the Google Maps time to the property by about 25 minutes.
The mileage wasn't as high as I thought it would be,[url=]Hermes Handbags[/url], but I was cruising at a pretty good clip. I'd still never buy one of these, but the darn thing made me smile all weekend.
ASSOCIATE EDITOR GRAHAM KOZAK: I may not be any closer to buying a new new Volkswagen Beetle after two nights in this Turbo convertible, but at least I had a better time than I did in the '70s Edition Beetle Convertible with the 2.5 liter we had earlier this year.
A large part of that was the peppy, torquey 2.0 liter turbo and six speed manual. With the weather perfect for top down driving, I began to understand what this $30K convertible is all about.
It certainly isn't practicality. I wasn't the only one to be stymied by the lack of available space. I didn't need to haul big ish loads like Jake, but my motorcycle wheel and tire ended up riding shotgun as there was simply no room in the small trunk. That's with the top up.
It was quiet and fairly well composed on the road,[url=]Ralph Lauren Polo Outlet[/url], though, with enough torque to squeak the tires in first and second gears if you get a bit aggressive with the accelerator. Definitely a big step up over the naturally aspirated I5 in the last Beetle we had. After driving this combination, I can see how the last car felt slow.
It's no track weapon, though. I realize nobody buys a Beetle, let alone a Beetle convertible, for that purpose, but that didn't stop the car from putting on airs. The chronograph on the center of the dashboard was an interesting (read: pointless) addition probably about as functional to the average driver as the carbon fiber look paneling. I used it to time my commute. Woo hoo.
