The 2013 VW Beetle Cabriolet was shown first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2012.
It was built on the same platform with the VW Golf VI. It was a nice surprise since on the previous generation the cabrio-fans had to wait five years to get their ragtops.

As expected, the 2013 Beetle Cabriolet was heavier than the coupe version. VW claimed that it made it 20% stiffer than the previous generation by adding more braces under the car where the B-pillar was, a thicker windshield A-pillars and some reinforcements in the trunk. The additional structure, along with the top’s folding mechanism and two electric motors, and the emergency roll-over protection system behind the cockpit added 104 kg (229 lbs) to the car.

The passengers could have enjoyed the open air in less than 10 seconds and hide from the rain in 11 seconds at speeds up to 50 kph (31 mph). An interesting feature of the soft-top was a cover that could be put on top of the retracted soft-top. It was barely used since it was known as a nails destroyer for women.

There were three engine choices: two gasoline and one diesel. There was a 2.5-liter inline-5 naturally aspirated, a two-liter TSI and a 2.0-liter TDI version. All of these could have been equipped with both manual or automatic transmission.

The 2005 Volkswagen Beetle Cabrio is the upgraded version of the 2003 model which received almost the same updates like the Coupe edition launched in the same year.
While the German company added only one new engine, the 103 horsepower 1.9 TDI, the interior received lots of new features such as the heated seats, parking sensors and a six-disc CD-player with autochanger. The New Beetle Cabrio is still available in a basic version that can be customized through various features and packages. In the new model year, colors with imaginative names like “Salsa Red” or “Gecko Green” offer a glimpse of the fresh colors and paints. Altogether, 15 colors will be available for the New Beetle. In addition, the interior of the New Beetle has new fabric designs available in Black, Flannel Grey, Cream, Mellow Yellow and Aquarius Blue. The interior has also been upgraded through chrome framing on the instrument cluster and air vents. The obligatory flower vase - a real classic - has remained untouched.

The already iconic modern Beetle was unveiled to the public for the first time in 1998.
It took Volkswagen 4 years to bring the much expected convertible which proved to be a great success.

Based on the Volkswagen Golf, the Beetle had a highly rigid chassis, offering a smooth ride with low NVH levels.

The stylish car combined German engineering and performance with amazing finishes, thus the Beetle was at least an interesting choice.

For 2003, Volkswagen offered the convertible Beetle with a choice of 3 engines: a 2.0-liter, a 1.9-liter and a turbocharged 1.8-liter. Customer could choose a manual or an automatic transmission for an additional fee.

Even with the base GL trim level, the Beetle was well equipped and offered air-conditioning, central locking with keyless remote, a 6-speaker audio system, an anti-theft system, four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, halogen projector headlamps, heated side mirrors, cruise control and power windows.

Stepping up to the GLS trim levels, the Beetle featured 16-inch alloys, a power sunroof, leatherette upholstery and fog lamps.

The top-of-the-range, the GLX added a speed-activated rear spoiler, a premium 8-speaker audio system, a 3-spoke steering wheel, heated windshield washed nozzles, rain-sensing wipers and a self-dimming rearview mirrors.

Safety wise, the standard equipment included driver and front passenger airbags, side-impact airbags, a safety-belt tensioning system, ABS, optional ESP, a collapsible steering column and others.
