2018 VW Beetle
There are many reasons why shoppers near Grand Prairie or Grapevine might choose the 2018 VW Beetle for their next new car. Maybe they like the punchy powertrain, or perhaps it’s the easy-to-use technology in the cabin that draws them in. Most likely, the Beetle iconic design will play at least some small part!
At Principle Volkswagen, we want to give Dallas and Irving drivers a closer look at this exciting subcompact car in our 2018 Volkswagen Beetle review. Learn more about this car and give us a call if you have any questions!
2018 Beetle Design: Styles & Trims
There’s no vehicle quite like the 2018 Beetle on the market today, and that’s most evident in all the design options. The Beetle seats up to four people and comes in both coupe and convertible body styles. Whether you like the wind in your hair or that distinctive, curvy hard top, you’ll find a Beetle suited for you.
2018 brings a new trim to the lineup: the Beetle Coast, whose theme might be best described as Retro Beach. With trademark Deep Sea Teal Metallic paint, a surfboard-style dash, unique wave-patterned cloth upholstery, and (in the hardtop version) a panoramic sunroof, the Coast looks ready for a day in the sun.
If the Coast embodies the beach, the returning Dune trim is infused with desert spirit. With trademark Sandstorm Yellow Metallic paint, “DUNE” rocker panel decals, 18-inch Canyon alloy wheels, and a raised suspension, the Beetle Dune gives off a rugged vibe. These special editions are just the beginning!

A Closer Look at Performance Specs
Under the hood of the 2018 Beetle, you’ll find a turbocharged 2.0L TSI® I-4 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport modes. The combination is good for 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, and with that transmission, you can customize that power delivery however you like.
Test drivers have found the Beetle good for a smooth, refined ride, and power steering is well-tuned to maintain steadiness at high speeds while remaining maneuverable at low ones. It drives with strong efficiency as well, getting an EPA-estimated 26 city and 33 highway MPG and saving you trips to refuel.1
