The Volkswagen Beetle lineup receives some new additions. A turbocharged diesel engine debuts, and it carries an EPA highway rating of an impressive 41 mpg. A soft top convertible version of the Beetle is also new this year. Finally, there’s a new Fender signature version that sports a dash treatment inspired by the finish seen on the company’s popular guitars.

It’s quite the balancing act to create a new car that pays homage to an iconic model while still staying modern enough to be relevant in today’s market. Yet the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle manages to confidently walk that tightrope without so much as a wobble, appealing to old hippies and young hipsters alike, not to mention plenty of folks in between.

Volkswagen’s latest Beetle dropped a few things relative to the New Beetle it replaces, including the word “New,” the height of its roof, and the cutesy demeanor. Now the Beetle line regains something lost a few years back: a fuel efficient TDI diesel iteration. The 2013 Beetle TDI will debut at the 2012 Chicago auto show.

Volkswagen has pulled back the wraps on the 2013 Beetle Convertible ahead of the vehicle’s debut at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. The drophead makes use of the same flattened roof line of the 2012 Beetle Coupe when the folding soft top is in place. Stow the roof, and the mechanism lays flat to increase rear visibility. Volkswagen says the roof can go from fully stowed to in place in just 10 seconds, and engineers built in an automatic rollover support system comprised of two computer actuated bars behind the rear seat that pop up in just four milliseconds in the event of a collision.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Price :
Pricing for the new 2013 Volkswagen Beetle has been set at $19,795 – $23,395 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.

Pricing for the Beetle TDI will be announced sometime closer to its summer on-sale date, but we expect a base sticker around the $23,395 mark, which is close to the entry fee for the current Jetta sedan and Golf TDI models. With this additional TDI option, the diesel VW shopper’s decision will come down to a preference of style or practicality. If past experience with this powertrain is any indication, you probably won’t go wrong either way.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Interior :
The Beetle 2.5L comes standard with 17 inch alloy wheels, heated windshield washer nozzles, heated mirrors, full power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control, a leather wrapped tilt and telescoping steering wheel, heated and height adjustable front seats (with lumbar adjustment), leatherette (premium vinyl) upholstery, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a trip computer and an eight speaker sound system with a CD player, an iPod interface and an auxiliary audio jack.

The 2013 VW Beetle has a cabin that draws design inspiration from the original flower power model, yet includes the same features, controls and construction as modern Volkswagens. The trim that runs across the dash and doors can be painted the same color as the exterior just as in old Bugs, while the Turbo gets secondary dash top gauges and available two tone seats.

Front bucket seats and a two person backseat provide room for up to four people. Folding the split backseat expands the 10.9 cubic foot cargo area. Interior features include:
>. Available touch screen CD stereo and navigation.
>. Available Fender premium stereo.
>. Available keyless access and push button start.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Exterior :
Despite its seemingly low roof line, the Beetle still provides plenty of room for tall drivers. The backseat is also fairly spacious, though not as roomy as the related Volkswagen Golf. The 15.4 cubic foot trunk is actually bigger than the Golf’s with the 50/50 split folding seats raised, though if you lower them, the Beetle only provides 29.9 cubes of maximum space versus the Golf’s 46 cubes.

Of course, fuel economy is the Beetle TDI’s raison d’etre. Official EPA numbers are forthcoming, but VW predicts ratings of 29 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway. Those numbers trail the Golf and Jetta TDIs’ both the sedan and SportWagen which are rated as high as 30/42 mpg, the manual version of the larger Passat TDI does even better, at 31/43 mpg. The Beetle’s less spectacular numbers, although still commendable, likely are the result of aerodynamic differences. As is often the case, style requires some sacrifices.

In creating the latest version of the Beetle Convertible, Volkswagen has reinterpreted the Beetle Convertible’s timeless design with a sportier and more dynamic silhouette, just as it did with the latest Beetle coupe. The combination of a flatter roofline and a more upright windshield gives the car a shape that’s more closely aligned with the first generation of Beetle convertibles.

Volkswagen decided to stick with a traditional soft-top rather than incorporate a folding hardtop on the car. When the top is down, it lies flat, giving good rear visibility. Although the top looks compact when furled, it’s actually wide and long when in place, an action that takes a little over 10 seconds at the touch of a button.

Inside, the Beetle Convertible retains the design cues that have made the latest Beetle such a hit with consumers, such as the body-color dashboard and the stylish gauges and trim. The spacious cabin has space for four full-size adults and is able to carry plenty of luggage: a fold down split rear bench seat increases the practicality even further.

The Beetle is also a bigger car, measuring 3.3 inches wider and 6 inches longer than its predecessor. Exterior features include :
>. Available 19 inch wheels.
>. Available panoramic moonroof.
>. Available rear spoiler.
>. Antilock brakes.
>. Side curtain airbags.
>. Electronic stability system.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Engine :
The Volkswagen Beetle is a front wheel drive, four seat hatchback powered by either a 170 hp 2.5 liter inline five cylinder engine, a 200 hp 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder, or a 140 hp turbo diesel (TDI) four cylinder. Transmission choices include a five speed manual or six speed automatic for the 2.5L, and a six-speed manual or six speed DSG with the 2.0T or TDI. Safety features include front and side impact airbags, anti lock brakes, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, and daytime running lights.

The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle is a four passenger, two door hatchback available in three main trim levels that denote the engine: Beetle 2.5L (2.5 liter gasoline), Beetle Turbo (turbocharged 2.0 liter gasoline) and Beetle TDI (turbocharged 2.0 liter diesel). For now, only the two door hatchback is offered, but a convertible version will debut later in the model year.

With the addition of the TDI, there are now three flavors of Beetle to choose from. The base 2.5L handles and rides well, but its five cylinder engine is rather blasé for such a stylish car. The Turbo is naturally a kick to drive, if not quite as capable and as much fun as a GTI (with which it shares some hardware). Still, the Turbo should please most folks looking for spirited performance along with a comfortable ride. And, of course, for those seeking max fuel efficiency the TDI delivers with its respectable performance and meager thirst.

Powering the Beetle 2.5L is a 2.5 liter five cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and 177 pound feet of torque. Every Beetle is front wheel drive. A five speed manual transmission is standard, while a six speed automatic transmission is optional. In Edmunds testing, a Beetle 2.5L with the automatic went from zero to 60 mph in 9 seconds about average for an automatic compact. Estimated EPA fuel economy is 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined with the automatic and 22/31/25 with the manual, which represent mediocre performance for a car this size.

A 2.0 liter turbodiesel with 140 hp and 236 lb-ft powers the Beetle TDI and as with the Turbo, buyers can choose between a six speed manual and the six speed DSG. Fuel economy estimates stand at 28/41/32 for the manual and 29/39/32 for the DSG.
