Overview

What's New in the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle?

The faux-buggy Dune version has been discontinued and Volkswagen has arranged trim levels into S, SE, Final Edition SE and Final Edition SEL. As a result, there's a redistribution of equipment and options across these four trims. The new Final Edition versions include a lot of standard equipment for their prices. See the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle models for sale near you

Which Beetle is the Best?

It seems that a Final Edition SE is a no-brainer. Or a Final Edition SEL is still cheaper than a regular SE with the Premium Package. Each buyer will have an idea on whether or not a fixed roof is the preferred choice. Find a Volkswagen Beetle for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Cost?

The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle is available as a coupe or a soft-top convertible. All the convertible versions have a powered fabric roof, tonneau cover, insulated glass rear window and a rear spoiler.

Competition

2019 Volkswagen Beetle vs the competition

2019 Fiat 500 -- The turbocharged Abarth version of the 500 has a memorable exhaust note and the whole car is a chuckle.

2019 Ford Fiesta ST -- For a small car with a lot of personality and a winning FWD chassis, check this one out.

2019 Mini Hardtop -- Blends acceleration, handling, charm and fuel economy.

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata -- Another one of those "car as lifestyle statement" creations, but also great fun and well built.

2019 Subaru BRZ -- Comes as a coupe only, but has a great combination of usable power and excellent rear-drive dynamics.

Used Volkswagen Golf/GTI -- The Golf and the GTI have superior cabins in terms of both quality and space. A certified pre-owned (CPO) model could be a great deal.
