Features of the 2018 VW Beetle

One of our favorite things about modern-day Beetles are the many special edition trims that have come out over the years. For 2018, the Dune, based on the Baja Bug, continues as a slightly more aggressive, off-road tuned option. Joining it is a fresh trim, the Coast, which is styled with inspiration from the beach. A surfboard-look dash is paired with pepita cloth seating surfaces, with a standard sunroof to let in the sun’s rays. An exclusive color option, Deep Sea Teal, is found only on the Beetle Coast.

Of course, you don’t need to opt for a special edition Beetle to enjoy the 2018 model year. The Beetle continues to be offered in the S, S with Style and Comfort and SE trims. The base trim, S, has standard features that include a touchscreen sound system, rearview camera, Bluetooth with audio streaming, cruise control, manual air conditioning, a multi-function steering wheel and a leather-wrapped gearshift knob.

The 2018 VW Beetle is a compact coupe that offers 85.1 cubic feet of passenger volume and seating for four. Cargo space is measured at 15.4 cubic feet, which is just shy of what you might find in a larger model like the Passat.
