Why the VW Beetle Convertible Is Perfect for California

VW Beetle Convertible

When it comes to cruising around California, the classic beach buggy is the ideal way to do so. Volkswagen is putting a stylish new interpretation on that classic with the introduction of the VW Beetle Dune. Designed to reflect a slightly more muscular look than the original, the 2017 Beetle Dune features a 1.8-liter turbocharged direct-injection engine. This is the same engine that powers the Passat, Golf, and Jetta. Capable of producing 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, this vehicle is surprisingly powerful despite its small size, which makes it ideal whether you’re tooling around the streets of LA or you’re heading out to the beach to catch some rays with your friends.
