2015 Volkswagen Beetle

2015 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE: On display at the 107th annual Chicago Auto Show, Feb.14-22, 2015, is the Volkswagen Beetle, the modern interpretation of an icon. New for 2015 are the Beetle Classic model and a new turbodiesel engine. The Beetle Classic is a limited-edition model that builds off the base Beetle and adds features such as a unique seat fabric, front lumbar supports, a navigation system, and a six-speed automatic transmission. Seventeen-inch wheels are available. The new 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine replaces the outgoing 2.0-liter TDI, and it makes 10 more horsepower, bumping the number up to 150. When equipped with the available six-speed DSG automatic, the diesel’s highway fuel economy number goes from 39 mpg to 41 mpg. The retro-influenced Beetle remains available as a hardtop or convertible, and in addition to the turbodiesel it offers a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that mates to either a five-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic, or a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that mates to a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic. The 1.8-liter engine makes 170 horsepower and the 2.0-liter engine produces 210 horsepower, and it powers the sporty R-Line trim. The 1.8 achieves 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway with the manual and 25/33 with the automatic, while the 2.0-liter achieves 24/30 with the DSG automatic and 23/31 with the six-speed manual. The diesel can get 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway with the manual, in addition to the 41 mpg highway from the automatic.
