2009 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible Car Review I still remember back to the late ‘90s when the New Beetle was all the rage. People couldn’t get enough of its retro styling and the good feelings it evoked when you passed it on the road. The following years part a turbo model, a mighty turbo ass and a convertible. Sadly, over the past decade the new beetle’s offerings have been paired down significantly to only the hardtop and convertible, the 2009 soft top is powered by a 2.5 liter, 5 cylinder making 150 horsepower and a six-speed auto. Change points 409 are few, oiling down logistic couple of color and wheel design changes. VW basically gave up long ago when mowing mail buyers to this car so turbo models and stick shifts were no longer needed. Several special editions have been offered recently to pump up sales. The New Beetle convertible features a three-layer cloth top with a heated glassware window, an extra window switch on convertible models allows the driver to lower and raise all of the side windows simultaneously. Lowering the top is easy and it fits behind the rear seat in original Beetle fashion. The soft top also includes a semi-automatic power roof and a wind blocker’s options. Beware though trunk space is severely compromised. The rear seat is virtually unusable and performance is lazy. Acceleration runs the 60 miles per hour take 9.1 seconds. Mileage from the 5-cylinder is rated at 20 mpg city and 29 highway. MSRP is $26,690.00 and the options are few. If this model still appeals to you note that in all new version is rumored to be in the works for 2010 as a 2011 model likely losing some of its flair for the feminine.
