2016 Volkswagen Beetle Cleveland OH
The automotive industry is all about innovation, but there are many shoppers who want a vehicle that appeals to their sense of nostalgia. Fortunately the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle in Cleveland OH is designed to perfectly combine retro-appeal with modern amenities to create a model that provides the best of everything. Gone are the days of an ultra-round look, with the modern Beetle combining new design elements with the silhouette of the original to remain an icon while still holding its own style.
While looks may not be everything, it’s clear that VW owners are in love with the idea of customization. This year Volkswagen has made it even easier to get a model that’s just the right hue with four new exterior colors that are brighter and bolder than ever: Sandstorm Yellow, Habanero Orange, Dark Bronze and Silk Blue. These are added on to the nine options which were already available for the previous model year, providing a variety of options. The 2016 Beetle also will continue to be offered as a coupe or convertible.
Standard features have changed for the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle in light of a new naming strategy which adds on a more affordable base model. These features include automatic headlights, cloth seating, a rear spoiler, 16-inch Whirl wheels, Bluetooth, and automatic transmission and a 5-inch touchscreen.
Nobody likes to consider how a vehicle will handle in an accident, but it’s nice to know safety features are there. The 2016 VW Beetle adds on an automatic post-collision braking system, which prevents further damage by slowing the vehicle after airbags are deployed, in addition to other safety features.
For those who enjoyed the driving style of the Beetle already, it’s staying exactly the same with a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque to the base model. Other engine options include a 2.0T TSI in the R-line and the 2.0-liter Clean Diesel TDI.
