Differences Between 2016 and 2017 Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen may offer a lot of great models, but when people think of VW, one of the first cars they likely think of is the iconic Beetle. As we enter the 2017 model year, drivers will need to know the differences between the 2016 and 2017 Volkswagen Beetle. Thankfully, we have all the information you need to know.

The Beetle remains largely unchanged for 2017 compared to the 2016 model year. You’ll still find the same features you love, but with some exterior design upgrades. All 1.8T Beetle models for 2017 have more aggressive-looking bumpers that are reminiscent of the 2.0T Beetle R-Line trims from 2016.

Though the regular Beetle coupe and Beetle convertible models don’t change a whole lot, there are some noteworthy additions to the lineup. Believe it or not, shopping for a Beetle is now even more fun.
