2016 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Glendale CA
No model is more iconic in the Volkswagen lineup than the Beetle. It’s not only the one most recognized within the automaker’s lineup, but also stands out against the competition. Those looking for their dream car will find it gets even better when choosing the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible in Glendale CA. This vehicle offers all the same features as the standard Beetle, while oozing with additional style thanks to a power-folding soft top that comes in either beige or black color options.
When the sun is beating down, many shoppers would love the ability to drive a convertible, but affordable options are few and far between.

For this price, features include V-Tex leatherette upholstery, Bluetooth technology, the new MIB II infotainment system with a 5-inch touchscreen and a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel.
What’s better than having a model that turns heads? A vehicle that comes standard with a 1.8-liter turbo four that returns 170hp and 184 pound-feet of torque is an excellent start. The R-Line increases performance further with its 2.0T four-cylinder engine that returns 210hp and 207 pound-feet of torque.
With a vehicle as iconic as the Beetle, it’s important for Volkswagen to stay true to its original looks, while also offering something refreshing and modern.
