2017 Volkswagen Beetle Chicago IL
When you think of the Beetle, what comes to mind? If you’re like most people, you can see round headlights and wheel arches along with a bold domed roof. It’s one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road, even after a number of design changes since its initial release more than seven decades ago. With such an obvious deviation from modern design norms, the Beetle manages to retain an iconic and retro-inspired look while still having its own modern take on the classic look of this popular car.
It’s hard to deny that one of the main draws of the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle is its style, as the overall appearance is one of the more unique ones while still standing out in a good way. Looks alone aren’t enough to keep a model on the market, but the Beetle benefits from decades of Volkswagen research and development. What you get is a quality built, sturdy on-road feel and high-quality materials, along with finely tuned German engineering. You can feel assured you’re getting a reliable and stylish model.
What makes a Beetle look like a Beetle? It starts with a domed hood paired with round headlights. The wheel wells are also steeply arched, along with the roofline. Basically, it’s all about curves for the exterior, while the interior comes standard with piano black and contrasting chrome trim elements.
When it comes to compact cars, the first thing to go is typically power. A smaller model doesn’t need to have as much punch, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want it. The standard engine in the Beetle is a 1.8-liter turbo four that offers up 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
Even a base model has a few must-have features that just aren’t possible to live without now. A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control and Bluetooth are always expected, but the Beetle also adds on automatic headlights, a 5-inch color touchscreen and a multi-function steering wheel.
