There are some cars in the market that reach a height of popularity not only for delivering a satisfactory on-road performance and a higher level of ride comfort, but also for ensuring a resale value that makes the owner happy during a trade-in deal. The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle sets one such example that apart from performing all its tasks with equal competence offers an unexpected amount of value when used as a trade-in while its warrantyrelieves the owners from all possible hazards, since the day of ownership. Even the worst critics of this Volkswagen subcompact car had to admit that they couldn’t find much to complain about, as any Volkswagen car dealership you visit simply keep boasting on this car for all good reasons.

What Got Packed for the 2019 Model Edition?

For the year 2019, Volkswagen trimmed off the Dune and Coast special edition leaving the lineup be built upon the S, SE, and SE with Premium Package trims. Though that was enough to keep the nameplate continue to make its mark, Volkswagen wanted to fill the gap by raising up the base S model higher in its stature by standardizing the most wanted safety features like blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts but couldn’t bring the automatic emergency braking  into the scene. However, by keeping all the trim levels available either as a coupe or convertible, the 2019 Beetle continued to remain steady on its fame.

To add to the glory, you can see the Final Edition SE and SEL trims of the 2019 Beetle getting a sunroof along with nice pairs body-color side mirrors and heated washer nozzles. On the other hand, the SEL arrive this time with newly added LED daytime running lights as well as taillights. The 2019 year lineup of Volkswagen Beetle also adds two unique shades to its existing color palette, which they call as Safari Uni beige and Stonewashed Blue.

Powertrain Choices

Coming to the powertrains, the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle continues to have only one standard setup that uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine known for making 174 of horsepower after being mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Here some critics might raise their criticism against the manufacturer for not offering a manual gearbox.

But even with this existing powertrain choice, the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle should be given the credit for being the fun to drive vehicle it is. Anyone who has driven one, especially with a critical mindset would have to admit the driving pleasureit delivers through the quick responding driving dynamics. Among all the other components, the firm suspension deserves a special mention here that carves in sharp cornering while soaking up all the road imperfections to maintain the composure its retro looks would promise to the onlookers.

Thankfully, the warranty offered by Volkswagen with every 2019 Beetle model includes bumper-to-bumper coverage eitherfor 6 years of ownership from the date of purchase or 72,000 miles of, whichever comes first. A automobile critic whom we met at the Bakersfield car dealer found no other choice but to appreciate the Beetle for offering so many virtues even at its base model S that is now enhanced with synthetic leather upholstery, 17-inch wheels, keyless ignitionand Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as standard.
