After being on and off the spies, Volkswagen has revealed the 2013 Beetle Cabriolet before its official unveiling at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show. 

Volkswagen claims that the roof can cover up in just 10 seconds. New Volkswagen Beetle cabriolet would also be offered with a 2.0L diesel engine.


This convertible is powered by 3 engine options:

  • 1.2L TSI 104hp petrol
  • 1.2L TSI 104hp with VWs fuel saving BlueMotion Technology package
