The Volkswagen Beetle, originally simply called the Volkswagen —“the people’s car,” is one of the most beloved and cherished nameplates of all time, with its distinctive curvy silhouette, fun-to-drive nature, easy maneuverability and cultural significance. The 2017 Volkswagen Beetle in Orange County CA still rekindles the spirit and imagination of the original for a new generation of Volkswagen owners, paying homage to past with classic design elements, while boasting an abundance of state-of-the-art technology features. Come take the 2017 Beetle for a test drive at Capistrano Volkswagen!
The 2017 Beetle offers two new trims. The stylish 2017 VW #PinkBeetle, offered as a limited-edition model, is poised to become an immediate automotive trending topic with its unique hashtag name. Offered in its own unique shade of Fresh Fuchsia Metallic paint, the #PinkBeetle’s eye-catching paint is contrasted by gloss-black mirror caps and black running boards. The 2017 VW Beetle Dune harkens back to the classic Baja Bugs of yesteryear. Overall, the Beetle Dune has a bolder appearance in the Beetle range, thanks to the fitment of new front and rear fascias and pronounced black wheelarch extensions that flow into the bumpers. Additionally, the Dune’s raised ride height of 0.4 inches and a 0.6-inch wider body give it a more rugged stance.

The 2017 Beetle delivers spirited performance with its two engines and transmissions — the 170-hp 1.8-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, and the 210-hp 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the acclaimed DSG six-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual. All Beetle models are fitted with a strut-type front suspension with a lower control arm and an anti-roll bar, as well as anti-lock brakes with electronic brake pressure distribution. Also, the high-performance Beetle R-Line model features the XDS cross differential (limited-slip) system that helps electronically monitor input from various wheel sensors and, in the event of slippage, transfers extra torque to the wheel or wheels with the most traction.
You can have the peace of mind for safety in the 2017 Beetle. The starting point in the Beetle’s safety armory is a very rigid body structure that uses ultra-high-strength, hot-formed steels in the crash-load paths and seamless laser welds. Electronic Stability Control and Front and head-thorax side airbags are also among the standard equipment. Additionally, all Beetle trims come with the Automatic Post-Collision Braking system, which apples the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping reduce residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage.
