2017 Volkswagen Beetle Tampa FL
In some ways the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle is a humble sort of car, with beginnings that put the focus on practical needs rather than style. But with the first generation quickly gaining attention for its unique look, the model continues to be popular to this day. You can find the Beetle here in the Tampa FL area at Brandon Volkswagen, and a variety of trims are already available. There are only minor changes to the model overall, but special edition options bring unique color choices and styles to the Beetle.
In a constantly changing world that can sometimes seem fickle, models that survive through the decades are a bit rare. Volkswagen has managed by offering a compact vehicle that packs a nostalgic punch for many drivers. Others simply love the appearance, plus the model has extra headroom for those in the front seat. This compact car may only seat four, but it turns heads and inspires enthusiasm, which a lot of other vehicles in the segment fail to do, all while packing a punch with the 170-horsepower engine.
There can be little doubt that the Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road. Starting in childhood, many learn to spot the round headlights and sweeping roofline from a distance, and though the model is sportier than in the past, it is no less fun to look at.
The standard engine for the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle is the 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which delivers 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Paired with it is a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport driving modes. A 2.0-liter is available on R-Line trims.
Compact cars aim to balance pricing and features, which can be a fine line. The VW Beetle starts out with the S trim and standard features include new sport-designed bumper, automatic headlights, Bluetooth with audio, a rearview camera system, touchscreen sound and cloth seating surfaces.
