Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013: The First Impressions

Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013: The First Impressions

What a surprise: since all the diesel engines offer the Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Passat and Volkswagen Touareg, it was only a matter of time before that Volkswagen released of the 2.0 L TDI engine in the Beetle, called The Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013.

And why not? A TDI provides full torque at low rpm and is highly effective, making the Volkswagen Beetle 2013 even more interesting for those seeking a coupe and soon the convertible version more compact unique in its kind.

Price tag USD 25,575 For version Comfortline TDI base with the automated DSG 6 speed transmission, it is also USD 2,000 more expensive than the 2.5 L 5-cylinder version. However, its lose much at the level of performance that win more than 2 L / 100 km: city/highway of the TDI are 7.0/5.0 l / 100 km.

The muscle to take-off
As in other VW products, the 2.0 L TDI develops 140 horsepower as well as a generous torque of 236 lb – ft. With the DSG box, which performs excerpts from reports fast as lightning, the Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.3 seconds.

This couple makes the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle TDI fun-to-drive, which quickly reached cruising speed before the power curve starts to plateau. The 2.0 TSI 200 hp motor is obviously that to choose for performance enthusiasts, but I prefer the TDI 5-cylinder base.

On the road, the Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013 demonstrates his aplomb and offers a dynamic driving experience, although it is not a sports car. The MacPherson struts in the front and the rear torsion bar doing a good job, absorbing the imperfections in the road while encouraging you to take the next curve more quickly than the previous, just for fun. The hydraulic power steering provides ideal support, regardless of the speed at which driving.

More masculine?
With a less exaggerated proportions and low roof line, the Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013 should appeal to many more guys. However, it remains in my humble opinion a char of girls.

Still, being a guy or a girl, there is much to love in the Beetle TDI, fun to drive and energy, just like the other car in VW diesel-powered.

Comfortline and Highline of the Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013 finishes get at the wheel trim matching the color of the body and a surface of the dashboard: rather striking in a car painted red. The Sportline finish receives in imitation carbon fiber trim.

There not really other elements distinguish the Interior of the Beetle to other models of cars with Volkswagen. On the other hand, its control layout is simple and logical. It has firm seats but with good support, then access to the rear seats is relatively easy. As for cargo space, the volume of the trunk of the Volkswagen Beetle TDI 2013 is 436 litres, superior to those of the Honda Civic coupe, Hyundai Elantra coupe , and even the VW Golf.

The standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, heated front seats, a steering wheel and a Bluetooth connectivity, leather-wrapped shifter and a driver’s seat adjustable in height, while the USB/iPod integration and the roof opening are available. The equipment list is shorter than some rivals, such as the Hyundai.
