What Does the 2020 Volkswagen Beetle Do Differently Than Other Models?

There were 17,215 Volkswagen Beetles sold in the United States in 2019. The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most recognizable automobiles of all time.

It was February 17, 1972, when the 15,007,034th new VW Beetle rolled off the assembly line and broke the world car production record previously held by Ford Motor Company for the Model T.

You may be wondering about the 2020 Volkswagen Beetle, but it does not exist. Volkswagen produced the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Finale Edition. Read on here to learn all about it.

There is No 2020 Volkswagen Beetle

The Beetle was up for a redesign in 2020, but VW decided to make 2019 the final year for this iconic model. The unique, charming style of the familiar VW Bug lives on in the 2019 Final Edition, now available on previously owned car lots.

History of the Beetle

Production of the Beetle in Germany ended in 1974. Volkswagen has been building vehicles in Puebla, Mexico since 1965, and that was the exclusive production facility for the new 1998 Beetle.

When it was announced that 2019 would be the final production year of the Beetle, Car and Driver Magazine paid tribute to its history and its Final Edition.

The Final Edition of the Beetle is available as a convertible or a coupe. Coming in special colors of Safari Uni (tan) or Aquarius Blue, with special trim and special equipment, it is the same Beetle that owners have loved for decades. The Final Edition has two models:

  • Final Edition SE—features VW Car-Net App-Connect, rhombus-quilted design seats, Kaferfach heritage-inspired glovebox, Beetle nameplate on the hatch, brushed steel pedals
  • Final Edition SEL—features 6.3” touchscreen navigation system, 18” white disc alloy wheels, Fender®Premium Audio system, diamond-stitched leather seats,

With a maximum speed of 120 mph, the VW Beetle accelerates from 0-60 mph in 7.2-7.5 seconds and 0-100 mph in 19.5-20.0 seconds. Estimated gas mileage is 29 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
