Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

The New Beetle convertible is available in Black, Laser Blue, Gecko Green, Salsa Red, Harvest Moon and Sunflower Yellow.

For four-season fun, the New Beetle convertible features a three-layer cloth top with a heated glass rear window. An extra window switch on convertible models allows the driver to lower and raise all of the side windows simultaneously.

The modern top helps keep road noise out in the ?up? or closed position. Lowering the top is easy, and it piles neatly behind the rear seat in original Beetle fashion.

The New Beetle convertible also includes an Active Rollover Support? system that ?pops up? two spring-loaded aluminum posts in 0.25 seconds from behind the rear seat headrests. For soft-top models, available options include a semi-automatic roof and a wind blocker.

The 2008 New Beetle and New Beetle convertible boast many of the most popular comfort and convenience luxuries as standard features, including fully reclining, height-adjustable front seats, a height-adjustable and telescoping three-spoke padded steering wheel. A 10-speaker premium in-dash CD/MP3/satellite-ready stereo is available in the convertible.

All New Beetle and New Beetle convertibles offer select leather trim as options. Also available are heatable front seats and windshield washer nozzles as well as SIRIUS? satellite radio.

Owners can select option packages that include features such as model-specific 17-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires.
