The Volkswagen Beetle, a machine that has a grand complete of three (rely ’em) generations since its introduction, can be ushered out the manufacturing unit door in Puebla subsequent July. The fashionable Bug, as we all know it at this time, confirmed up as an idea car in 1997 and entered manufacturing a few years later as the New Beetle. In 2011, the car discovered itself restyled and rechristened as merely the Beetle, identical to the previous Beetle. However not the New Beetle, regardless that most individuals continued to name the New New Beetle the New Beetle, regardless of its official identify being merely Beetle.

Achtung! Nobody ever stated naming conventions needed to make sense.

No matter you need to name it, manufacturing of the car will wrap up in mid-2019. As a ship off, VW has crafted a particular mannequin choice referred to as the Remaining Version.

To rejoice the Beetle’s heritage, two particular fashions will be a part of the lineup for its final mannequin yr, to be referred to as the Ultimate Version SE and Ultimate Version SEL. It’ll be out there in coupe and convertible physique types. Gather ’em all!

As with most particular editions of this type, the paint booth has been prepped for a few new hues. Safari Uni is a reinvention of Harvest Moon Beige, a colour from the (previous) New Beetle. In the meantime, the shade of Stonewashed Blue is a nod to the 1970 Denims Bug and most just lately seen on the 2016 Beetle Denim. Eagle-eyed Bug spotters will be capable of select Remaining Editions by means of physique-shade aspect mirrors, some chrome trim, and a Turbo badge on the rump as an alternative of a Beetle script.

All coupes, no matter trim, could have a sunroof. SEs will sport 17-inch alloys, whereas SELs may have 18-inch hoops. SEL trims add Bi-Xenon headlights, LED taillights, fog lamps. Inside, the Last Version Beetles get totally different upholstery than their friends. The SE will get material and leatherette seats whereas the SEL will get the actual stuff.

All 2019 Beetle fashions, together with each convertible and coupe and this Remaining Version, are powered by a TSI engine that makes 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. VW says all Last Editions are paired with a six-velocity automated transmission. No stick shift, sadly.

With the North American market expressing a seemingly everlasting want for crossover automobiles and all-wheel drive machines, Beetle improvement dollars are more likely to now be shovelled into these packages. Prime brass at VW in Germany are eager to slim down the firm’s product portfolio and platform rely. This’ll assist.

Hinrich Woebcken, head honcho of VW America, stated that there are not any speedy plans to switch the Beetle, however did level out “as we’ve seen with the I.D. BUZZ, which is the trendy and sensible interpretation of the legendary Bus, I might additionally say, ‘By no means say by no means,’” leaving the door open for a (in all probability electric) return of the Beetle someday in the future.

Pricing for the 2019 Beetle Remaining Version coupe begins at $23,045 for the SE and $25,995 for the SEL. Add about 4 grand if you would like the ragtop.
