Car of the Month June: 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Clean Diesel TDI

TMI on the TDI

With summer coming fast, you're going to want to put the top down, grab your 3 closest friends, and hop in the new Beetle Convertible TDI. Make sure to get cozy, because your road trip won't end until 594 miles later (VW's estimated distance on one tank), assuming you don't have a destination, nobody gets hungry, and nobody needs a bathroom break.


One of a Kind
As the only diesel convertible sold in America, VW has continued to keep a stylish design even with a car who's look hasn't changed much since 1949. An added bonus is that you can take the top off or put it back on as long as you are traveling under 30 mph. That means you don't have to pull over during a sudden rainstorm, but be sure to slow down and take caution. On the inside, this VW Beetle offers Bluetooth on the steering wheel, a touchscreen radio, and keyless entry.

The Numbers
The 2013 VW Beetle TDI is the latest addition to the Beetle family with an estimated fuel economy of 28 mpg in the city, 37 mpg on the highway. Approximated 594 miles to each tank, this TDI is powered by a 2.0 liter, four-cylinder turbocharged clean diesel engine with direct injection. With a starting price of under $28,000, it's a great deal for the price. The diesel-powered bug has a six-speed transmission, 140 horsepower and 236 lbs/feet of torque. 

New Slug Bug Rules for Diesel?
Along with these features, those at Slug-Bug Headquarters issued the rule for 2013 that "slugging" must be at least 2X harder when a new Diesel Bug is spotted. This will make your road trips more interesting, and also bit more painful. Just make sure you spot the Diesel Bug first.
