In the Driveway: 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible TDI
Speaking soaking up the sun, in the driveway this week is the 2013 VW Beetle Convertible with the TDI engine and a real six-speed manual transmission. Yes, a six-speed diesel convertible!
As we mentioned in our previous VW Beetle Turbo review, we think Volkswagen did a nice job with the Beetle's recent refresh, and that goes for this convertible, too. I've briefly driven this vehicle before and love the torque, the smooth-shifting transmission, and easy-to-use top. We'll see how it is over a week's time and if we like it as much as we initially did. Stay tuned.
