2018 Volkswagen Beetle Washington D.C.

Habanero Orange 2018 Volkswagen Beetle

Every year, there are rumors that the Beetle could be coming to the end of its run. With so many great models on the market and an ever-increasing drive toward making something new and fresh, there might be some weight to these fears. If your dream car is the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle, now might be the best time for Washington D.C. shoppers to take a look at the model that started it all.

For the 2018 model year, the Volkswagen Beetle comes in S, S with Style and Comfort and SE trims. Additionally, Coast and Dune Special Edition models add unique appeal to a model that is already known for its whimsical design. The Dune is themed after the Baja Bug, but with factory-produced design elements. The Coast, on the other hand, calls to mind the carefree nature of a beach lifestyle. Both options offer their own exclusive color options.

One of the key reasons that shoppers still select the 2018 VW Beetle is obviously because the design itself is appealing and just a little bit quirky. This alone wouldn’t be enough, however.

Combine this potent engine with a standard six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport driving modes, and you might be shocked to find just how fun it is to drive this compact model.
