With its recent redesign, the "new" in "New Beetle" has been dropped and a sleeker, more aggressive look has been added.

The 2013 Volkswagen Beetle convertible offers drop-top excitement with a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter engine that gets 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. There are five models that come with the 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine, including a '50s edition that sports classic wheels and harkens back to the iconic car loved by so many more than a half-century ago.

VW Beetle Turbo convertible models start at $28,470 and feature a 200-horsepower 2-liter engine that gets 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, while the TDI Clean Diesel models, starting at $27,895, are powered by a 140-horsepower 2-liter diesel engine that gets 28 mpg city and 41 mpg highway. All models come with a power-folding soft top with one-step operation, leatherette seats with heated front seats, air bags, and a 50-50 split-folding rear seat.
