Volkswagen Drives Off Into The Sunset With Autobytel’s Convertible of the Year Award

While it might not be the fastest, best to drive, or even the rarest model in contention for the 2013 Autobytel Convertible of the Year, the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible has one distinct feature the other candidates don’t quite have; character. The new Beetle Convertible takes the Beetle with its new aggressive stance and removes the roof. This helps the Beetle Convertible with added presence. The editorial staff also praised the range of engines available for the Beetle Convertible, including a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder and first for the U.S., a diesel engine. Autobytel’s Editor-in-Chief Michelle Naranjo presents the award to Rainer Michel from Volkswagen at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
