After nearly seven decades of icon domination, the Volkswagon Beetle has finally reached the end of the road. The 2019 Beetle 2.0T Final Edition SE will be the last of the Beetle models to hit America’s streets.

The Volkswagen Beetle first invaded the U.S. in 1949, when it quickly made its mark as an automotive standout. In the 1960s the Beetle made a lasting cultural impression among counterculture followers.  Since then, Volkswagen has been able to keep the overall features of the VW Beetle intact. Even with this third-generation Beetle, it is modernized with today’s smart technology while holding on to its rich heritage.

With the final edition, Volkswagen Beetle is offering four trim models; S, SE, Final Edition SE, and Final Edition SEL. They come in a coupe and convertible body style with a standard automatic transmission. All models come equipped with standard Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Traffic Alert.

As featured, The Final Edition SE features standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, chrome exterior accents,  KESSY® keyless access with push-button start, rhombus cloth seating surfaces with leatherette inserts, heated seats, leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheels with a unique “Beetle” clip, stainless steel pedal caps and metal scuff plates, and unique Safari uni-color dash pad.

The interior of the Final Edition models still garners cool-factor attention. From its gloss-black center console, three-color ambient lighting, to the Composition Media infotainment, SiriusXM® radio, and Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect the Beetle is a phenomenally fun car.

VWs Safari Unicolor seen above is eye-catching. The beige-like color is one of the brand’s most popular colors. The SE models all come equipped with standard chrome bumper accents, automatic headlights, and rain-sensing wipers.

Don’t let the size fool you either. The 2019 Beetle 2.0T Final Edition is powered by a 2.0-liter engine with 174 horsepower that has amazing get-up and go. To sweeten the deal, a six-year or 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty is available.

Volkswagen has modestly priced the 2019 Beetle Final Edition, starting at $20,895. The featured model comes in at $23,940.
