Volkswagen of America announced that it will end production of the iconic Beetle in 2019 and will celebrate its rich heritage with two special final models.

17 Sep 2018 | International News : U.S.A

To celebrate the Beetle's rich heritage, two special models will join the lineup for its last model year - Final Edition SE and Final Edition SEL. Available in coupe and convertible body styles, the Final Edition models include exclusive equipment and unique upscale decor elements designed to send the Beetle off in style. Models also draw inspiration from the first generation Beetle's final run in Mexico, where the vehicle is assembled.

SEL models offer diamond-stitched leather seats
Final Edition coupe models feature standard chrome treatments, in addition to body-coloured side mirrors, heated washer nozzles (all standard features across the Beetle Convertible lineup), as well as a sunroof.

Final Edition SEL models are equipped with Bi-Xenon head lights with LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, and fog lights. All Final Edition models replace the typical 'Turbo' badge on the tailgate with a 'Beetle' badge.

Unique wheels complete the exterior transformation of Beetle Final Edition models. Final Edition SE models feature 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with a 15-spoke design. Final Edition SEL models are shod with 18-inch white aluminum-alloy wheels in a disc design that is reminiscent of the Ultima Edicion's body-coloured steel wheels fitted with chrome hubcaps and whitewall tyres.

Inside, all Final Edition models are equipped with standard keyless access with push-button start, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel with unique 'Beetle' clip, stainless steel pedal caps, Climatronic automatic climate control, gloss black centre console, a unique Safari Uni colour dashpad with the classic kaeferfach glovebox or 'Beetle bin' that harkens to the colour-matched interior treatments in the Ultima Edicion, and three-colour ambient lighting.

Final Edition SE models feature cloth and leatherette rhombus-pattern seats, while SEL models offer standard diamond-stitched leather seating surfaces.

All 2019 Beetle models, both convertible and coupe, are powered a 2.0-litre TSI engine that puts out 174 horsepower and 250Nm of torque. All models are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
