Trims and Special Edition 2017 Volkswagen Beetles
One of the great things about the Volkswagen Beetle is that its unique design continues to make it appear fresh, even if it has been a few years since a new generation has been launched. There’s simply no other car that looks quite like the Beetle, so it doesn’t feel like it’s lost its modern edge in the way that some sedans can. All this said, this model still isn’t up for any major changes, which is why we’re focusing on the trims and Special Edition 2017 Volkswagen Beetles.
Is anything changing for the standard 2017 Volkswagen Beetle
Before we launch into the Special Edition models, those who are just looking for the simplicity of the base 1.8T are likely wondering if there are any upgrades or changes worth waiting for. After all, the Model Year End Event is going on now, and even thought the Beetle isn’t being promoted specifically, every 2016 model is receiving great lease pricing and discounts.
The quick answer is that the 2017 Beetle is receiving only minor changes to the exterior. You can expect it to more closely resemble the R-Line trims at the front and rear bumper, so if a sportier option is up your alley, it might be worth holding out. Otherwise, now could be the best time to save on a new model.
What are the 2017 VW Beetle Special Edition models?
If you’ve been following our blog, you already know about the #PinkBeetle. No new information has been released about it, so we aren’t sure how limited the quantities will be. For those who are seeking a feminine look and have been disappointed to see a pink color option absent, you’ll want to stay on top of updates for this model that will come in Fresh Fuchsia Metallic paint with pink club cloth seats. Standard features put it in the mid-range, with the 6.5-inch touchscreen system with App-Connect, heated front seats and keyless access with push-button all standing in as technology highlights.
We aren’t entirely shocked to learn that the Beetle Dune, inspired by enthusiast-modified Baja Bugs, is not only staying on for another year, but will also come in a convertible style for 2017. It doesn’t look like the Denim will continue, so you might want to check our remaining inventory if you’re interested in a modern Jeans Beetle.

For a quick refresher, the Beetle Dune is an off-road modified vehicle with a higher ride height, underbody skid plates to protect it from small rocks and debris and the 2.0-liter, 210-horsepower turbo four. To be honest, it’s a cool-looking Beetle even if it never leaves the pavement.
The last model is one we weren’t expecting: the return of the Classic. This trim was cut for 2016, but it’s back by popular demand. Volkswagen hasn’t revealed if there will be anything new, but the interior is where the model particularly shines as everything from the checkered seats to the 17-inch “Circle” wheels will tickle your love for all things retro.
