Used 2008 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible Values

The 2008 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible is offered in S and SE trims, with your choice of either an automatic or manual transmission. An enthusiast’s favorite, the Beetle Convertible receives only minor changes this year due to its major overhaul in 2006. A 150 horsepower 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder is the only powertrain offered, with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission (with 16-inch wheels on the S and 17-inch wheels on the SE). New-for-2008 standard equipment includes a tire pressure monitor, with an optional cold weather package on the S.

The SE trim is a mid-range offering, and it includes a number of desirable items, most notably 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a sunroof on the coupe. The Triple White Beetle is no longer orderable on the convertible, but it is newly available on the coupe.
