After 80 years, the production of the iconic Volkswagen Beetle is coming to a halt in 2019.

In the 1930’s, Ferdinand Porsche designed the “people’s car” to be affordable, practical, and reliable. By the end of 1946, more than 10,000 cars were manufactured, and a decade later, one million had been sold. The “bug” became a renowned symbol of the 1960s and the “small is beautiful” ethos. After 60 years, VW gave the car its first major update, known as the “New Beetle.”

Due to an unfortunate decline in sales since 2013, Volkswagen decided to make one final production of the Beetle for 2019, and the brand is truly going out with a bang.

Meet the VW Beetle Final Edition SE & SEL

To celebrate the Beetle’s last year, Volkswagen has incorporated two special models to the lineup—Final Edition SE and Final Edition SEL.

Available in coupe and convertible body styles, the Final Edition models offer a number of exclusive features and unique design details for a show stopping finale. In the coupe models, you’ll find stylish enhancements like standard chrome treatments, heated washer nozzles, and a sunroof. Take a glance at the Final Edition SEL models, and you’ll discover Bi-Xenon® headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, LED taillights, and fog lights for an illuminated exterior. With two new exterior color options added to the mix, drivers can choose to boast a Safari Uni or Stonewashed Blue finish.

Inside, all Final Edition models offer standard KESSY® keyless access with push-button start, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, Climatronic® automatic climate control, three-color ambient lighting, and more. In the Final Edition SE models, you’ll be able to relax in cloth and leatherette rhombus-pattern seats as you utilize features like the Composition Media infotainment unit with a 6.3-inch touchscreen display, Voice Control, Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect smartphone integration, and other additional aspects. Get behind the wheel of one of the SEL models to sit comfortably in standard diamond-stitched leather seating, and enjoy upgraded enhancements like Discover Media infotainment with navigation, Car-Net Security & Service, Fender® Premium Audio, and more.
