Volkswagen > Beetle WLTP, MPG, Fuel consumption

Select the motor type for the year.

In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Volkswagen Beetle. We will examine the details about the Volkswagen Beetle under three main categories such as The Features of the Volkswagen Beetle, The Fuel Consumption of the Volkswagen Beetle and Basic Characteristics of Volkswagen Beetle. These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the Volkswagen Beetle. When we look back on the history of the car, we see that it has a very long and adventurous history. The first idea phase of the Beetle model dates back to the times when Adolf Hitler ruled Nazi Germany. At that time, Ferdinand Porsche had responded to Hitler's request for a cheap and low-cost public car. After Porsche and his team started their work, the first design samples started to come in 1925, and in the following process, the car went into mass production in 1938. Thus, Beetle became the most produced car in a single segment in the world. Due to its small and compact structure, the car received the nickname "Käfer", which means "Beetle" among the German people. In the following years, the name plate of the car in the international market was changed to "Beetle".


The Features of the Volkswagen Beetle

In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Volkswagen Beetle. We can start with the exterior design of the Volkswagen Beetle. Since the first years of its production, the Beetle had a compact and tiny design. So much so that it even got its name because it was known in this way among the people. However, the design used when the car was first designed was created due to the demand for low-cost public car. Automotive industry and design trends have changed over the years. Therefore, Beetle also adapted to changing conditions and renewed its design concept. The new generation Beetle has a much larger and stronger design than previous generations. Preserving its compact body lines and modernizing the details on it, the concept enables Beetle to adapt to the new generation automotive age without losing its characteristic features. Now, we are moving on to the interior design of the Volkswagen Beetle. There are no very striking details in the interior design of the car. The cabin layout is quite standard and carries the classic details of Volkswagen. Customizable colour scheme and spacious interior are some of the Beetle's cabin details that offer drivers and passengers the most advantages. In addition, ergonomic seats and the attractive atmosphere of the car are other factors that can be said about the cabin.


The Fuel Consumption of the Volkswagen Beetle

Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Volkswagen Beetle. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That is why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Volkswagen Beetle has got four standard engine varieties such as 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI, 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TSI. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is 2.0 TDI. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1968 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 110 HP and 3500 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 2.0 TDI has got a 4,9lt/100km (which refers to 58 MPG in the UK) mpg performance in Urban usage. However, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 3,8lt/100km (which refers to 74 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as Highways or Long-Distance Trip. When we combine these mpg data, we get a 4,2lt/100km (which refers to 67 MPG in the UK) average mpg performance. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is 2.0 TSI. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1984 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 220 Horsepower and 4500 RPM Torque. 2.0 TSI has got an 8,5lt/100km (which refers to 33 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG rate decreasing to 5,5lt/100km (which refers to 51 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 6,6lt/100km (which refers to 43 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption data.
