Default VW ups Beetle Turbo power, prices new R-Line model

Leftlane: http://www.leftlanenews.com/vw-ups-b...ine-model.html

Volkswagen has announced several changes for its turbocharged, retro-inspired two-door for a minor mid-year upgrade.

All Beetle Turbos - both hardtop and convertible models - will gain a previously-detailed 210-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged engine (a 10 pony boost). Curiously, VW is offering the more powerful, lighter weight new engine in the 2013 Beetle Turbo range, meaning that there will be both 200 and 210-pony variants on dealership lots.

In addition, all 210-horsepower Beetle Turbos will also receive special R-Line bumpers with grained black surfaces and chrome-framed turn signals to help denote their more powerful status.

Beetle Turbo R-Line
Replacing the Beetle Turbo Sunroof, Sound and Navigation model, the R-Line arrives as a late 2013 model.

Although it will share the same new engine as the standard Beetle Turbo, the Beetle Turbo R-Line gains a handful of cosmetic and functional upgrades designed to enhance its image as a sporty coupe. Standard equipment includes 19-inch "Tornado" alloy wheels, R-Line badging, HID headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, stainless steel kickplates and a "chrome vanadium" panel for the dashboard.

So far, VW has only priced the hardtop version of its 2013 Beetle Turbo R-Line, which will list from $30,135 with a six-speed manual gearbox - a $935 premium over the defunct Sunroof, Sound and Navigation trim.
