Volkswagen debuts 2014 Beetle models at Chicago

Today the press will be able to get an early preview of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show and there are going to be some great debuts there, such as two new Volkswagen Beetle’s. These are the Limited-Edition 2014 Beetle GSR and the R-Line Beetle Convertible. However, there are also two GTI models that are already available to purchase, but the German car manufacturer thought it was a great opportunity to show them off today.

If we had to pick our favorite we’d have to say the GSR model because it has taken inspiration from the classic 1970s’ Beetle, and because it’s so special, Volkswagen thought that they would make this a powerful version by giving it a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, which produces 210 horsepower.

The 2014 Beetle GSR price is yet to be confirmed but we should know more before they hit the market in the fall. In-depth details can be found by heading over to Volkswagen’s press webpage.

While the new Convertible R-Line might not offer the same kind of performance as the GSR, there are still several updates that will make this an appealing model. First up there is the set of rather larger 19-inch rims and augment Bi-Xenon headlamps. There are no details on performance or pricing and availability just yet either.

Autoblog has all the details on the new 2013 Volkswagen GTI models, which is to have a limited run of just 3,000 units. However, we can tell you that prices range from $25,095-$29,695.
