The 2017 VW Beetle comes refreshed for the model year with a host of interior and exterior changes. One of the largest changes inside the Beetle comes in the form of technology.

In addition to a new look, the Beetle family sees the addition of the Classic, Pink Beetle Coupe, Convertible, and Dune Convertible models. Read on for an overview of the updates available for the 2017 Beetle!
