For 2017, the playful Beetle retains only the 170-horsepower, four-cylinder turbo engine paired with a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. A Dune cabriolet joins the jacked-up coupe of the same name introduced in 2016, and 200 units of the #PinkBeetle (with metallic fuchsia paint) will be sold in Canada this year. The more masculine Denim edition returns too, as does the Classic, which now replaces the Comfortline trim level. The entry-level version is still the Beetle Trendline.
