Here is a funny VW Combi joke. “You know you are a VW Combi driver if you are pulled over by the bike patrol”. It made me giggle! Drive the New Beetle Miami, and you’ll be more than impressed with the way this little car can cover the ground.
Under the bonnet of the very safe and stylish New Beetle Miami is an engine that offers all the latest multi-point fuel injection engine advancements. The quality German brand knows how to build great cars, and the New Beetle Miami is another feather for their cap.
It is evident from the outset that the New Beetle Miami is a car with quite some class. The exterior package is a blend of racy lines, cheeky character and sporty overtones, and the New Beetle Miami interior is every bit as appealing with its unique flavors and appealing comfort levels. Soak it in! Driving the New Beetle Miami is a special experience.
You’ll find plenty to keep you amused on any long Australian journey. The New Beetle Miami has air conditioning, dust and pollen filters and a front centre armrest with an integrated storage compartment. Cruise control and cup-holders make the journey a relaxed and friendly affair, while boasting the best in safety features is a reminder of just how well the little Beetle is made.
Front driver and passenger airbags are standard. ABS and EBD is also standard equipment. Even the halogen headlights with clear lightweight polycarbonate lenses reveal the detail that Volkswagen has put into the New Beetle Miami safety credentials.
In-car entertainment features an AM/FM radio, a CD player with MP3 compatibility, an auxiliary input audio socket in the dashboard, high output speakers for the front and rear and a clear blue illumination feature for the dashboard display. The driver has a handy onboard computer that displays trip information, a service interval display, fuel gauge, low fuel warning light and a brake pad wear indicator. The roof/windscreen frame mounted digital clock and outside temperature display is clearly visible, and a focal point for conversation.
The outside wing mirrors are electrically heated and adjustable with integrated indicator lights. Just mentioning the fact that the New Beetle Miami offers plenty of storage doesn’t do it justice enough. There is excellent storage space right throughout the cabin – even roof mounted storage space. The Luna cloth material for the seats is very tactile and offers long-lasting elegance. If you would prefer leather, the option is available. Room for passengers in the rear is surprisingly good, and long legs are accommodated well. An electric sunroof is also an option for those who like the sun and the extra bit of “cool” factor.
Take the New Beetle Miami out to the open road, and the responsive 1.6 litre, petrol engine happily lopes along the road at highway speeds all day long. Overtaking slower traffic is a breeze, with the New Beetle Miami more than capable of putting on a turn of extra speed when required. Cruising about the city streets is easy too, as the steering is light and nimble – while the car’s dimensions are simple to park.
German quality is evident throughout the New Beetle Miami package. Each New Beetle Miami has excellent craftsmanship and fantastic engineering, and boasts a 3-year/100,000 km manufacturer’s warranty, which includes Volkswagen Assist (24hr roadside assistance). Every new Volkswagen passenger vehicle is also covered by a 3-year paintwork and 12-year anti-corrosion perforation warranty. In Australia, a large number of sales and servicing agents make Volkswagen ownership a soothing experience.
