The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle will see quite a few changes for this years model. The Base 2.5-liter engine is replaced by 170-hp 1.8-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine later in the 2014 model year. The fuel economy is predicted to improve by up to 17% with the new engine. VW Car-Net connectivity will become available. The VW Beetle Turbo will become the Beetle R-Line trim and in the top-of-the-line models a rearview camera will be fitted later in the year.

One of the biggest additions to the 2014 VW Beetle line up is the GSR as a limited-edition model. The GSR is a modern re-interpretation of the 1970s GSR (“Yellow Black Racer”). The body and the R-Line bumpers on the new GSR are predominantly yellow, the hood is mainly black, and the trunklid, roof, and the exterior mirror caps are all black. The new car has yellow/black stripes with “GSR” lettering above the side skirts and a large rear spoiler to complete the look. The car rides on 19-inch “Tornado” aluminum-alloy wheels shod with 235/40 tires and also features black-painted brake calipers. The GSR Beetle features a unique interior with a yellow/black theme, sport seats, and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel. The black-trimmed leather seating surfaces and high-grip leather-wrapped steering wheel both have contrasting yellow stitching. Other interior changes include a GSR shift lever, a leather-wrapped handbrake, and black floormats with contrasting yellow embroidery. A badge on the steering wheel is marked with the special-edition number (1 through 3500) to emphasize the uniqueness of the car.

The Beetle Turbo lineup becomes the R-Line for 2014.The top R-Line Sunroof and Sound with Navigation also features unique 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED DRLs, and leather seating surfaces; black interiors also get an R-Line badge on the steering wheel and a “metallic finish” dash pad. The Beetle R-Line models and the Beetle GSR are fitted with the latest version of the EA888 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which makes 210hp.

Among other changes to the 2014 Beetle, the TDI® with Sunroof model is removed from the lineup.
