Beetle Convertible and Jetta Hybrid for 2013

The Jetta will be the first compact hybrid offered by the automaker, as well as the first hybrid in the world to use a 7-speed DSG duel-clutch transmission. Without revealing the cost, Volkswagen claims that it will be competitively priced with other hybrid sedans.

The Beetle Convertible will showcase a fast-acting retractable top, consistent with the sleek lines of the coupe. The engine lineup will include a 2.5 L, a Turbo 2.0 L as well as a 2.0 L TDI diesel. The automaker has confirmed that both these models will join the Volkswagen roster in 2013.

All Volkswagen 2012 models will be slightly modified, except for the Routan, which will remain unchanged.
