If you are in the market for a VW in Scottsdale, you are just in time. A new collection of turbocharged Volkswagen Jettas and Beetles have started to show up in dealerships recently. Volkswagen has rolled out updates to both its Beetle turbo and Jetta GLI, bestowing them with new engines and better MPGs.

The Volkswagen Jetta GLI, Beetle turbo, and 2013 Beetle have been updated with a Gen 3 EA888 engine, which is a 4-cylinder 2-liter turbocharged engine that offers drivers 210 horsepower, a small boost over the current 200-horsepower offering. With the new engine, these vehicles will also see an increase in their mileage ratings. According to Volkswagen, the Beetle Turbo will be two-tenths of a second faster shuttling from 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds.

In addition to the new engine, the VW Beetle Turbo and Beetle Turbo Convertible both receive new R-Line bumpers. These feature grained black surfaces and chrome-framed turn signals at the front and a diffuser at the rear. The Jetta GLI is also upgraded with LED taillights on all three trims.

The Beetle Turbo R-Line model comes equipped with sunroof, sound, and navigation. Externally, the R-Line model is differentiated by the more aggressive front and rear bumpers, 19-inch ‘Tornado’ aluminum-alloy wheels, R-Line badging, and Bi-Xenon headlights with LED DRLs. Inside, the R-Line model features custom stainless-steel kick plates, a steering wheel badge, and a unique ‘chrome vanadium’ dashboard panel.
