The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the most recognizable cars off all time, but it's iconic style is just part of the reason that Austin-area drivers love the Bug. It is inherently thrilling and comes packed with amazing features.

What sets the Volkswagen Beetle apart from competitors like the Honda Fit?

Performance

The Volkswagen Beetle is more versatile than the Honda Fit. It has more horsepower, 174, and torque, 184 pound-feet, than the Honda Fit, which musters 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. Cedar Park drivers will enjoy each drive when they're behind the wheel of the Volkswagen Beetle.

In terms of transmission, the Volkswagen Beetle also comes out on top. It has a 6-speed automatic transmission, but you can switch to Tiptronic mode, which gives you control by allowing for manual shifting. The Honda Fit features either a continuously variable transmission or a manual, but you're stuck with whichever one you choose.

Features

Convenient features in the Volkswagen Beetle make for a simpler, more relaxing drive. Blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and park pilot take the guess work out of previously perilous driving scenarios. Ambient lighting helps to set the mood for any type of drive. The available Fender® Premium Audio System gives crisp sound quality to whatever soundtrack you're driving to. Round Rock car-shoppers won't find any of these features in the Honda Fit.

Another area the Volkswagen Beetle separates itself is availability. Each trim level can be outfitted with available options like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability. With the Honda Fit, Georgetown drivers will have to start at higher trim levels to find those features.
