Volkswagen Beetle Gas Mileage

Orange Beetle

It’s well known that the Volkswagen Beetle is a stylish vehicle that turns heads all over Des Moines, but what does it offer in terms of performance? You might be surprised by the impressive 2019 Volkswagen Beetle gas mileage! This iconic vehicle proves it’s more than just a pretty face with its turbocharged engine and efficient technology under the hood.


The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle is equipped with a 2.0 TSI® engine, larger than previous generations, which strikes the perfect blend of power and efficiency. You’ll enjoy 174 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque with every press of the pedal, which will bring plenty of pep to your Urbandale commute. Does that mean that your fuel efficiency suffers? Not at all. The Volkswagen Beetle gas mileage is an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Think of how much you’ll save in annual fueling costs!


Paired with the excellent engine, you’ll find a 6-speed automatic transmission with signature Volkswagen technology.

  • Want to enjoy stress-free driving during your Urbandale travels? Stay in automatic mode for seamless shifting without lifting a finger.
  • Want extra control? Tiptronic® mode switches into manual mode, so you can take shifting into your own hands.
  • Want to get your adrenaline pumping? Pop into Sport mode for a bolder, more athletic driving experience.


The Volkswagen Beetle is also outfitted with tons of high-tech amenities that make your driving experience better than ever. See how Volkswagen technology can enhance your time behind the wheel:

  • Available Bi-Xenon headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights provide brilliant light to aid in visibility, while utilizing modern LED technology for better efficiency.
  • The built-in Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts you when your tires are running low on air, so you can get the best performance and mileage out of every set.
  • Available VW Car-Net® Guide & Inform fetches up-to-date information with just the tap of a screen, so you can find instant traffic reports and navigation information without missing a beat.
