In a 2018 comparison test that included the Ford and Jeep, the 2019 Volkswagen Convertible Beetle placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2019 Volkswagen Convertible Beetle weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2019 Volkswagen Convertible Beetle, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking.
