The 2009 Volkswagen Beetle S comes equipped with a wide range of standard features, including a padded leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, air conditioning, cruise control, and remote keyless entry with a folding key fob. V-Tex leatherette upholstery and five-level heated front seats help keep passengers comfortable. The front seats adjust manually, while the steering wheel tilts and telescopes to accommodate drivers of different heights. An automatic locking feature locks doors when the vehicle reaches 8 mph to ensure passenger safety, although the doors unlock automatically if the airbags deploy. Storage spaces include an adjustable/fold front center armrest, a front seatback pocket, and front and rear cupholders. The clear, simple instrument layout will appeal to most owners, although some owners find the tachometer and audio controls too small. The six-speaker AM/FM audio system includes a CD player, Sirius satellite radio, and an MP3 input jack.

A 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine powers the 2009 VW Beetle S. The engine generates 150 hp and 170 lb-ft torque, and mates to a five-speed manual transmission, which comes standard, or an available six-speed automatic transmission with the Tiptronic manual shift feature and a Sport mode. The EPA estimates fuel economy numbers for the engine at 20/28 with the manual transmission and 20/29 with the automatic. Power-assisted rack and pinion steering helps ensure tight handling, while independent front McPherson struts and a torsion-beam rear axle with an integrated stabilizer bar keep body roll to a minimum in tight corners. An electronic stabilization program and antilock brakes with brake assist are among the Beetle's safety and performance features. In addition, an anti-slip regulation system helps prevent wheel slippage at all speeds. Heated power exterior mirrors and heated windshield wiper nozzles are among the Beetle's exterior features. The '09 VW Beetle S rides on 16-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires.
