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.

Designed for sale in states like California with green emissions standards, the 2009 Volkswagen Beetle S PZEV runs on a low-emissions 2.5-liter, five-cylinder PZEV (Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) powerplant, which produces 150 hp and 170 lb-ft torque. The engine links to either a five-speed manual transmission, which comes standard, or an optional six-speed automatic transmission with the Tiptronic manual shift feature and a Sport mode. Fuel economy numbers for the five-cylinder engine check in at 20/28 mpg with the manual transmission and 20/29 with the automatic. The VW Beetle S PZEV handles well, thanks to its power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, and exhibits minimal body roll in tight corners, due to its suspension, which features McPherson struts in the front and a torsion-beam rear axle with an integrated stabilizer bar. An anti-slip regulation system, an electronic stabilization program, and antilock brakes with brake assist are among the Beetle's many safety and performance features.

Inside, the '09 Beetle S PZEV comes well-equipped with such standard features as five-level heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, cruise control, air conditioning, and remote keyless entry with a folding key fob. V-Tex leatherette upholstery comes standard throughout the cabin. The front seats adjust manually, while the steering wheel tilts and telescopes for driver convenience. The doors lock automatically at 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 Beetle's six-speaker AM/FM audio system includes a CD player, Sirius satellite radio, and an MP3 input jack. Outside, features include heated power exterior mirrors and heated windshield wiper nozzles. The '09 VW Beetle S PZEV rides on 16-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires.

Volkswagen equips the 2009 Beetle S Convertible with a number of unique features not found on the base Beetle S hardtop coupe, including an automatic rollover protection system, which consists of two steel beams residing under the back headrests. If the system detects a rollover, it instantly deploys the beams to help minimize passenger injuries. The relatively new, power-operated soft convertible top features a glass rear window with a defrost function to help ensure good visibility out the back. Body-color bumpers, daytime running lights, heated washer nozzles, and heated exterior mirrors come standard outside, while inside the '09 Beetle S Convertible includes such features as heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, cruise control, dual power outlets, and a 10-speaker AM/FM audio system with a CD player, Sirius satellite radio, and an MP3 input jack. Remote keyless entry also comes standard. In addition, the Beetle S Convertible includes an automatic locking feature, which locks doors when the vehicle reaches 8 mph to ensure passenger safety. The doors unlock automatically if the airbags deploy.

Volkswagen offers the 2009 Beetle S PZEV Convertible in states such as California, which have green emissions standards in place. The Beetle S PZEV Convertible's low-emissions, 2.5-liter, five-cylinder PZEV (Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) engine produces 150 hp and 170 lb-ft torque, and connects to a six-speed automatic transmission with the Tiptronic manual shift feature and a Sport mode. The EPA estimates fuel economy numbers for the PZEV engine at 20/28 mpg. In addition to its low-emissions engine, the Beetle S PZEV Convertible comes equipped with a semi-automatic, power-operated soft convertible top with a glass rear window, which has a defrost function to ensure good visibility.
