Sold exclusively in the U.S., the new special edition will be limited to 2,000 units and all of them will have a dark blue soft top with a new denim-like textured fabric. Customers will have to choose between a Stonewashed Blue and a Pure White exterior paint scheme.

The interior will feature a bespoke light blue & silver theme with jeans-inspired seat pockets and red Beetle flags. In addition, the cars will come with light blue denim-color cloth upholstery with dark blue leatherette accents and white piping.

Power is provided exclusively by a turbocharged 1.8-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine developing 170 bhp (126 kW) and 184 lb-ft (249 Nm) of torque sent to the road through a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Volkswagen of America labels the Beetle Convertible Denim as a value model and mentions it will have as standard the MIB II infotainment system featuring a five-inch touchscreen display. It has support for USB and AUX, SD card slot, and Bluetooth connectivity. There’s also a rearview camera hooked up to the screen and buyers will have the possibility of connecting an iPhone or an iPod to the infotainment system.

The 2016 Beetle Convertible Denim can be had from $25,995 MSRP, without taking into account the additional $820 for destination and handling fees.
