Celebrating One Million Video Views and Cruising Top-down in a Yellow VW Beetle

We’re celebrating thefamilycar reaching one million video views, a milestone! As such, some shopping in a VW Beetle convertible with the top down seemed just the thing!

Radiant yellow outside, inside, the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle Dune edition’s passenger compartment is surprisingly wind free.

This V-dub is okay for two tall folks in front, as long as there are just two small folks in back. Four tall adults need to negotiate knee room carefully. Same as it ever was, with all Beetles, of any vintage.

This pretty Dune edition of the 2017 bug will free you of $30,465, about a grand over MSRP. And though it has a cleaner burning, and powerful, turbo-charged engine, it has rather uninspiring fuel economy, 27 MPG combined.

Lastly, TheFamilyCar co-editor, Wayback, aka Dean Adams Curtis, long drove a 1974 gold VW Super Beetle with sunroof, until it wouldn’t go anywhere anymore.¬† A flash of sun off the chrome of the yellow bug reminds him of those days, his way of celebrating our one million views!

Returning from his revelry, Wayback gives a high five to Volkswagen for continuing their classic model line with the fun looking 2017 VW Beetle Dune.
