Final Edition models get their own special colors reminiscent of vintage hues, like the Stonewashed Blue pictured here.

Also on hand are these nifty 18-inch wheels.

If the Final Edition isn't your jam, the Beetle is still offered in S and SE guises.

All 2019 Beetles are powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The turbo engine pushes out 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. That's not a crazy amount of power, but it's adequate motivation for zipping through traffic.

If you're looking for other driving aids, however, you're out of luck. Given the car's age, it doesn't get any modern tech like adaptive cruise control or lane-keeping assist.

However, blind-spot monitoring is standard, helping to mitigate that canvas expanse over your shoulder when the top is up.

Even with the top back, wind buffeting is kept to a minimum. It's quiet enough to have a phone conversation using Bluetooth.
