The Volkswagen Beetle Turbo TSI BLUEMOTION (A5) is a variant of the A5 Volkswagen Beetle compact car.

Description

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Summary

The Volkswagen Beetle Turbo is a low Class D car added in the Lunar New Year Update with the following rank statistics:

Performance

The Beetle is almost identical in performance to the Renault CLIO R.S. 200 EDC although faster by exactly 6.2 mph (10.0 km/h). Both cars, along with the Camaro Z/28, have performance-builds heavily based on that of the Audi R8 e-tron.

The Beetle's raw top speed is lower than cars like the Alfa Romeo MiTo GTA but higher than cars like the Renault DeZir. To make up for this, the Beetle has a relatively large but inefficient nitro. Overall, this makes the Beetle a weak car compared to the DeZir. However, the Beetle has a low starting rank like the DeZir, Ford F-150, SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI, and Camaro Z/28, so it benefits from a very large Tuning Kit bonus and the ability to be Multiplayer tuned.

Even with no acceleration upgrades, the Beetle has an unusually fast acceleration; faster than the F-150, DeZir, Impreza, and Camaro Z/28. The Beetle also has good handling and drifting. However, the F-150 is faster at low ranks while the DeZir, Impreza and Camaro Z/28 all have higher final ranks, making them faster at higher ranks. Acceleration is perhaps the Beetle's only advantage over these cars, although it does have a higher raw top speed than the F-150 and DeZir, meaning that if the Beetle knocks down either car, it has a chance of outrunning them.

Like all of the cars mentioned in the previous paragraph, the Beetle struggles to keep its nitro activated on rampless maps like Azure Coast.

Usage (Multiplayer)

In Multiplayer, the Beetle is one of the fastest vehicles in the game from around ranks 550-800. It is slower than the DeZir, F-150, and possibly the Impreza, but it has a chance of outrunning the Camaro Z/28. However, the Beetle has a nitro-based tune, instead of a dual nitro/raw top speed tune like the Camaro Z/28, so its raw top speed is lower. The Beetle will still inevitably run out of nitro on most maps except for San Diego Harbor, at some point, so Extra Tanks will help but they won't fully compensate for the bad nitro efficiency. The Beetle's nitro efficiency is lower than that of the F-150, Impreza, and DeZir but equal to the Camaro Z/28. Overall, these cars could be rated with the F-150 as the best, then the DeZir (the DeZir is arguably equal to the F-150), then the Impreza, Camaro Z/28, and the Beetle at the end. This makes the Beetle the 5th best car at low ranks, which, despite sounding bad, still makes the Beetle pretty competitive.

The Beetle's raw top speed is lower than the Camaro Z/28's while its nitro is equal; also, the Beetle's nitro weighting is lower while its top speed weighting is higher. Overall, this places it heavily in favor of a nitro-based tune, despite its bad nitro efficiency.

Some optimal Multiplayer tunes for the Beetle:

(Note: None of these have been tested; these are all theoretical ranks/speed values based on calculations made using the statistics and weightings of the vehicle. Therefore, speed values or ranks could be off by as much as 0.5 or 3, respectively.)

Usage (Other)

The Beetle is a poor choice as a Class D TLE vehicle or as a starter's car. However, it is sometimes the top car in special TLEs and Tag Racing TLEs, so it's still occasionally useful.

Overall, the Beetle is best used as a low-tier Multiplayer Vehicle. The Beetle has a very bad farming race in Test Site: Omega, Season 9.

The Beetle isn't featured in the Career Mode.

The Beetle has no outstanding Mastery Rewards. The Beetle isn't featured in any collections.

The Beetle is an easy source of A8Licenses with its cheap costs. However, it has potential as a Multiplayer Vehicle so this may not be the best usage of the vehicle.

A goal that is often given in the Daily Tasks, which asks for the player to play several Multiplayer races with a Volkswagen car, is easiest to complete with the Beetle since the other two Volkswagens in the game are very expensive and poor choices for Multiplayer.

Price

The Volkswagen Beetle Turbo originally costed A8Credits 75,000 to purchase and A8Credits 660,920 to MAX. However, the prices was originally decreased to A8Credits 26,000 and later increased to A8Tokens 180. It is also obtainable as a reward for reaching VIP Level 3. Should the player already have the car, the player will receive A8Credits 37,500 instead.

As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost A8Credits 342,000 while Pro Kits require A8Credits 113,600, 15 of each Class D Parts card, 10 Early & Initial Tech cards each and 8 i4 Engines.

The Beetle was part of the 24th and 25th Multiplayer Seasons, Bloom Season 2 and Burnout Season 2 respectively, as an Amateur League reward. Players who already had the Beetle would win A8Credits 10,000 instead.
