  • MAX rank: 977 (+450)
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1230 (+253)
    • This was changed to 1252 (+170) in the Showdown Update
    • This was changed to 1049 (+211) in the Hot Winter Season Update

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[]

Note: The following sections are based on the Volkswagen Beetle's performance prior to the Showdown Update.

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.

(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 Licenses 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 Credits 75,000 to purchase and Credits 660,920 to MAX. However, the prices was originally decreased to Credits 26,000 and later increased to Tokens 180. It is also obtainable as a reward for reaching VIP Level 3. Should the player already have the car, the player will receive Credits 37,500 instead.

The Volkswagen Beetle Turbo was obtainable by reaching Tier 50 in the Arash AF8 Falcon Edition Car Hunt (1) event. Players who already owned the car would get 8x Wild Card - Common Wild Card - Common instead.

As of the Hot Winter Season Update, upgrades require 55 of each Common Tires Common Tires, Common Suspension Common Suspension, Common Drivetrain Common Drivetrain, and Common Exhaust Common Exhaust, 160 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Kit Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Kit, and Fusion Coins 800,000.

Starting from the Neon Season Update, upgrades for the VW Beetle Turbo can be obtained by watching ads.
