Wattayah Motors, the exclusive distributor of Volkswagen in Oman has announced the arrival of the iconic Beetle Cabriolet in Oman. The iconic cabriolet is available in an Exclusive trim.

Andrew Squires, General Manager of Volkswagen Oman said, “The new Beetle Cabriolet is an affordable and sporty convertible with a dynamic drive – delivering 210 HP to achieve the classic 0 – 100 km/h in just 7.3 seconds. The Beetle Cabriolet’s iconic design offers both style and comfort and is ideal for taking in Oman’s winter climate and famously stunning coastlines”.

Just as impressive as the performance and driving experience is new car’s fully automatic soft-top, which can be closed in just 9.5 seconds, with minimal noise - even while the vehicle is moving at speeds of up to 50 km/h.

The Cabriolet is available in Oman in the ‘Exclusive’ trim, which features stylish interior details including ‘Beetle Exclusive’ leather for the driver and front passenger sports seats, a leather seat mid-section and sides; and carpet floor mats with colourful edging in both the front and rear. The ‘Exclusive’ trim also features scuff plates in door apertures and is equipped with 20-inch ‘Monterey’ alloy wheels

Combining fun, comfort and a dynamic drive, the new Beetle Cabriolet also boasts a classic Fender sound system - with 400 watts of pure power, a digital 10-channel amplifier, nine speakers and a subwoofer to produce the exclusive Fender sound – and ample space, with the four-seater model offering a boot capacity of an impressive 225 litres.

The powerful Fender sound system is operated from the new second generation, Volkswagen infotainment system, featuring touchscreens as standard equipment. The display utilises capacitive touch sensor (similar to smartphone and tablet technology) enabling gesture controls like swiping and pinch-zooming with proximity sensors, and USB and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.

Featuring the three major smartphone integration platforms – Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®, the in-car infotainment system allows seamless integration with the vast majority of smartphones available today.

The new Beetle Cabriolet is now available at Volkswagen dealerships across the Sultanate and also sports bright new colours, including ‘Habanero Orange’, and ‘Blue Silk’. The soft-tops will be available in two colours – ‘Nutria Beige’ and ‘Black Canvas’.
