It looks as though Volkswagen is eager to give fans more this year, as they recently announced changes to their 2013 Beetle Turbo, Beetle Turbo Convertible, and Jetta GLI which are scheduled to be released in their half-model year.

Although torque remains unchanged at 207 pound-feet, the new horsepower rating of 210 means that the Beetle Turbo can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 6.6 seconds, while the Jetta GLI can hit the same mark in 6.7 seconds, according to Volkswagen. VW says the new capabilities extend to fuel efficiency also, with expectations of a four to eight percent increase in city and combined fuel economy for the new models.

In addition to these larger changes are some modifications to the exterior of the vehicles- the Beetle Turbo is now available with a separate R Line package that includes new R Line bumpers, a diffuser at the rear, and 19-inch Tornado wheels, while the Jetta GLI is equipped with LED taillamps. No increase in price on the Jetta GLI has yet been announced either.
