April has been a busy, interesting, eye-opening, frustrating, educational and a few other adjectives that I really don’t want to share on the web kind of month. Although I have all these mixed reactions towards April, of course I managed to slice out some time to have fun in the city. Meeting with friends over awesome Korean food in the Annex, going to a concert at The Drake Hotel and oh yeah, getting to try out a 2013 VW Beetle TDI.
During the Canadian International Autoshow I checked out the Beetle Fender edition and learn more about the collaboration between Volkswagen and Fender. The Beetle Fender inspired by the curves and styling of a classic Fender guitar; from the sunburst dashboard to the magnificent Fender Premium sound system, 18″ disc alloy wheels, black Uni and deep black pearl (exclusive to the Beetle Fender) and many more little upgrades. Volkswagen is the only automaker that offers the Fender Premium Audio System with eight speakers, a subwoofer, and a 400-watt amplifier. This is as close as anyone can get to a live sounding audio system on the road.
Over the weekend I checked out the VW Freedriving Tour in Toronto and gave 2012 Beetle a try on their closed course. I can’t wait to see the video they have of me freaking out about the “ice surface” area of the course. The car itself was a joy to drive, powerful, spunky and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprise to see that the beetle was one of the most popular cars being tested by the VW car fans. Here’s a video I took of my mom giving the Beetle a go. She loved the car! Check back soon for updates on this posts with more videos of our driving day, mean times sign up for a day of fun with Volkswagen Canada on the Freedriving Tour website! Solmaz
