Volkswagen absolutely values the safety for passengers in its vehicles, and it certainly shows with the superb safety features in the 2016 Beetle Convertible. The starting point in the Beetle’s safety armory is a very rigid body structure that uses ultra-high-strength, hot-formed steels in the crash-load paths and seamless laser welds. Additional standard safety features include Electronic Stability Control (ESC), antilock disc brakes, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and Volkswagen's Car-Net telematics system.

Volkswagen's engineers made several structural modifications to the Beetle Convertible to help it retain the bold and purposeful stance of the Coupe. It has wider tracks and a longer wheelbase than the previous year's model, while the A-pillar’s interior bar is 0.5 mm thicker and made from ultra-high-strength hot-formed steel instead of cold-formed metal. Top up, the Beetle Convertible has an even lower roofline than the Coupe’s. Volkswagen decided to stick with a traditional softtop because it allows for a roofline that’s more like the original 1949 type 15’s. Also, a softtop takes up less space than a folding hardtop, thus giving more trunk space.
