2014 Volkswagen Beetle Questions and Answers


  • Bike Carrying Options for 2014 Volkswagen Beetle TDI Convertible
  • We do have a solution that would allow you to carry up to two bikes on your Beetle convertible, but after checking with all of our trunk mount bike rack vendors, I found that none of the trunk mount options we offer would be compatible with your TDI Convertible. Your best bet would be to install the Curt Class I hitch, part # C11354 and then use a 2 bike rack like the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63360. If you're planning on carrying women's bikes or bikes with a sharply angled top tube,...

  • Compatible Class I Trailer Hitch for 2014 Volkswagen Beetle R-Line Turbo
  • The trailer hitch you referenced, Curt # C11354, is a fit for the 2014 Beetle Coupe with gasoline turbo engine. The other two hitches offered from Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are indeed excluded from the R-Line version but the Curt will fit. The link provided will let you see all three hitches. Curt Class I hitch # C11354 installs without drilling. The written instructions are linked along with two helpful articles concerning hitch installation tips. If you intend to use the hitch...

  • Hitch Mount 2-Bike Carrier Recommendation 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
  • You will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership to find the maximum tongue weight capacity for your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle. I recommend the Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack, part # Y02457. This rack will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver and weighs 31 lbs. If you are carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # Y02531. This bar attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Gas Coupe
  • Yes, the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24922 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle gas coupe. There is no drilling required to install this hitch either. Draw Tite states that it should only take about 30 minutes to install this hitch. The Swagman XTC2, part # S64670 is one of the most popular racks because it's so easy to use, and because the rack has an angled shank that would raise the bike rack up by three inches providing additional ground clearance....

  • Bike Carrying Recommendations for 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
  • Because none of our trunk mount bike rack manufacturers offer a bike rack that's compatible with the Convertible Beetle model, you'll need to go with a hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24922 which is a fit for your vehicle, unless it's an 'R' model. I've linked you to the most popular hitch mounted bike racks among VW Beetle owners. The Swagman XTC2, part # S64670 is one of the most popular racks because it's so easy to use, and because...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
  • Yes there is, since hitch bike racks are preferred since they don't touch any painted surface of the vehicle like a trunk rack, and don't affect gas mileage like a roof mounted rack let's start with a hitch. For that you would want the Hidden Hitch part # 60354. This is a Class I hitch that will do well to carry up to two bikes. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive...

  • Availability of Roof Rack for 2014 Volkswagon Beetle with Panoramic Sunroof
  • At the present time there is no roof rack available for 2014 Volkswagon Beetle with a sunroof. I did speak with my contacts at Thule and Yakima. Our Thule representative said Thule did make one at one time, but it was discontinued because the feet were not holding correctly due to the shape of the roof. My Yakima contact said Yakima does not have a fit because of "installation difficulties due to potential rubber trim deformations with the Q Clips." He did say that VW offers a factory...

  • Can a Roof Mount Basket be Installed on a 2014 Volkswagen Beetle with Raised Side Rails
  • Surco makes a Safari basket that is designed to fit on side rails. There are a couple of different models that clamp to raised side rails depending on the vehicle. I have included a link to them for you. These baskets are designed for larger vehicles such as SUVs and could be too large for cars. In that scenario you would want to install a roof rack and then choose a compatible basket. If you have a 2014 Volkswagen Beetle though there are currently no roof rack options. So what you...
