Introducing the brand new Volkswagen Beetle! Available to order from October 2011 and available for delivery from April 2012. At launch, two engines will be available: a 1.2 litre TSI 105 PS DSG and a 1.4 litre 160 PS TSI.
The fantastic Beetle is lower, longer and wider than its immediate predecessor, giving it a much more dynamic and sporty presence. Its shape, which has more in common with the classic Beetle than the 1998 car, is a modern reinterpretation of the original Beetle.
There has been a great leap forward in technology, with new engines emitting much less CO₂ than the previous model and features such iPod connectivity and Bluetooth phone preparation now available.
Available in 3 trim levels: Beetle, Design Beetle and Sport. The 1.2 litre Beetle and Design trims are available from £16,490. The 1.4 litre Design and Sport trims are available from £19,470. Three other engines – a 1.6 litre TDI BlueMotion 105 PS, 2.0 litre TDI 140 PS and 2.0 litre 200 PS will be joining the Beetle line-up towards the end of 2012.
The standard Beetle trim comes with air conditioning, remote central locking, an RCD 310 CD system with DAB radio and rear Isofix seat preparation.
The mid-level Design trim adds 17 inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth telephone preparation, multi-device interface iPod connectivity, front fog lights, an alarm, leather steering wheel and body-coloured dashboard.
The top of the range Sport specification adds 18 inch alloy wheels, tinted glass, cruise control, sports seats, parking sensors, gloss black door mirrors, dashboard and door panel and climate control.
The Beetle will be available with additional optional extra’s including, satellite navigation systems, panoramic sunroof, bi-xenon headlights and the Fender sound pack, offering 400W output and a subwoofer.
