No other car has fascinated people as much as the Beetle, and now the icon is back, just maybe not as expected – powerful, dynamic and with corners and edges.
The newly designed front end lends the Beetle a self-confident look. The air intakes in the bumper coupled with the Bi-xenon headlights give it an unmistakable Volkswagen face. With a choice of colours and alloy wheels you can make your Beetle look as creative as you like.
There are a number of features included for your convenience, such as the two cup holders incorporated into the centre console and allowed plenty of storage space too. The handy glovebox, unique 'Beetle' storage compartment in the dashboard and the front centre armrest with storage compartment provide a space for all your travel essentials.
Manual air conditioning, electric front windows, front height-adjustable seats with cloth upholstery in 'Izzy' design and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors.
There is also a multifunction computer with visual gear change recommendation for improved fuel consumption and an RCD 310 DAB digital radio/MP3 compatible CD player with eight speakers for crystal clear radio reception all come as standard from the base model.
Parking sensors, both front and rear, assist in parking manoeuvres by emitting both audible and visual signals, alerting the driver to any obstacles: the closer you are to an obstacle the faster the sound frequency.
The optional three dial 'Sport' instrument panel on the dashboard is a particularly distinctive feature showing information about oil temperature and turbocharger boost, as well as the multifunctional stopwatch that can measure the journey time and time stopped.
A 400 watt, 8 speaker Fender system with sub-woofer redefines what car audio sounds like. A further highlight of the soundpack on the Beetle is the ambient lighting around the speakers and door panels, which can switched to blue, red or white lighting depending on your mood, creating an incredibly relaxed atmosphere.
