The crossover model, which is reminiscent of the legendary Baja California dune buggies, is characterised by an eye-catching design with numerous off-road accents, large 18-inch alloy wheels and a higher ride height and is making its debut as both a coupe and convertible.
The Beetle Dune is a completely redesigned model. The powerful character is emphasised by a large central air inlet, with a silver frame and a black honeycomb screen. In side profile, the black wheel well and body add-on extensions are stand out from the lighter body colours. In addition, black side trim strips and the ‘DUNE’ badge underscore the dynamic image of the latest Beetle model.
Its ground clearance is 10mm more than the standard model to accentuate its all-terrain properties.
On the inside, the Dash Pad styling panel on the dashboard, extensive contrasting stitching on the sport seats, leather-trimmed steering wheel and parking brake grip are in the body colour. In contrast, areas of the seat system, door trim panels, roof pillars and headlining are finished in black.
In Europe, the new Beetle Dune will be available with three turbocharged petrol engines and two turbodiesels.
