So what have they engineers at VW done? Well the beetle still holds its original design but the designers have played around with the original shape to come up with a bolder, more dynamic, more masculine design as compared to the old beetle. To sum the design, it’s clean, self-confident and dominant sportiness.

The new car is 1,808 mm wide (84 mm wider), 1,486 mm tall (12 mm lower) and 4,278 mm long (152 mm longer) as compared to the previous model.

This has resulted in entirely new proportions. The gain in length meant that the roof could be extended further, the front windscreen could be shifted back, and the rear section could follow the contour of the original Beetle.
To sum it up, the development team increased the car’s track widths and wheelbase. All of cosmetic changes have resulted to the VW Beetle powerful and muscular appearance, phew!
|State of the art entertainment system|
|Its small heart|
The good news is that the beetle will be available with a turbodiesel engine. The 2.0 TDI (turbo diesel injection) produce a whooping 200bhp.
Married to it will be a six speed manual gear box. One can also choose from a dual clutch six speed automatic gear box.

This amazing engine can take this cute baby to a top speed of 200km/h. In terms of fuel consumption is 7.4 liters per 100 km. I can see a smile forming in someone’s face. The news even gets better.

They key features however in the entire three models range are Bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights. The 15 LEDs frame the xenon module on the outer perimeters of the headlights. They act as the daytime running lights and parking lights.
|Huge doors for easy access|
|Restyled and modern interior|
One can also choose a premium system that consists of illuminated speakers and an additional 400 watts subwoofer. The car also comes with Keyless entry which is operated without the ignition key.
When one of the front door handles is touched, the system detects access authorization from a transmitter carried in the person’s jacket, trousers or hand bag; it then unlocks the Beetle and enables an engine start via the engine start button. Locking of the Volkswagen is from the outside, also activated by touching one of the two door handles.
The shape and use of color in the painted or carbon-look front dashboard panel echoes the old design of the first VW Beetle.
Three round instruments arranged in front of the driver (tachometer, speedometer, and fuel gauge) provide all key information. At the center of each dial is a multifunction screen that provides even more information to the driver.
Four people can enjoy the fantastic ride from this cute car. It can even accommodate tall person thanks to its high roof. People will also enjoy enough storage space as it has now been extended to 310 liters from the previous 209 liters.
