Beetle

The icon returns

ot every sixties icon looks as good in the 21st century.

No other car has ever fascinated people quite as much as the Beetle, as its countless nicknames around the world testify, even in the remotest locations. Now the iconic Beetle is back, reinvented for the 21st century. More powerful, more dynamic, more exciting than ever before, equipped with cutting edge technology, new levels of interior comfort and a host of options to suit your individual taste. One thing hasn’t changed, however, it still makes you smile.




Once upon a time it was the car for everybody. Today it’s the car for you.

The Beetle has always been unique. But now it’s as individual as you want it to be. Design and Sport models build over the already well-equipped entry level Beetle, providing additional style and sportiness, while optional extras such as satellite navigation, a panoramic glass sunroof and keyless entry allow you to individualise it even further. 

The Beetle marks the start of the future of the most famous car in the worl. The new generation updates the classic design of the original Beetle and combines it with the technology of the 21st century. The highest quality standards and everyday practicality guarantee that the Beetle still draws attention even after 7 decades. Sporty and more dynamic, the longer bonnet, the more steeply angled and set-back windscreen and the flatter roofline give the Beetle a supreme air of sportiness. The new interior creates an agile, driver-oriented coupe experience and a significantly greater sensation of space for everyone.

The dashboard is both refined and ergonomically well designed, with the stunning ‘Gloss Black’ finish complementing the interior and also highlighting the unique ‘Beetle’ storage compartment. Relevant information such as current and average consumption figures, average speed, range, distance travelled, the time and outside temperature can be viewed on the multifunction display during the journey. And to maximise your comfort and enjoyment, we thought you’d appreciate loads of great features, such as front electric windows, driver’s and front passenger’s seat height adjustment, easy entry sliding seats (for access to rear seats) and height and reach adjustable steering wheel. Hill hold function is a convenient addition which, for approximately 2 seconds, prevents your Beetle from rolling back when pulling away on a gradient during a hill start.

Safety

The redesigned Beetle defines Volkswagen’s commitment to provide the highest level of protection for you and your passengers. The chassis, for example, is strengthened at important points across the bodywork. Such joints absorb energy, and help keep the inner protective cell intact following a collision.

In addition to front airbags, with the passenger’s airbag deactivation switch, the driver and front passenger have the reassurance of a combined head and side airbag system, front seat belts and whiplash-optimised front head restraints which help lower the risk of whiplash injuries in the event of an accident. The two rear passengers are protected by three-point seat belts and height adjustable head restraints.

In fact, there are numerous electronic features that are constantly monitoring and assessing driving situations and they are ready to react in milliseconds should the need arise. Such features include the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist) to prevent the wheels from locking, and ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme), utilising EDL (Electronic Differential Lock) and ASR (Traction Control) to help correct oversteer, understeer and loss of stability of the vehicle. We believe that prevention is the safest form of protection. And when you feel safe, you can enjoy the touring experience of the Beetle even more.
