The iconic Volkswagen Beetle hatchback is sportier than ever before – and its contemporary styling and retro-chic edge remains as eye-catching as always
This trendy, three-door hatch knows how to make an impression. Curvy proportions, a sweeping roofline and body-coloured bumpers create a dynamic appearance. From any angle, you know this is a Beetle. Bold wheel arches and bright trim details provide additional stand-out appeal, as do sleek black door handles. Upgrade
to from the entry-level to Design and you get 17-inch alloys, while the rugged Dune level gives you raised suspension and a go-anywhere attitude. The range-topping R-line is the sportiest of the lot, with extra-muscular front and rear bumpers and a ducktail spoiler.
With all models, you’ll have a host of wheel and paint finish options to suit your style – including Tornado Red, Blue Silk Metallic and Pure White. You can really make this model your own.
The premium feel continues in the four-person cabin, which seamlessly combines tradition and modernity. The handsome metal-effect dashboard colour matches the exterior paint, with contrasting colours available as an optional extra. The telescopic, three-spoke steering wheel is multifunctional and stylish, and comes with a leather trim with some trim levels. An intelligent layout puts in-car entertainment controls within easy reach.
For a compact car, there’s generous space for front and back passengers, plus more boot space than ever before. 310 litres of capacity rises to 905 litres when you flip down the rear seats. Meanwhile, adjustable seats in the front provide additional comfort.
The engine range comprises four refined units – two petrol and two diesels. The entry-level model comes with the turbocharged 104bhp 1.2-litre petrol unit only, which offers returns of 52mpg and hits 60mph in less than 11 seconds. Upgrade to the Design trim or above and you can choose the more powerful 148bhp 1.4-litre version. 0-60mph takes approximately nine seconds with this version. You can also opt for the 108bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine, with returns of 59mpg and a 0-60mph time of under 11 seconds. Move up to the Dune or R-Line trim to get the 148bhp diesel, which reduces the time to 8.9 seconds. Whichever you choose, you know your Beetle will perform in town and on the open road, thanks to its robust stature and compact size.
A full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating means you’re in safe hands with the Beetle. Rear ISOFIX child-seat mounting points, six airbags, speed-sensitive steering and Electronic Stability Control are fitted as standard for your peace of mind. Post-collision braking is an additional feature.
Even base-level models are generously equipped with technology to enhance your experience – including Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and dual-zone air conditioning. An intuitive 6.5-inch touchscreen, with the possibility of satellite navigation, puts major controls at your fingertips. The optional Car-Net App-Connect system allows you to show your smartphone’s display on the screen via USB.
