Moving with the times
Wherever the Beetle goes, curious glances follow - all thanks to its bold appearance. This is due primarily to the look of the front and rear bumpers. The combined parking, brake, turn signal and tail light is a unique feature at the rear, as is the rear spoiler. And finally a broad range of colours, with shades like Tornado Red or White Silver Metallic, ensure that every appearance is an impressive one.
Customised for comfort
Inside, the Beetle pays homage to its roots: a compact instrument cluster with a round dial in the centre evoke memories of the classic Beetle. The modern design of the numbers makes it easier for drivers of the Beetle to read the instrument cluster, as well as on the dashboard instrumentation.
Air vents and state-of-the-art infotainment features have, of course, been seamlessly integrated into the dashboard. One thing hasn't changed though: the high-quality finish of the materials used.
Space for everyone
More room for more everyday practicality: the Beetle offers ample space for your plans and ideas - plus three charming passengers. Its dynamic silhouette produces an entirely new sense of spaciousness in the interior. The result is a clearer view out of the vehicle, more luggage space and plenty of headroom for passengers in the rear too.
Both inside and out.
Tone-on-tone is the best option for an elegant look. Just like the Beetle, whose specially developed steering wheel trims match the exterior paint finish. What's more, they blend in harmoniously with the rest of the cockpit design, helped by a dashboard and door panels that are finished in the same colour as the vehicle too.
Climatronic air conditioning
Two preferences, two settings.
The 'Climatronic' air conditioning system allows you to select your favourite temperature - and so can your front passenger, as the 2-zone control allows the temperature to be adjusted individually for the left and right sides. Meanwhile, the air quality sensor ensures the best possible air quality in the passenger compartment despite congested traffic.
The panorama sliding/tilting glass roof in the Beetle covers the entire front area and fits elegantly into the roof. Tinted and insulated, it reflects 99% of ultraviolet radiation and 92% of heat, helping to prevent problems associated with glare and over-heating. At the touch of a button, the glass element can be tilted or partially or fully opened using the electrical lifting and sliding function. So you always have the choice between enjoying some fresh air or sheltering from the elements.
Musical accompaniment for out and about
MP3/CD drive, SD card slot, AUX-IN media socket, Diversity window aerial and eight loudspeakers - the "Composition Colour" radio system ensures that musical enjoyment comes as standard in the Beetle.
Now here's a bright idea: The Beetle has bi-xenon headlamps that illuminate the road ahead with brilliant white light, while consuming less energy than conventional bulbs. The LED daytime running lights also ensure that you always remain visible in all conditions.
The Beetle has thought of everything where safety is concerned: the standard Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) ensures excellent handling characteristics even in difficult situations. By intervening in the braking system and engine management with lightning speed, the system helps the Beetle to stay on course with masterful ease. Another feature is the hill hold control - it governs the starting torque when pulling away on an uphill gradient and interacts with the hydraulic brake assist and the transmission control to prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards by applying the brakes.
