Used Volkswagen Beetle Dune Coupe (2016 - 2018) Equipment

Review by Christofer Lloyd on
2.5
The standard Volkswagen Beetle is a car that prioritises design over practicality. The Dune version, however, ups the ante, boasting suspension that has been raised by 10mm plus chunky unpainted plastic body mouldings and silver skid plates at both ends – all in the name of style.

Equipment

You’d expect the Beetle to share a similar haul of equipment to the more sensible Golf hatchback, however the latter gives you more equipment – including sat-nav – and a much more powerful engine for less money. As a result, the standard kit that comes on the Dune feels very stingy.

You do get handy automatic headlights and wipers, front and rear parking sensors, an armrest plus a 6.5-inch touchscreen media system but that’s about it. Everything else is cosmetic.

Volkswagen throws in 18-inch alloy wheels and the suspension is 10mm higher than the standard car, though this provides no tangible benefit to customers. It’s the same story for the numerous exterior trim tweaks that set the Dune apart; some drivers will love these but others will hate them.
