The entry-level Beetle comes with aircon, remote central locking, a DAB radio, rear ISOFIX seat preparation and a rear spoiler.

All models also come with ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme) including brake assist and hill hold features, numerous airbags as well as a rollover protection system which pops up from behind the rear head restraints in milliseconds if a crash is detected.

Move up to Design trim and you get 17-inch alloys, Bluetooth preparation, iPod connectivity, front fog lights, an alarm, a CD radio, a multifunction leather-wrapped steering wheel and body-coloured door and dashboard panels as standard.

The Design trim will be the most popular specification on the Beetle line-up and it is expected to be around 30 per cent of all sales.

Move to the range-topping Sport trim and you also get 18-inch alloys, cruise control, sports seats, parking sensors, gloss black door mirrors, dashboard and door panels, dual-zone electronic climate control and additional sports instrument dials.
