Following on from the successful Scirocco is another retro-inspired Volkswagen, the Beetle. Almost 22 million original Beetles were built, making it one of the most successful cars of all time.

Equipment

All models of Beetle come with plenty of equipment including air conditioning, DAB digital radio, alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel, connections for MP3 players, electric windows and mirrors, one-touch indicators, a trip computer, a CD player and remote central locking. Optional extras include satellite navigation, heated leather seats, keyless entry and start, a panoramic sunroof, bi-xenon headlights, an updated Fender sound system and parking sensors.

Customers can also specify an optional ancillary gauge pack, mounted on the dashboard, which includes an oil temperature gauge, boost gauge and chronometer for timing laps. Three trim levels are available – the standard Beetle, Design and Sport. Design trim adds upgraded exterior trim and wheels, Bluetooth, climate control and colour coordinated interior trim, while Sport trim adds options such as 17” wheels, a rear spoiler, piano black dash trims, parking sensors and black wing mirrors.

The higher trim levels also benefit from minor interior improvements such as aluminium and chrome detailing.
