The 'new' Beetle was the car that started the retro trend when it was introduced in 1999, two years before the MINI came along. In terms of looks, it's very much in the same vein as the original model with a similarly distinctive rounded profile.

The entry-level model is the Luna which is available with 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre engines. It comes with ABS, remote central locking, an alarm and engine immobiliser, electric front windows, driver and passenger seat height adjustment, height and reach adjustable steering, a CD stereo, folding rear seat backrest, heated and electrically adjustable mirrors, 16-inch alloys and ESP stability control.

1.9 TDI models get air conditioning and 16-inch steel wheels while the 2.0-litre models upgrade to alloys. The 1.8T gets a speed-dependant spoiler, front fog lights and a leather steering wheel and gear lever. The V5 has 17-inch wheels and a boot-mounted six-CD changer.
