Volkswagen presented the new Beetle Dune at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. The crossover model, which is reminiscent of the legendary Baja California dune buggies, is characterised by an eye-catching design with numerous off-road accents, large 18-inch wheels and a higher ride height.

The new Beetle Dune is a completely redesigned model that invites adventure. Its powerful character is emphasised by a large central air inlet – with a silver frame – and a black honeycomb screen. In side profile, the black wheel well and body add-on extensions are eye-catching in conjunction with the lighter body colours. In addition, black side trim strips (stylised “Beetle running boards”) and the “DUNE” badge underscore the dynamic image of the latest Beetle model. Its ground clearance was increased 10 millimetres to accentuate its all-terrain properties.

In Europe, the new Beetle Dune is available with three turbocharged petrol engines and two turbodiesels. The petrol engines produce 77 kW / 105 PS, 110 kW /150 PS and 162 kW / 220 PS; the diesel engines develop 81 kW / 110 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS.
