Few days ago we revealed you the first sketches with Volkswagen’s new Beetle Dune Concept. Today, two new photos showing the real thing emerged on the Web and as usual we brought them to you. Set to make its official debut next week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept is a modern interpretation of the New Beetle Dune concept that was unveiled back in 2000 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

According to Volkswagen, this new concept is a version closer to production. The German manufacturer wants to see if the people do like the idea of a Beetle featuring a crossover cues such as underbody protections, flared wheel arches, black moldings and big alloy wheels.

Under the hood, there is the popular 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder petrol engine rated at 210 hp (154 kW), mated to a six-speed duel-clutch DSG gearbox. More details to be revealed when Volkswagen will officially introduce its new concept car.
