Next-generation Vw Beetle will be a radical design

Sources announced that the all-new Volkswagen Beetle to be launched at next year's Detroit Motor Show will have a "radical design." These company sources told Autocar that VW didn't stop with simply modifying the car's styling. The designers of the Beetle were very daring in their attempt to make a totally fresh, modern take on the classic VW.

Like the current Beetle, the car will be assembled at VW's Puebla plant in Mexico, alongside the next Jetta. These two models have the same front-drive underpinnings and several driveline combinations.

This provides the Beetle with a reworked chassis that has wider tracks and a longer wheelbase than today's model. Insiders claim that it will have better dynamics than the current model and will have a more compliant ride. Suspension is MacPherson struts at the front and a torsion beam at the rear. For improved handling, the 210bhp 2.0-litre range-topper will have a multi-link rear.
