VW Beetle Dune will arrive in early 2016

Article by Christian A., on July 2, 2014

The latest version of the VW Beetle Dune Concept was unveiled back in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and made quite a buzz. As a result, Volkswagen will launch a production version of the concept car and according to Car Magazine, it will hit the dealerships in early 2016.

The new vehicle was approved by Volkswagen board in May 2014 and we expect to be similar to its concept version. The new Beetle Dune will arrive with an increased ground clearance (50 mm) and with a 29 mm stretched track.

Still, the difference between the Dune and base Beetle will be almost exclusively visual. The concept version was powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that produces 210 hp delivers the power to the wheels through the six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Regarding the price, we expect the new version to be a little more expensive than the regular Beetle. What’s more interesting is that Volkswagen will also offer a convertible version of the Beetle Dune.
