the North American International Auto
Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, it’s a world
premiere for the Volkswagen Beetle
Dune. The near-production concept car thrills with its robust off-road
looks, raised body and 19-inch tyres. Other cars premiered will be the all-electric
e-Golf and the new 300-PS Golf R.
the show highlight for the German car maker Volkswagen in Detroit is the Beetle
Dune. The car at the show features 'Arizona', yellow/orange metallic paintwork
and flared wheel arches offset in black. Unlike on the familiar Volkswagen Cross models, so-called 'blades'
(elements 1.5 millimetres thick) are fitted on top of the matt main sections.
Chrome-plated under-body protection and side trim strips on top of the sills,
which are based on the legendary running boards of the original Beetle,
underline the both classy and sporty overall impression. The interior -
featuring infotainment system and high-definition 7.7-inch touch screen--conveys
in addition a high level of technological fascination. The Beetle Dune is
powered by a 210 PS turbo petrol engine, which gives the concept car
acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds.
