Volkswagen has introduced a special edition package for the Beetle in India. The carmaker has not announced the prices of it yet, but will soon start offering this cosmetic upgrade through select dealerships.
Coming to the styling updates, the carmaker is providing some cosmetic enhancements that add more to the Beetle’s sporty appeal. Twin racing stripes can be had in the form of decals on the bonnet and boot-lid. The ‘Heritage Beetle side stripe’ and 17-inch alloys in gun-metal finish reiterate the sporty credentials of this special edition Beetle.
Since it’s just a special edition, no mechanical changes have been made to the car. Powering the Beetle is an in-line four-cylinder 1,395cc petrol TSI mill producing 148bhp and 250Nm of torque and comes mated to seven-speed automatic DSG transmission.
The VW Beetle in its current generation was launched in December 2015 in India. It is available in a single variant and offered in four colours – habanero orange, oryx white, tornado red and blue silk. We hope this special edition will help the company to boost sales of the car that have slowed down.
