2016 VW Beetle for its concept has been presented at the Detroit Auto Show last year. Volkswagen, the well-known German automaker also announced that the car will be the new version for 2016 model year. It is designed as the beach-popular car with off-road capability that has some redesigned parts. The design for its exterior will be refreshed based on the Dune Concept.
2016 VW Beetle will be built based on its concept so that there will be some redesign changes based on the new crossover architecture. It is still a bug but it is supported with new and excellent details for its bodywork to make it attractive. The fantastic part is the car will be more unique among its competitors. We do believe that the company will support it with new and cool features. The bodywork is featured with stretched wheel arch while the hood is raised to give higher ground clearance. The muscular lines are very unique in 2016 VW Beetle with the LED taillights, HID headlights and chrome-stripped vents. It also has five-spoke alloy wheels 19 inches but it seems it will be reduced to keep its unique look as the new 2016 VW Beetle.
Under the hood based on its concept, the company will support the car with the standard front-wheel drive system. The base version has 2.0 liter turbo in order to generate the output for about 210 horses and it is paired to six-speed dual-clutch auto transmission. With this engine, the fuel economy for 2016 VW Beetle will be about 23/29 mpg city/highway. In just 7.3 seconds, the car could sprint from 0 to 62 mph with the top speed about 141 mph. This engine will not be the only one for this new car. One thing for sure, the company will reveal more engine options soon to attract more buyers especially for the American market.
There will be some new features and designs added in this crossover-based car and you could choose whether you purchase the hatchback or the convertible. For the price tag, some rumors mentioned that the starting price will be €3800 more compared to the current model because the demand is getting higher in America. We do not know when it will be released so what we could do is waiting the announcement of 2016 VW Beetle.
