Entry Level VW Beetle For UK
Broadening the range of new Volkswagen Beetle in UK, the German company announced launch of two new entry-level models powered by frugal engines.
Available to order from Volkswagen Retailers from today and ready for delivery to customers in January 2013 are the 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS with a six-speed manual gearbox (joining the DSG version of the same powerplant) and the 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS with BlueMotion Technology which is offered with either a five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission. Both entry level models are available in entry-level ‘Beetle’ or ‘Design’ trim.
The entry-level 1.2-litre TSI with manual gearbox is priced at £15,195 (RRP OTR), and the 1.6 liter £17,030 (RRP OTR). Come to think of it, these are the best deals you can get for a Beetle, because let’s be honest it’s just the looks you want not the engine or the extra garnish.
Details and pricing:
The Beetle was launched in the UK in March, with just one engine and trim level available. Since then a raft of new models have been added, with the latest two entry-level engine and gearbox combinations completing the range. Three standard trim levels – Beetle, Design and Sport – are now available, as well as the range-topping Turbo Black and Turbo Silver special editions. Customers can now choose from three petrol engines – a 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS with manual or DSG gearbox, a 1.4-litre 160 PS with manual transmission and a 2.0-litre 200 PS with manual or DSG gearbox; and two diesels – the 1.6-litre TDI 105 PS with BlueMotion Technology (Stop/Start and battery regeneration added) and the 2.0-litre TDI with 140 PS.
