The styling of the new Beetle is radically different from the older generations and it has a dynamic look. The car is built on the Golf body platform. The elongated bonnet in the front coupled with the low stance and the fact that the front windshield has been shifted back gives a flowing and aerodynamic look to the car. The front fascia is simple and minimalist in design and the bi-xenon headlights and daytime running lights are the main features here. Body colored electric outside rear view mirrors are the highlights of the side profile while 19 inch alloy wheels are available as optional upgrade. In spite of the changes, the company has maintained the essential design language of the Beetle.
The interior of the new Beetle continues the aggressive style statement. Three round dials are arranged in front of the driver. The electrically assisted multifunction steering wheel is the highlight of the dash. The interior of this two seater has a number of comfort and convenience features. The dual tone upholstery with red highlights has a sporty look and the leather wrapped seats are ultra comfortable. The driver seat can be adjusted electrically. The sunroof offers a panoramic view.
