Beetle mania in New York

VOLKSWAGEN has showcased four new versions of the stalwart Beetle at the New York International Auto Show.

VW has revealed four new versions of the legendary Beetle car, two new coupes and two cabriolets. The company has brought the bug into 2015 by further extending the Beetle line-up, and is offering a glimpse of the possible versions in the four concept cars.

The colour Blue sets the stage in the concept car range with the Beetle Cabriolet Denim. The colour scheme is designed to match your old jeans. And that it does! The Stonewashed Blue Metallic paint and soft top in dark blue with a special fabric texture, will give the impression you’re putting on an old pair of Levi’s.

The Beetle R-Line Concept1, on the other hand is a mark above the others. It clearly bends toward automotive sportiness, and is powered by a 2.0 TSI power train that produces 162 kW of pulling power that makes sure it goes as quick as it looks.

Also premiering at the show was the new Golf Alltrack. The new Golf Alltrack is aiming to be a genuine trendsetter in the estate car series.

The Golf Alltrack is well equipped with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and an off-road driving profile as standard. Powered by a 1.8 TSI engine that produces 125 kW, and combined with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed DSG, it looks to make the wannabe 4X4 a worthy contender in the crossover markets.
