2012 Volkswagen Beetle


The new generation of the Volkswagen Beetle was launched a couple of weeks ago, featuring a more masculine look and pretty decent engines. The German automaker has revealed a couple of days ago the price list for the U.S. model, which costs from $18,995.

For this money you’ll get the 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine that produces 170 hp (172 PS / 127 kW) and 177 lb.-ft (240 Nm) of torque. This entry-level model rides on 17-inch alloy rims and features an 8-speaker audio system and a steering wheel wrapped in leather.

For $23,395 you could get the 2.0 TSI model that is powered by a 4-cylinder, turbocharged 2.0-liter unit, capable of outputting 200 hp (203 PS / 149 kW) and a peak torque of 207 lb.-ft (280 Nm). This model also comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and bigger brakes with red calipers. Inside the cabin, the Beetle sports ambient lightning, alloy pedals and iPod / Bluetooth support.

Next year, a new engine will be available, a 2.0-liter TDI that will deliver 140 hp (142 PS / 104 kW) and 236 lb.-ft (320 Nm) of torque. No word about the price yet…
