VW Beetle – The Super Bug
Volkswagen revealed the latest version of its ‘world car’, the Beetle. The latest car builds on the semi-retro ‘New Beetle’, which was introduced in 1998 and accounted for more than a million sales before it was finally discontinued last year. It is considerably wider and longer than the VW Golf. The new Beetle gets sharper, squarer bumpers, and a more rakish roofline. New features for the Beetle include LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon headlights, an integrated rear spoiler, and larger wheels (up to 19in will be available).

The dashboard-mounted flower vase – one of the 1998 model’s most distinguishing features – has been dropped, giving the Beetle’s fascia a more conventional look. A convertible version is already under development. However, this new bug is unlikely to be introduced in India till mid-2012.
