Volkswagen Beetle Dune

On the other side is the formidable Beetle Dune, which captures the iconic spirit of Baja Beetles. The Dune version is presented in a sporty image with a more rugged feel and a host of amenities and new technologies; never before offered on the third-generation Beetle.

The Beetle Dune has a more aggressive appearance than the rest of the Beetle range, thanks to the fitment of new front and rear fascias and pronounced black wheel arches that flow into the bumpers. The front bumper takes on a large central air intake that widens towards its bottom edge. Similarly, a black honeycomb screen with aluminum surround, which morphs into the front skid plate, give the Dune its one-of-a-kind demeanor. Furthermore, on either side of the intake, two black honeycomb vents contain the somewhat hidden foglights. A Lighting Package, made up of Bi-Xenons with DRLs and LED license plate lighting, will become an available option in due time for the Dune Beetle. Additionally, the Dune has a raised ride height of 0.4 inches and wider track at 0.6 inches for that rugged appeal.
