Volkswagen introduces new entry-level Beetle engines

Volkswagen UK has announced the addition of two more engine options to its Beetle line-up.

From today, customers can specify a 1.2-litre TSI version, which produces 77 kW (104 hp), mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. OTR pricing starts at £15,195, meaning it undercuts the currently-offered 1.2-litre TSI with seven-speed DSG transmission by £1,405.

Diesel fans are catered for with the 77 kW (104 hp) 1.6-litre TDI model. Featuring BlueMotion Technology, such as Stop/Start and battery regeneration, and a five-speed manual transmission, combined fuel consumption is 4.3 litres every 100 kilometres with a CO2 figure of 113 g/km emitted. Starting at £17,030, if you want a DSG gearbox, you’ll have to opt for the higher ‘Design’ trim level including 16-inch ‘Whirl’ alloy wheels, priced at 19,100.
