Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept heading to Detroit

Volkswagen has released renderings of a new Beetle Dune Concept ahead of its world debut in Detroit next week.

As with the original version, which was unveiled at the 2000 Los Angeles Auto Show, the rugged Beetle Dune Concept features a raised ride height and protective under-panelling along with blistered plastic arches and side mouldings.

Inside, the cabin features more practical, harder-wearing surfaces, while power is believed to come from the same 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine seen powering the Beetle GSR, which develops 155 kW (208 hp) and 280 Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed DSG transmission.
