VW has launched new Beetle in India at sticker price of Rs 28.73 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). New Beetle comes with host of external and internal changes though it very carefully retains its design DNA. Upfront there is new, long bonnet that was not part of the previous iteration. Headlamp clusters are new too and now features LED DRLs. Prominent spoiler at the back has its own identity; accentuating the overall appeal of the car. Inside the occupants will get more cabin space as the new Beetle expands in its width and length parameters. The gadgetry is quite loaded and the instrumentation has been modernized as well. The biggest advantage however is expected on the space front where Beetle is sure to feel roomier. Thanks to the increase in width, squeezing two fully grown adults won’t be a difficult job.Under the hood, there is 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine mated with 7-speed DSG gearbox,channelizing the power to the front wheels. VW claims that the new engine delivers 35 percent more efficiency despite producing more power than before.
