Volkswagen Beetle – Concept car at North American International Auto Show

Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle (also sold as the Volkswagen Coccinelle, Volkswagen Maggiolino or Volkswagen Fusca in some countries) is a compact car manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen introduced in 2011 for the 2012 model year, as the successor to the New Beetle launched in 1997. It features a lower profile while retaining an overall shape recalling the original Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle.

One of Volkswagen’s goals with the model was to give it a more aggressive appearance while giving it some stylistic aspects reminiscent of the Beetle’s design. This was an attempt to distance the new model from the Volkswagen New Beetle, produced from 1997 to 2011, which never approached the success of the Beetle.

The second generation “new” Beetle shares the “A5” (PQ35) platform with the current Volkswagen Jetta and is built alongside the Jetta, Golf Variant and the old Jetta (“Clásico”) at Volkswagen’s plant in Puebla, Mexico. It is longer than the previous New Beetle (now 4,278 mm (168.4 in) and also has a lower profile, 12 mm (0.5 in) lower than its predecessor, and 88 mm (3.5 in) wider. The trunk is now 310 L (11 cu ft), up from 209 L (7.4 cu ft).

A convertible version followed the coupé for the 2013 model year, first shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2012 when it also went on sale. A performance version, called Beetle R, is projected to follow later.
