It used to be that if you wanted a Golf-based hot hatch, you only had to know three letters: GTI. But these days, Volkswagen seems intent on offering a much broader array.

Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept is a Modern Day Baja Bug


By , iMotor Times

In addition to bringing the 2015 Golf R to the Detroit Auto Show next week, Volkswagen is also going to bring the new Beetle Dune concept on the stage. The Beetle Dune concept draws its roots from the Baja Bug of the 1960s with its raised ride height and flared wheel arches.

The Beetle Dune concept looks like a crossover and a Beetle had a baby with its crossover-like appearance. Flared wheel arches, beefier bumpers and extra black moldings give the Beetle Dune concept what it needs for an offroad adventure. Inside the concept gets bright yellow accents and a grab handle has replaced the passenger side airbag. The Beetle Dune concept is powered by the same 2.0L turbocharged engine that currently powers the Beetle and the new GTI.


Volkswagen says that the Beetle Dune concept is merely a design study, but interestingly enough this is the second time that we’ve seen a Beetle Dune concept. Back in 2000 Volkswagen released a similar concept version of the Volkswagen Beetle, but it was never released. Could it be produced this time? According to some reports, it is possible.
