Posted by Just10 on April 25, 2011

After months of secrecy, Volkswagen unveils the latest update of their famous Beetle. Inspired by the lines of the original, the 2012 edition of the automobile goes on to boast longer and wider design aesthetics, in addition to four seats with a reclining back to accommodate additional storage. As of now, European buyers will have the choice of four engines ranging from an efficient 1.2-liter gasoline engine, a 2.0-liter turbocharged model and a 1.6-liter turbo diesel version. Official options for the U.S. have yet to be confirmed.

While the 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine delivers around 105 horsepower and 65.7 mpg (EU scale) as a result of an intelligent battery regeneration system, the captivative 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine goes on to utilize around 200 horsepower.

The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle makes its public debut this week at the Shanghai Motor Show and the New York Auto Show.
