2006 Volkswagen VW New Beetle
Press Release) Herbie’s on the road again. His new object
of affection, a New Beetle, has been made-over in Hollywood style
for him: Volkswagen has given it a face lift. Not too much, but,
true to Hollywood, a subtle touch-up with new lights and light
surrounds, an improved performance TDI engine and a slightly more
streamlined shape. The new Beetle is available to order immediately
and will go on sale at the end of August.
At first glance, you notice the sharp lines of the wings and bumper elements, which make the new version look more dynamic. The designers have also changed the lights slightly. The front turn signals are smaller and the clear glass headlights have a more oval shape. The tail lights signal the changes to the appearance with a white circle inside a red circle. The VW emblems on the bonnet and tailgate have also been modified and a new colour and wheel range with 16 and 17 inch alloy wheels offer both “Herbie's new flame” and New Beetle buyers new, fashionable design options.
More chrome and new equipment packages
The interior has shiny
chrome on the air vents and around the instrument cluster and there
is a new collection of fabrics for the seat covers. The optional
real leather CD pockets and programmable garage door opener under
the sun visor give the vehicle a touch of class. As every woman
knows, the key is to accessorise, accessorise, accessorise; this
also applies to cars.
