Volkswagen has launched a new version of the iconic Beetle in the UK featuring new styling details and upgraded specs. Don’t expect a whole new car though, as 2017 VW Beetle comes only with a revised bumper and some new fog lamps.

That’s about it really, except for the new R-Line trim, which is the highlight of 2017 VW Beetle range. The R-Line gets a sporty front apron with extra air intake openings along the upper edge of the bumper. Brighter instrument panel lighting and new dials and dash styling for the Design and R-Line models as well as refreshed upholstery design are among the other notable upgrades.

The R-Line version of the 2017 VW Beetle, which is what you want, replaces the previous Sport trim level and comes with a 2.0-litre TDI 150 PS diesel engine and a choice of either six-speed manual or six-speed DSG transmission. You also get 18-inch ‘Twister’ or ‘Ashmie Adamantium’ alloy wheels, body color rear diffuser, twin exhaust and a rear tailgate spoiler. Kaylami cloth seats, leather-wrapped sport steering, and 2Zone climate control are also standard.

But if you want a regular Beetle with some of R-Line equipments VW offers the Black Style Pack among the new options. It includes 17-inch ‘Rotor’ black alloy wheels and a black painted roof as well black trim pieces and stripes. The package costs £625 on top of the base price of £16,820.
