Volkswagen presents four new versions of the Beetle in New York

02.04.2015: The new Golf Alltrack also makes its USA premiere at the New York International Auto Show

    The new Golf Alltrack also makes its USA premiere at the New York International Auto Show




At the New York International Auto Show, which begins today, Volkswagen is revealing four new versions of the legendary "Beetle" car. In addition to the two coupés and two cabriolets, the new Golf Alltrack is also celebrating its market premiere in the USA.


Volkswagen is further extending the Beetle line-up and is offering a glimpse of possible versions in the four concept cars. The color "Blue" sets the stage in the concept car Beetle Cabriolet Denim. The body color "Stonewashed Blue Metallic" and the soft top in dark blue with a special fabric texture both make a visual reference to jeans (American: "denim").


The concept car Beetle Wave in "Habanero Orange Metallic" reflects the American spirit on the East and West coast beaches of the USA. This spirit is also expressed in the convertible's interior. Fabric patterns from the 1950s and 60s influence the design of the center seat panels, and there is a genuine wood dashpad that is designed in traditional surfboard style.


Those looking for something very special will find that the Beetle Pink Edition is the ideal choice. It is a car for style-conscious people around the globe. Pink accessories can be found among the most expensive labels in Manhattan and other great cities of the world.




Only the car was lacking. Now Volkswagen is also satisfying this need with a coupé in "Pink Metallic". This color contrasts with exterior and interior elements in black, chrome and aluminum look.


The Beetle R-Line Concept1, on the other hand, clearly stands for automotive sportiness. It is powered by a 2.0 TSI engine (European version) that produces 162 kW / 220 PS of power and harmonizes well with the car's design.


The Beetle, painted in "Oryx White Pearl Effect" impresses with its independent bumpers and wrap-around body paneling in high-gloss black, a diffuser also in black and a large rear spoiler. The car's sporty overall impression continues into the interior with sport bucket seats and elements in leather-carbon look.      


The new Golf Alltrack is a genuine trendsetter in the series of station wagon models offered in the USA. Besides offering the added versatility of the Golf SportWagen, it also offers more ground clearance, wheel arch moldings, flared side sills, underbody protection, newly designed bumpers and numerous other independent exterior and interior features.


The Golf Alltrack is well equipped with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and an Offroad driving profile as standard. Its engine is a 1.8 TSI that produces 125 kW / 170 PS; it may be combined with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed DSG. In Europe, the Golf Alltrack2 will also be offered with three TDI engines spanning a power range from 81 kW /110 PS to 135 kW / 184 PS.
