The Volkswagen Beetle Fender Edition is based on the already higher 'Design' level specification. The new Beetle model can be ordered in two shades of black: 'Black Uni' or 'Deep Black Pearl Effect'. Black has been chosen so that the VW Beetle Fender Edition's numerous chrome details are shown off to best effect. These include 18-inch 'Disc' alloy wheels as standard, the wing mirrors, the strip below the side windows, the inserts in the side sills, the two Fender signs on the left and right front wings, the 'Beetle' wording on the boot and, of course, the VW badge. The exterior standard specification also includes bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lights.
The Volkswagen Beetle Fender Edition is being launched in autumn 2012. The new model can then be combined in Europe, Asia and Australia with any of four of the engines offered for the Beetle (all direct injection engines with turbo chargers). The petrol engines (TSI) deliver 77 kW / 105 PS and 118 kW / 160 PS respectively, while the turbo diesel engines (TDI) produce in turn 77 kW / 105 PS and 103 kW / 140 PS. In the USA and South America the Beetle Fender will be available with two petrol engines (125 kW / 170 PS and 147 kW / 200 PS) and one turbo diesel (103 kW / 140 PS). Entry-level price for the Beetle Fender in 'Black Uni' with 105 PS TSI engine: €21,725 (Germany).
