New Volkswagen Beetle variants launched in Malaysia - Prices start from RM136,888

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia launched the new Volkswagen Beetle yesterday. This is the latest Beetle variant to be sold in Malaysia and it basically gets new colours and slightly better specification overall. They displayed the Blue Silk coloured Beetle at the launch over at Mid Valley Mega Mall and the car will be on display from 24 to 28 May 2017. 

What you will be getting are two variants - the Design and Sport. Both will come with the Volkswagen 1.2liter turbocharged TSI engine coupled to their 7 speed dual clutch DSG gearbox. 105hp and 175Nm make it ample to putter around town and even cruise comfortably on the highways. Claimed performance figures are a 180kmh top speed and a combined fuel consumption of 5.5liters/100km. 

On the higher end Sport variant, you get 2 zone airconditioning, a touch screen infotainment system with App-Connect standard on the Sport variant, leather trimmed seats with lumbar support, bi-xenon headlights  and LED running lights for a range that starts from RM136,888 for the Design package and RM147,888 for the Sport package.  

The Design variant has to make do with halogen headlights, manual airconditioning system, no paddle shifters. You still get an icon though. Maybe this is what's actually important.

We tested a Beetle 1.2TSI variant way back in 2015. Click here if you are interested in reading on what we think about it.
