It is well-known that Volkswagen has been planning a new Beetle for a while now and rumours say that the car is to make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this year, but Detroit and Geneva are also likely to be on the debut list. The spy photos reveal the next-generation Beetle being tested on the road. The photos feature a next Beetle which has borrowed many styling elements from the Volkswagen`s Ragster concept, which first appeared in the year 2005. The car seems to have gained a more aggressive appearance since it houses longer, flatter greenhouse and softened curves.
A reason for this aggressive image would be that VW engineers are trying to get the car out of the “chick” stereotype.
2012 Beetle is expected to ride on the new Golf VI platform, but sources inform that the powertrains will come from both cars.
Also, sources from the inside state that the next Beetle will feature a potent engine, one that one can take on the track. We will heva to wait for a few months for the car`s official debut in order to obtain more specific information.
