VW Adds Two New Engines to Beetle UK Range
But perhaps the best newcomer is the engine used by the Beetle Turbo in the States. The same 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged petrol that has been used since the days of the Golf GTI MkV is available, pushing out 200 horsepower through your choice of either a six-speed manual or six-speed dual clutch DSG.
This is enough to push the car from zero to 62 mph in just 7.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 139 mph. The TDI’s main trump card is its economy: 57.6 mpg combined.
The 2.0 TDI is available in either Design or Sport trim levels and will set you back from £20,085, while the 200 PS petrol also comes in combination with the Turbo Black and Turbo Silver special editions with prices starting from £22,295.
