Two new engines have been added to the VW Beetle line-up

There are now two more engines to choose from in the VW Beetle line-up, completing the UK range and also reducing the cost of the entry-level Beetle by £1,405.

The all-new Beetle can now be had with a 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, which joins the DSG version of the same engine. It becomes the entry-level model and is available from £15,195.

Also available is the 1.6-litre TDI with BlueMotion Technology, which is offered with either a five-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission. Prices for this car start from £17,030.

Both models are available in entry-level Beetle or mid-spec Design trim levels. The new Beetle derivates are available to order now, with first deliveries expected in January 2013.

Looks better and now is powered better. The newest Beetle seems to finally be the retro remake it was meant to be. @mikearmstrong11

£15k for a 1.2 ! And in a car of this size and weight!

Rip for for a rubbish and crap car.

There is nothing this has that can beat the Jap/Korean offerings in this same budget. A pathetic, useless piece of German-junk. No other way to describe this and every other VW.
