The VW Beetle Rides On Out

After three generations, including a dedicated revival starting in the late ‘90s, the Volkswagen Beetle is gearing up for its final ride. Once the current Beetle generation expires in the next couple years, Volkswagen has no plans to revamp or continue the iconic model. But while we’ll soon be able to catch a glimpse of an electric retro-bus in VW showrooms, we’re taking one last look at the VW Dune Beetle before it hits the road for the last time.


One-of-a-Kind Design

While the little Beetle is known for its signature design and shape, the Dune brought a tougher look to the game. Exclusive to the Dune, the model features rounded, bulk bumpers, a whale tail spoiler, sleek black lower body, and revamped air intakes—just to name a few. If you’ve visited our Volkswagen dealership in Elgin to check out the Dune, you’ve seen the boosted ride height, modern LED tail-lamps and lights, and the 18-inch alloy wheels. VW’s Dune’s impact is such because of its contradiction. It may look small, but the model boasts the same idea of long-term adventure that SUVs preach with features ideal for active, explorative drivers.


Contemporary Tech


Even with a tried-and-true design, the Dune is packed with state-of-the-art tech. Take advantage of the 6.3-inch touchscreen, CD player, USB connection, and Bluetooth. Plus, drivers can individualize their ride with automatic climate control, a large skylight, rearview camera, around-view monitor for parking assistance, and the Fender audio system. In short, this ride’s got you covered.


Small But Mighty


The Dune is home to a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pushes 174 horsepower and 184 pounds-foot of torque—and the front-driven wheels can handle it. The six-speed auto transmission makes for a smooth, powerful ride that helps reach the 26 city and 34 highway MPG its known for.


The  VW Beetle is iconic for many reasons, but the Dune stands out as one of the brand’s most popular models for its diversity and reliability. Becoming a Beetle fan? Now’s the time to head to Elgin Volkswagen Dealer to get your hands on the Dune before its parked for good. Stop in today to see our selection of new and pre-owned vehicles near Elgin, IL.

Top Five Instagram photos of the classic VW Beetle

When the Volkswagen Beetle was first released, we don’t believe VW had any real idea how well its first model would be received.

Turns out, the style would be just as appealing, and there are plenty of gear heads who were excited to trick out the model with interesting mods. After all, the VW Beetle Dune is based off the Baja Bug. Here are our top picks from those on Instagram who are keeping the VDub Love alive. Read the rest of this entry >>
