the 2012 volkswagen 'beetle'

just in advance of the new york auto showvolkswagen has unveiled  the 2012 'beetle', with a redesign 
imagined as 'a new original' but hearkening back to the earliest 'beetles' rather than the 1998 model.

produced in both a 'design' and 'sport' trim line, the 2012 'beetle' attenuates the curves of the iconic model with a lower profile, 
longer front hood, a more angled windshield, and a panoramic roof that is 80% larger than that of previous releases. 
the car also features a rear spoiler on its TSI models, painted black along its top surface and the body colour on its underside.

at 168.4 inches long (427.7cm), it is a half foot (15cm) longer than the original, as well as 3.3 inches (8.4cm) wider 
and a half inch (1.3cm) shorter. trunk space is expanded to 10.9 cubic feet (0.3 cubic meters) of space, and features a split-fold rear seat.

the 2012 'beetle' offers three options for engines: a 2.5L gasoline 5-cylinder, 
a 2L TSI turbocharged gasoline engine, and 2L TDI clean diesel model.

vehicles featuring the last of these engines are estimated to attain a combined fuel economy 
of 33mpg (7.13L/100km), ranging up to 40mpg (5.88L/100km) highway. by contrast, 
the other two models attain approximately 30mpg (7.84L/100km) as their highway economy.

the TSI turbocharged engine provides 200hp and 207lb.ft of torque, utilizing an XDS cross differential system 
to electronically monitor wheel input and redistribute the torque among the wheels to control any vehicle slippage.

the gasoline five-cylinder engine is produced with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, 
while the other two engines come standard with a 6-speed manual, featuring an optional 6-speed dual-clutch transmission.

fitted standard with eight panasonic speakers, the 2012 'beetle' is also available with a 'premium VIII audio system' 
with integrated CD changer, SD card reader, and touch screen, or the 'fender premium audio system
with additional subwoofer and featuring adjustable interior ambiance lighting.

other optional additions include a navigation system via a 5-inch touchscreen, 
keyless entry and starting system, and bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights.

the interior of the car echoes the design of early 'beetles'. three round instrument gauges are arranged in front of the driver, 
while optional auxiliary features (oil temperature, clock with stopwatch, and boost pressure gauge) are located 
above the audio and (optional) navigation system to his right. an extra glove box, with an upward-folding lid, 
is integrated into the dashboard above the standard pull-out compartment.

with standard electronic stability control and both front and 'side curtain protection' rear airbags, the vehicle features 
volkswagen's 'intelligent crash response system' to automatically initiate safety responses in certain collisions, 
unlocking doors, turning on hazard lights, and cutting electricity to the fuel pump.
