The 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune is a vehicle that offers a more rugged appearance than the traditional Beetle.

This vehicle is equipped with a 1.8-liter petrol engine that is capable of pumping out 170 horsepower and offering 249 Nm of torque via a six speed automatic transmission.The car is designed with a wider track and a taller suspension of 1.16 cm. It also has some upgrades on its body including a brand new bumper with an enlarged air intake, integrated skid plate and a back end equipped with a rear spoiler.

The Beetle Dune is an interesting automotive offering because it takes a vehicle that has long been labelled as cute and non-threatening in its appearance, and given it a rugged appearance to appeal to a wider segment of buyers.
