The Beetle Sport is the most powerful Beetle in the model line-up where you will find athletic aesthetics both inside and out. This mid-sized coupe with added muscle is not just a style icon – it also boasts the highest performance in the Beetle range able to achieve 0 – 62mph in just 6.7 seconds.
The Beetle Sport’s distinctive looks, upmarket interior and impressive handling set it apart from the rest - better yet, it is able to achieve 61.4mpg. This 3-door, 4-seater Volkswagen boasts a muscular edge, with its 2.0-litre TSI BlueMotion Technology engine boasting 217bhp, when paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
More aggressively designed and more premium than ever before, this smart, capable coupe is styled with 18-inch ‘Twister’ alloy wheels; some versions featuring red calipers. The Beetle Sport is also available with optional Keyless Entry and the choice of a stunning panoramic sunroof to add another dimension to the spacious and sporty cabin.
The Beetle Sport benefits from: Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) to keep you in control of your Volkswagen; Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which applies braking power to the necessary wheel(s) in dangerous situations, Traction Control (ASR) for smooth starting and acceleration and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) which directs power to the wheels that need it to provide a better grip.
Volkswagen’s advanced Automatic Post-Collision Braking System initiates braking immediately after an impact to avoid or reduce the risk of subsequent collisions.
Driver and front passenger airbag system, seatbelts, head restraints and ISOFIX preparation in the rear all help to keep the Beetle Sport’s passengers as safe as possible in the event of an accident.
The Beetle Sport comes equipped with an alarm with interior protection, electric engine immobiliser and remote central locking with two remote folding keys, making for a very secure Beetle Sport.
The striking design of the Beetle Sport goes hand-in-hand with its name and ability – sporty, sleek and sophisticated. Available primarily with Black bodywork, this model also comes with a choice of other metallic, non-metallic and pearl effect options.
Body-coloured door handles and bumpers, complemented by ‘Gloss Black’ door mirrors, plus chrome and black trim give the exterior a classy feel. This continues inside with the Beetle Sport’s ‘Gloss Black’ dashboard and door panels.
The Beetle Sport features enhanced styling in the cabin with sports seats, aluminium-look pedals, leather-trimmed gear knob and handbrake grip, multifunction leather-trimmed steering wheel, chrome-trimmed instrument and air vent surrounds as well as heat-insulating tinted glass.
