The Volkswagen Beetle is 80.
To mark the milestone Volkswagen is celebrating with a nationwide dealer celebration where everyone is invited on the 17th of March, Saturday at all authorised Volkswagen dealers from 11am till 5pm.
Visitors at the party will be able to test drive the Beetle Sport 1.2TSI, and enjoy fun themed activities and refreshments for the whole family. Those who take part in the test drive will also stand a chance to win a lucky draw price of a LEGO Creator Expert Volkswagen Beetle at the dealership.
The Beetle Sport is powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI engine, paired with the 7-speed automatic transmission DSG, that produces 103bhp and 175Nm of maximum torque. Priced from RM147,888, the Beetle Sport is available in a variety of colours: Bottle Green, Pure White, Tornado Red, Blue Silk, Dark Bronze and Habanero Orange. The Beetle comes with paddle shifters, cruise control, 2-zone Climatronic air-conditioning system, 6.5” Composition media with touch screen display with App-Connect, leather trim “Vienna” seats with front seat lumbar support, bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lights.
Customers will enjoy a rebate of RM5,000 for a Beetle, as well as cash rebates of up to RM15,000 on other Volkswagen models. All Volkswagen models registered from the 1st of January 2018 also come with a 3-year (or 45,000km, whichever comes first) free maintenance package.
