2017 Beetle Dune

When you’re in the 2017 Beetle Dune, the road less travelled will quickly become a road you’ve travelled. Filled with a powerful 1.8 TSI® 170 HP engine, and a suite of off-road features like rough-road suspension, a wider track, and protective side mouldings, the 2016 Beetle Dune is a bug that drives like a dune buggy. So whether it’s on-road or off-road, you’re in for an edge-of-your-seat ride on one of the most iconic seats on the road.


Looks like the desert caught the Bug.

While unmistakably a Beetle, the Beetle Dune brings a new edge to a heritage-inspired icon. Taking design inspiration from the dune buggy and desert spirit, the Beetle Dune brings a tough attitude to the Beetle family along with thoughtful technologies.

A beefed-up exoskeleton.

With a wider track and a raised suspension, the Beetle Dune sports an aggressive style. And with a unique exterior Sandstorm Yellow color option, new LED taillights, a black honeycomb front grille, and a new wheel design, this Beetle shows that it’s not afraid to hide.

This isn’t a mirage.

Unique design cues don’t only apply to the outside of the Beetle Dune. Features like the special sport seats, an instrument panel with yellow accents, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel with a Dune badge show that this Beetle makes an interior feel like an oasis.

Your Dune. Your tune.

Make like a rock, and roll. Features like Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect1—which can display select music apps and more from your compatible smartphone onto your touchscreen—available Fender® Premium Audio System, a rearview camera, and Park Distance Control make the Beetle Dune a well-equipped iconic coupe.

2017 Beetle Dune Key Features:

Off-road features

Rough-road suspension, a wider track, and a lifted chassis are just some of the off-road features the Beetle Dune has to offer. Because when you don’t need the road, you can spend more time driving.

Bi-Xenon headlights and LED tail lights

With a distinctive shape to match the Beetle Dune’s distinctive chassis, these LED tail lights will make you stand out day and night.

18″ Canyon alloy wheels

These distinctive 18″ Canyon alloy wheels are large for a Beetle – so you know they’ll make a substantial impression.

Two-tone interior with accent stitching

Rugged on the outside. Refined on the inside. Every Beetle Dune has a two-toned interior that’ll make you do a double take – and not just because it’s two-toned.

Ambient lighting feature

With three distinctive lighting colours to choose from, all you have to do is step inside and set the mood.

Standard rearview camera††
