2014 Detroit Motor Show LIVE: Volkswagen Dune Concept image

Volkswagen has officially unveiled the brand new Dune Concept during the 2014 North American International Auto Show.

After showing it in its first official images just late last week, the new VW Dune Concept is entering our news once again, this time with the vehicle making its public debut during the 2014 Detroit Motor Show. The model in question has been based on the Beetle R-Line and it’s coming with features like the brushed aluminum rock panels, with the increased ride height, the chrome plated skid plate, the two-piece wheel arch extensions and the 19-inch aluminum wheels, amongst others.

Some of the other items found on the VW Dune Concept include the ventilated hood, the honeycomb mesh grille inserts, the bi-xenon headlights, the gloss black trim, the dual exhaust system or the two rear spoilers. The cabin has received the two-tone sport seats, the aluminum accents, the 7.7-inch touch screen infotainment system and the Arizona painted trim. Power is being provided by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, which is good for 210 HP (156 kW). The engine is mated to a 6-speed DSG dual clutch transmission, sending power to the front-wheel drive.
