The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently announced that the new Beetle generation has received two new engines.
According to the car manufacturer, future owners of the Volkswagen Beetle will now get two more engines to choose from and the flagship 2.0 liter TSI unit will be available exclusively in the Sport trim. This new engine will generate a total output of 197 horsepower and it will be mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG transmission. The Volkswagen Beetle Sport equipped with the 2.0 TSI engine will be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in7.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 22,295 GBP for the manual version, while the DSG will cost 1,510 pounds more.
Besides the 2.0 TSI, Volkswagen says that the new Beetle generation will also get a diesel engine under its hood, in the shape of the 2.0 TDI, which becomes available for the Sport and the Design trim levels. The 2.0 liter TDI is turbocharged and the total output produced is 138 HP, allowing the model to burn an average of 4.9 liters of fuel every 100 km (57.6 mpg UK / 47.9 mpg US) and emit just 129 g/km of CO2. More details on the new engines will be announced soon.
