Uniquely retro and ultimately suitable for today’s commuting and mall-meandering needs, the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Base returns after a year’s hiatus bigger and, yes, bolder than ever. This 2-door, 4-passenger, front-wheel-drive (FWD) subcompact is variously described as a coupe or a hatchback, but in any event offers upsized dimensions to accommodate up to 29.9 cubic feet of cargo with the split-folding rear seatbacks down.
Standard features in this entry-level Bug now include 17-inch alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors outside with cloth sport front seats, full power accessories and telescoping tilt-wheel steering inside. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and manual air conditioning give an extra nod to class and comfort, while the single-CD player, 8 speakers and auxiliary MP3 input can be tuned to the ‘60s or to the overwrought electro-pound of today.
Options, meantime, are limited to some upgrades to interior and exterior trim, as well as splash guards, carpeted floor mats and a first-aid kit.
Powering this refined relic of responsibility is a variable-valve-timed (VVT), 170-hp, 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder (I5) engine that mates with the standard 5-speed manual transmission for 177 lb-ft of torque. Look for mileage numbers, meantime, in the vicinity of 22 mpg city/31 highway.
Noteworthy standard safety features, finally, include 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Further standard safety equipment includes daytime running lights and a post-collision safety system.

Carrying the ubiquitous 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder (I5) powerplant that’s been tweaked to conform to stringent California emissions standards, the hiatus-halting 2012 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5L PZEV (Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle) once again flaunts eco-friendly retro-cuteness.
This front-wheel-drive-only (FWD), 4-seat, 2-door coupe can tote 29.9 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seatbacks folded and comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors adorning its venerable, if somewhat larger and bolder, profile.
Inside, look for leatherette upholstery, heated, height-adjustable sport front seats, full power accessories, floor mats, and a telescoping and tilting leather-wrapped steering wheel. Cruise control also endows this midlevel Beetle trim, as do floor mats, Bluetooth hands-free calling and air conditioning. Entertainment, meantime, is offered via a single-CD player boasting 8 speakers and an auxiliary MP3/iPod interface.
Among the more popular options available to the 2012 Beetle 2.5L PZEV is the Sunroof Package, with a power sunroof, upgraded 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition, 6-CD changer and a touchscreen audio interface. The Sound and Navigation Package, meanwhile, offers a touchscreen-interfaced navigation suite and 400-watt, 9-speaker Fender premium audio equipment, while the Sunroof, Sound and Navigation Package flaunts all of the above in one nicely done bundle.
The standard 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder (I5) engine that gives this front-wheel-drive-only (FWD) trim its moniker flaunts some eco-friendly tweaks to give it the clean-leaning PZEV designation, along with the choice of a sporty 5-speed manual transmission or a less pulse-pounding 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Furthermore, with either transmission, standard variable valve timing (VVT) means mileage estimates of 22 mpg city/31 highway in stick-shift-equipped versions and 22/29 in those variations carrying the automatic transmission.
Noteworthy standard safety equipment, meantime, includes 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Additionally, this venerable-yet-brand-new Beetle coupe sports standard daytime running lights and a post-collision safety system.

To meet California’s stringent emissions standards, relive your flower-power-dominated youth and to cruise the commute in sun-soothed comfort, check out Volkswagen’s re-introduced, new-look 2012 Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sunroof.
This 4-seat, 2-door subcompact sports a 2.5-liter powerplant and the Sunroof Package as standard equipment, with the power sunroof accompanied by further appearance features like 17-inch alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors.
Inside, this feature-heavy retro-coupe boasts 29.9 cubic feet of cargo area with the rear seatbacks folded, not to mention leatherette upholstery, heated, height-adjustable sport front seats, full power accessories, floor mats and a telescoping and tilting, multifunction leather-wrapped steering wheel. Keyless ignition is part of the Sunroof Package and is complemented by standard cruise control, air conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free calling and floor mats in front and rear.
Look for a 6-CD changer and 8 speakers in the 2012 Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sunroof, along with satellite radio and an auxiliary MP3 and iPod interface.
Should more bling be needed, the Sound and Navigation Package, with touchscreen-integrated navigation and a 400-watt, 9-speaker Fender premium audio system that boasts a memory-card slot can be tacked on, as can such mundane stuff as splash guards, carpeted floor mats and various interior and exterior trim upgrades.
Tweaked to conform to more stringent emissions standards is a Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle (PZEV)-rated 2.5-liter 5-cylinder (I5) powerplant that combines with either a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed shiftable automatic to put out 170 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. With variable valve timing (VVT), mileage is estimated at 22 mpg city/31 highway with the stick-shift edition and 22/29 with the automatic transmission.
Notable standard safety equipment in the Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sunroof includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Further standard safety features include daytime running lights and a post-collision safety system.

Need a subcompact 4-passenger coupe with an eco-friendly turbocharged engine and an iconic profile? Check out the re-introduced and reworked 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo PZEV (Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle).
Tweaked to conform to state laws that encompass California emissions standards, a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant gives this venerable-yet-updated Bug its go. Mated with either the standard 6-speed standard manual transmission or the available 6-speed auto-manual (DSG) transmission, this blown four-banger puts out 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque, with mileage estimated at 21 mpg city/30 highway in stick-shift versions and 22/30 in automatic-toting editions.
As with its normally aspirated siblings, the Beetle Turbo PZEV sports 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, while 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and heated power-adjustable mirrors decorate its upsized profile.
Inside, this retro-Bug flaunts premium cloth upholstery and heated, height-adjustable sport front seats as well as a telescoping and tilting leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped shift knob, simulated carbon-fiber dashboard trim and full power accessories. Cruise control also comes standard aboard this high-end trim, as do air conditioning, floor mats and Bluetooth hands-free calling. Meantime, entertainment is offered by a single-CD player with 8 speakers and auxiliary iPod integration.
Available to the latest iteration of law-abiding turbocharged Beetledom is a Sunroof Package boasting a power sunroof, keyless ignition, a multifunction steering wheel, 6-CD changer, satellite radio and upgraded 19-inch wheels. A Sound and Navigation Package, meanwhile, throws in a navigation suite and a touchscreen-interfaced, 9-speaker Fender premium audio system that pounds out 400 watts. All of the above can, needless to say, also be bundled together into the Sunroof, Sound and Navigation Package, while leather upholstery, upgraded and customizable graphics and badges, carpeted floor mats, splash guards and a sport-tuned suspension are additionally available as standalone options.
Noteworthy standard safety features aboard the 2012 Beetle 2.0T Turbo PZEV include 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Further safety equipment delivered with VW’s latest bug include daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, cornering lights and a post-collision safety system.

Yep, the illustrious and iconic Volkswagen Beetle is back, and among its incarnations for 2012 is the Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sunroof, Sound and Nav. Packing a California-emissions-friendly 2.5-liter 5-cylinder (I5) powerplant, this 2-door, 4-seat coupe is upgraded from its lesser siblings with the Sunroof, Sound and Nav Package that flaunts a power sunroof, Fender 9-speaker premium audio with touchscreen display and a navigation system that’s also integrated with the dashboard-mounted color display.
This midlevel Bug also boasts the same 29.9 cubic feet of cargo area (with the rear seats folded) as its brethren, as well as upgraded 18-inch alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable outside mirrors. Inside, look for leatherette upholstery, heated and height-adjustable sport front seats, full power accessories, floor mats, keyless ignition, cruise control and a tilting and telescoping, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel.
Of course, air conditioning is standard, as is Bluetooth hands-free communications, while the touchscreen-interfaced, 400-watt Fender sound system is complemented by a 6-CD changer, 9 speakers, satellite radio, a memory-card slot and auxiliary MP3 and iPod integration. Finally, the aforementioned flash-memory-based navigation system also comes standard.
Further available bling aboard this venerable coupe includes carpeted floor mats, splash guards and various exterior and interior trim upgrades.
Giving the 2012 VW Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sunroof, Sound and Nav its go is an emissions-lowering PZEV (Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle) 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder (I5) powerplant that can be managed by either the standard 5-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. With either gearbox, this little coupe will put out 170 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, while variable valve timing (VVT) helps maintain mileage estimates of 22 mpg city/31 highway in the stick-shift-equipped version and 22/29 in the automatic.
Finally, standard safety features aboard include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags, and front head restraint whiplash protection. Daytime running lights also come standard, as does a post-collision safety system.

As may be apparent from its moniker, Volkswagen’s re-introduced-for-2012 Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sound and Nav sports a California-emissions-approved PZEV (Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle) 2.5-liter powerplant, as well as the Sound and Navigation package as standard equipment aboard its 4-passenger, 2-door subcompact frame. From such exotic ingredients comes its wordy moniker.
Meantime, all of the former bling is added to such standard appearance goodies as 18-inch upgraded alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors, with the interior capable of handling 29.9 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seatbacks folded. Also on the inside are such added doodads as leatherette upholstery, heated and height-adjustable sport front seats, full power accessories, floor mats, keyless ignition and a multifunction tilting and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Cruise control also comes standard, as do floor mats in front and rear, air conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free calling and a premium Fender audio system with single-CD changer, 9 speakers, satellite radio, a memory card slot and iPod/MP3 integration, while the included navigation package boasts an audio-integrated touchscreen-display interfaced with standard flash-memory-based navigation.
Further add-ons to this loaded-up Beetle include splash guards, carpeted floor mats and upgrades to interior and exterior trim pieces. A power sunroof can also be added and comes with upgraded 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition, a multifunction steering wheel and a 6-CD changer.
As its name implies, the front-wheel-drive (FWD) 2012 Beetle 2.5L PZEV with Sound and Nav packs a 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder (I5) powerplant that mates with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed shiftable automatic for 170 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Meantime, mileage figures for the variable-valve-timed (VVT) five-banger are estimated at 22 mpg city/31 highway when carrying the stick-shift transmission and 22/29 for the automatic-toting version.
Standard safety equipment, finally, includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Added to the above are standard daytime running lights and a post-collision safety system.

Turbocharged and looking almost wicked in black-on-black, the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Black Turbo represents VW’s latest iteration of its 4-passenger, 2-door, subcompact coupe.
This potent bug sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant that mates with either the standard 6-speed manual transmission or the available 6-speed auto-manual (DSG) transmission for 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Mileage estimates, meanwhile, are pegged at 21 mpg city/30 highway in the stick-shift version, and 22/30 in the automatic-equipped variant.
This once-geeky Bug gets a longer and wider, lower and bolder look for its re-introductory year, with the standard Deep Black Pearl Metallic exterior and Titanium Black premium cloth upholstery. Additionally, this up-powered and up-featured people-hauler sports a standard rear spoiler, 18-inch alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors outside, and heated, height-adjustable sport front seats, as well as a leather-wrapped telescoping and tilting steering wheel and shift knob inside.
Further standard comfort and convenience bling includes full power accessories, cruise control, air conditioning, simulated carbon fiber dashboard trim, Bluetooth hands-free calling and a single-CD player boasting 8 speakers and auxiliary iPod integration.
The Sunroof Package is one option available to the Beetle Black Turbo and comes with a power sunroof, keyless ignition, a multifunction steering wheel (mounting paddle shifters in automatic-transmission editions), a 6-CD changer and touchscreen-interfaced audio components.
The optional Sunroof, Sound and Navigation Package, meanwhile, offers all the goodies in the Sunroof Package as well as a navigation system integrated into the dashboard-mounted display, upgraded 19-inch wheels and 400 watts of Fender premium audio with 9 speakers and a memory-card slot.
Finally, leather upholstery is available to the 2012 Beetle Black Turbo, as are splash guards, carpeted floor mats (in titanium black, of course), a sport-tuned suspension and various unique badges and graphics.
Noteworthy standard safety equipment, meantime, includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Daytime running lights are also standard aboard this beefed-up bug, as are cornering lights, front fog/driving lights and a post-collision safety system.

After a year off, Volkswagen’s iconic Beetle returns longer, wider, lower and bolder than ever. In one of its classier iterations, this 4-seat, 2-door subcompact coupe is available as the 2012 Beetle White Turbo PZEV (Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle).
Boasting turbocharged power and 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seatbacks folded, this venerable VW also packs a rear spoiler, 18-inch alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors around its Black-Turbo-counterpointed white profile.
Inside, Titanium Black premium cloth upholstery adorns heated height-adjustable sport front seats with a tilting and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel bolstered by a leather-wrapped shift knob and simulated carbon fiber dashboard embellishments.
Cruise control is standard, as are air conditioning, floor mats front and rear, and Bluetooth hands-free communications, while entertainment is offered via a single-CD player with 8 speakers and an auxiliary MP3/iPod interface.
Optional equipment, meantime, includes the Sunroof, Sound and Nav Package, boasting a power sunroof, keyless ignition, a multifunction steering wheel, a 400-watt Fender premium sound system with 6-CD changer, 9 speakers, satellite radio and a memory-card slot and touchscreen display, and a flash-memory-based navigation system that adds its talents to the dashboard-mounted screen. All of the above, meantime, can be separated into just the Sunroof Package, just the Sound Package and just the Sound and Nav Package, with corresponding adjustments to offered features, including 19-inch upgraded wheels.
Additionally, the dazzling Beetle White Turbo PZEV can be delivered with splash guards, carpeted floor mats, leather upholstery, upgraded interior and exterior trim blandishments and/or a sport-tuned suspension.
Giving this latest Beetle incarnation its go is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant that meshes with either the standard 6-speed manual transmission or the available 6-speed auto-manual (DSG) gearbox for 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Meantime, mileage estimates for this blown four-banger are 21 mpg city/30 highway in stick-shift-toting editions and 22/30 in auto-manual-bearing variants.
Notable standard safety features, finally, include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Further safety equipment delivered aboard the 2012 Beetle White Turbo includes daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, cornering lights and a post-collision safety system.

Take the reworked and re-introduced 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, toss in a California-emissions-ready turbocharged inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant, a 9-speaker premium Fender sound system and a power sunroof, and behold the Beetle 2.0T Turbo PZEV with Sunroof and Sound.
Classified as a partial zero-emissions vehicle—thus the PZEV designation—this 2-door, 4-place subcompact Beetle boasts an eco-friendly 2.0-liter I4 turbo managed by either the standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed auto-manual (DSG) transmission. In each case, this blown four-banger puts out 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque, with mileage estimates running 21 mpg city/30 highway for stick-shift-toting versions and 22/30 for automatic-equipped variants.
Able to tote the 29.9 cubic feet of cargo (with the rear seats folded) common to its lesser siblings, this amped-up Beetle also boasts 19-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, a rear spoiler and heated power-adjustable mirrors draping a post-hiatus profile that’s also lower, longer and wider than previous iterations. Inside, look for premium cloth upholstery, heated height-adjustable sport front seats, full power accessories and floor mats, as well as a tilting and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel that’s complemented by a leather-wrapped shift knob and simulated carbon fiber accents.
Bluetooth hands-free calling is additionally standard aboard the Beetle Turbo PZEV with Sunroof and Sound, as is a premium 400-watt, 9-speaker Fender audio system that flaunts a 6-CD changer, touchscreen display, satellite radio, a memory-card slot and auxiliary iPod/MP3 integration.
Options-wise, a navigation system that is interfaced with the touchscreen display is the more exotic add-on available to this turbocharged Bug. Splash guards, meanwhile, as well as carpeted floor mats, a sport-tuned suspension, leather upholstery and various interior and exterior trim upgrades are also optional.
Finally, standard safety features on this latest Beetle incarnation include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Additional safety stuff includes daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, cornering lights and a post-collision safety system.

The VW Beetle is back, and for 2012 it can be had in a potent turbocharged edition that conforms to strict California emissions standards and totes all kinds of standard goodies. The Volkswagen Beetle Turbo PZEV with Sunroof, Sound and Nav offers this subcompact 4-seat coupe with an eco-tweaked inline 4-cylinder (I4) turbocharged engine, as well as a standard power sunroof, Fender premium audio components and a navigation system.
Longer, lower, wider and bolder, this latest VW bug also flaunts 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and heated power-adjustable mirrors outside, with premium cloth upholstery, heated, height-adjustable sport front seats and split-folding rear seatbacks inside. A leather-wrapped tilting and telescoping steering wheel, meantime, is complemented by a leather-wrapped shift knob and simulated carbon fiber dashboard trim, with full power accessories, keyless ignition, cruise control, air conditioning and floor mats in front and rear also delivered as standard equipment.
Bluetooth hands-free calling comes in this upsized Beetle trim, as does a 9-speaker Fender premium audio system flaunting 400 watts, a touchscreen interface, 6-CD changer and auxiliary iPod input. Finally, a navigation suite is also standard and interfaced with the dashboard-mounted audio touchscreen display.
Options, meantime, include a sport-tuned suspension, splash guards, customizable graphics and badges, leather upholstery and carpeted floor mats.
Engine-wise, the emissions-lowering turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 powerplant that’s standard in this PZEV (Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle) can be combined with either the standard 6-speed manual transmission or VW’s touted DSG 6-speed auto-manual gearbox to put out 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Mileage estimates, meanwhile, run 21 mpg city/30 highway for stick-shift-equipped variations and 22/30 for automatic-toting editions.
Finally, standard safety equipment in the 2012 Beetle Turbo PZEV with Sunroof, Sound and Nav includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. All this is further bolstered by daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, cornering lights and a post-collision safety system.

Volkswagen has brought back the iconic, updated Beetle, and now it’s a little longer, a touch wider and a tad lower, and it flaunts turbocharged power. The 2012 Beetle Turbo with Sound and Nav also boasts standard Fender premium audio and a touchscreen-interfaced navigation system.
Mirroring its lesser siblings with 29.9 cubic feet of cargo area with the rear seats folded, this 4-seat, 2-door subcompact coupe also sports appearance features like 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and heated power-adjustable mirrors. Inside, look for premium cloth upholstery, heated height-adjustable sport front seats, full power accessories, a leather-wrapped shift knob and simulated carbon fiber cabin accents. Convenience-wise, cruise control is bolstered by a leather-wrapped tilting and telescoping steering wheel, with floor mats and air conditioning additionally delivered.
Bluetooth hands-free calling stands tall in this turbo-toting Bug, as does a 400-watt, 9-speaker Fender audio system with a single-CD player, satellite radio, a memory-card slot and a touchscreen dashboard display. Finally, a flash-memory-based navigation system also comes with this loaded-up Beetle.
Options, meantime, include the Sunroof Package with its power sunroof, 6-CD changer, multifunction steering wheel, keyless ignition and supplemental badges and graphics, while splash guards, carpeted floor mats, a sport-tuned suspension and leather upholstery are all offered as standalone extras.
Powering the 2012 Beetle Turbo with Sound and Nav is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine that mates with either the standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed auto-manual (DSG) transmission for 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Look for mileage estimated at 21 mpg city/30 highway in stick-shift versions and 22/30 in automatic-toting variations.
Notable standard safety equipment aboard this little coupe includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Additional standard safety features include daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, cornering lights and a post-collision safety system.
