If you really love the VW Beetle, you deserve to own one that’s a little more customized. This summer, you’ll have your choice of two 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Special Editions: the Beetle Dune and the Beetle Denim. It’s going to be a difficult decision, but we’re taking a closer look at the differences between these two VW variations on a retro favorite to help you make up your mind.
How are the Denim and Dune trims alike?
It’s nice to know you can count on some things. The Denim and Dune Beetle Special Editions share some key features, including:
- A 170-horsepower, 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine
- Six-speed automatic transmission
- Bluetooth connectivity
- USB port
- Automatic post-collision braking system
Differences between the 2016 Beetle Denim and Dune Editions
While both the Dune and Denim Special Editions reference the Beetle’s long and unique history, we think they’ll each appeal to different kinds of drivers. The Denim features special denim-blue colors and upholstery fabrics and a convertible bodystyle, while the Dune features racing stripes, special “Dune” badging and a more rugged stance that is 0.4 inches higher and 0.6 inches wider than the standard Beetle.
