The new Beetle, previewed at the Johannesburg Motor Show, will include a 77kW 1.2 TSI and a 118kW 1.4 TSI, the latter with the option of a seven-speed DSG.

VW has had great success with its Star Wars Passat advert reaching over 50 million hits on YouTube. Expect the new Beetle to arrive in South Africa in September 2012.
