Volkswagen has pulled the covers (and the roof) from the new Beetle Convertible, ahead of its world premiere at next month's LA Auto Show.

As expected, the new topless Beetle draws on the look of the earlier E-Bugster Speedster concept, featuring a low-cut belt line and a short, upright windscreen.

There's little else to set the Beetle Convertible apart from its hardtop sibling though, and that theme continues under the bonnet.

Internationally, the Beetle Convertible will be offered with three engines, including a 126kW 2.5 litre five-cylinder, a 150kW 2.0 litre turbo four, and a 105kW 2.0 litre diesel.

A six-speed automatic transmission will be standard with the 2.5 litre engine, but the turbo petrol and diesel engines will get the choice of six-speed manual and DSG auto shifters.

The topless design has necessitated a few extra safety features, including automatic safety bars stowed behind the rear seats, popping up in the event of a rollover.

Watch for more details on the new cabrio to surface in LA next month.

 

Australia

The new Beetle range is expected to make its Australian debut in the new year, although exact timing and details are still to be revealed.

The new model has been a long time coming for Australia, with the hardtop version first hitting the international scene in April last year.
