2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune Dealership Arrival Date
We always expected the Beetle Dune concept we had seen quite some time back would eventually make its way into production, but we just didn’t know when. Now, finally, Volkswagen has revealed more details on the productions version of the Dune, as well as when we can expect a 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune dealership arrival date.
2016 VW Beetle Dune U.S. Release
Before we dig into some of the Beetle Dune’s features and specs compared to the concept model, we’ll answer the question everyone is dying to know the answer to: when can we get behind the wheel? VW has revealed that the Beetle Dune will go on sale in the first quarter of 2016, still as part of the 2016 model year.
But here’s the catch. Only the Beetle Dune coupe model will arrive in showrooms early next year. The Beetle Dune convertible model won’t begin going on sale until the third quarter of 2016. So, if you were hoping for a Beetle Dune convertible, you may have to wait a little longer. Although no exact showroom arrival date is available, be sure to stay in contact with us at Findlay Volkswagen.

2016 VW Beetle Dune Specs and Features
The Beetle Dune comes with some new styling features that retain that iconic Beetle DNA, but also give the model an off-road look. The design is said to be inspired by the classic Baja Bug.
Styling changes for the Dune model include new bumpers and side moldings, as well as 18-inch Canyon aluminum alloy wheels. Other exterior features include standard LED taillights and a large rear spoiler. Overall, the Beetle Dune has a raised ride height and a wider track.
Despite the more rugged, off-road feel, the 2016 Beetle Dune still comes with all the modern features you’d expect to find in today’s new Beetle. Interior features include a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, Park Distance Control and an available Technology Package that adds keyless access with push-button start, a sunroof, the Fender Premium Audio System and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Beetle Dune will be available in three paint colors: Sandstorm Yellow, Pure White and Deep Black Pearl. It will also come equipped with the 1.8-liter turbocharged engine offering 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque.
