Volkswagen India will launch the new Beetle in Mumbai on the 4th of December. The car which is being imported from VW’s Mexico facility is a CBU and will cost Rs. 20 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The 2010 Beetle is equipped with rain sensing wipers, cruise control, 15 inch alloys (4), ABS, ESP, dual SRS airbags, remote central locking, heat insulating windshield, CD changer with 6 speakers audio system, front center armrests and acoustic rear parking sensors.
