Volkswagen’s off-road-retro Beetle Dune is now on sale.

Available in coupe and convertible form, this features a raised ride height, wider track and off-road styling – even though it’s only available with front-wheel drive.

The Dune has its own bumpers, bigger sills, wheelarch extensions and a rear spoiler. It also runs on 235/45R18 tyres to go with a 14mm wider body.

There’s one petrol and one diesel engine in the range – a 1.2 TSI unit worth 103bhp and a 2.0 TDI good for 148bhp. Both come with a six-speed manual and each has a DSG option

Prices start at £21,300 for the tin-top and £24,255 for the cabrio.
