Because the changes are merely aesthetics, you get the same direct injected 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 104 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 175 Nm of torque from 1,550 to 4,100 rpm. Transmission choice is the one and only seven-speed DSG, allowing the bug to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 180 km/h. Fuel consumption is rated at 5.9 litres per 100km.

There are five colours to choose from – Graciosa Brown, Deep Black, Saturn Yellow, Tornado Red and Pure White, as seen in the pictures here. Again, the Beetle Bug Edition is priced at RM146,888 and comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty programme.
