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.
