The 2014 North American International Auto Show showcases the most innovating concepts and redesigned, production-ready models. Volkswagen introduced a progeny of a Beetle displayed in 2000. It is the Volkswagen Beetle Dune, a new model now touted as being the production version of the “sportiest” Beetle.

It is hard to describe a pristine concept being modeled at an auto show as sturdy and tough, but there is a certain quality of the Beetle Dune that captures those adjectives. Maybe it’s the extra-wide wheel housings or the extra two inches it is higher off the ground than a regular Beetle, we don’t know.

In keeping with a rugged and sporty theme, the interior has breathable fabric seats lined with leather trim, a dash colored to complement the exterior, and an infotainment system that incorporates a 7.7-inch digital interface that displays metrics, such as the pitch and roll of the vehicle.

A 210-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine with six-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission, as well as front-wheel drive, make this concept a new addition to the long-standing lineage of off-road-themed vehicles offered by Volkswagen.
