Rather unceremoniously, 2020 marks the death of an automotive icon. The very last Volkswagen Beetle rolled from the third generation production line in Puebla, Mexico in July and while you can log in to VW’s website and still see the model listed, existing stock is all that’s left. The two most recent Beetles never really achieved the notoriety of the original, but nonetheless they offered a welcome break from the standard three-box design and were decidedly anti-SUV. You don’t have to like them, but you can respect that they were different.
In the case of the third-generation Beetle, I think they were actually pretty good looking, too. Spacious, economical, and good-to-drive thanks to a shared Golf MQB platform, several special models graced dealerships in an attempt to sway buyers. Here’s one – the ‘Dune’. More a fashion statement than an actual Baja Bug, the Dune added .2″ of ground clearance and a half an inch of plastic moldings all around. Faux skid plates, special decals, a huge spoiler and polished door sills rounded out the exterior trim additions. Power came from the familiar 1.8T shared with the Passat, Golf and Jetta models (among others worldwide), and gave you 170 horsepower channeled only through a 6-speed automatic:

Like the Passat GT I wrote up a few weeks ago, the color here is Deep Black Pearl. Also like the Passat, this one comes from the same Chevrolet dealership. Why? No idea, but I’d guess they’re part of a dealer network. Regardless, it’s a nice-looking unit that has low mileage and is new enough that it does everything you expect of…well, a new car. Black wouldn’t be my first choice; this package could also be had in red and white, along with a neat Sandstorm color that matches the interior trim. That’s the one I’d choose if I were going this route. It’s not the nicest, or fastest, or best-looking, or most economical, or even most practical car out there. But it’s different, and I respect that.
