Used New VW Beetle for Sale

Since 1997 the New Look Volkswagen Beetle has been manufactured in Germany, Mexico and Vietnam and sold around the world. Although the basic look and feel of the Original Beetle Car was the inspiration for the Used New VW Beetle for Sale on this page, it has remained a completely separate model variant to the Used VW Beetle Models of yesteryear.

If you are interested in a New Look Used Volkswagen Beetle, please feel free to chat to one of our Group 1 Pre-owned Sales Team, and we’ll be happy to help you source the right New Style Pre-owned Volkswagen Beetle to purchase.

2 Generations of Pre-owned New Look VW Beetles

In 2011 the VW Beetle A5 replaced the previous generation of New Look Used Beetle, and for your convenience we’ve broken down the differences between the two model generations below:

VW Beetle A5 (Second Generation New Beetle)
2011 – 2019

Although the VW Beetle A5 is technically the second generation of the New Look Beetle, it is in fact a very different car to its predecessor. First announced in 2010 with a 2011 model launch date, the New VW Beetle A5 has much more aggressive styling and a lower profile, while still retaining a shape that was clearly inspired by the original Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle.

This version of the Beetle had many special editions, some of which we’ve listed below:

  • Black Turbo Beetle
  • GSR Limited Edition Beetle
  • R-Line Beetle

Unfortunately this New Generation VW Beetle is also going to be the last Beetle built by VW, as it was announced in September 2018 that the last VW Beetle will roll off of the production line in June 2019.

Did You Know? When first launched Volkswagen had Oprah Winfrey give away 1 vehicle to each of her audience members during the final episode of the Oprah’s Favorite Things special. Additionally VW teamed up with MTV and rolled out the launch of the A5 Beetle across the globe. This strategic partnering perfectly captured the soul of the New VW Beetle A5, and to this day the vibrant look of the New Beetle still gets people talking wherever it goes.

New VW Beetle (First Generation New Beetle)
1997 – 2011

In 1997 Volkswagen launched its New Beetle, which was inspired by the original Beetle but now included modern safety and convenience features. Additionally, unlike the the original Beetle, this new version of one of the world’s most iconic cars was a front wheel drive that also had its engine at the front.

Throughout its production run there were numerous Limited Edition Beetles released, with some of the most popular being:

  • The 2001, 2002 and 2003 VW Beetle RSi
  • The 2000 Wolfsburg Edition VW Beetle
  • The 2010 and 2011 VW Beetle Final Edition

Every one of the New Beetle Cars built had a number of design similarities to the original VW Beetle. This was purposely done to honor the original Beetle. These similarities included separate fenders, vestigial running boards, sloping headlamps, large round tail lights, as well as the highly identifiable rounded roofline.

Did You Know? The 2011 Beetle was awarded 5-stars for its EURO NCAP Safety Test! Additionally the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the New Beetle a Good overall score during its frontal crash test.
