The Volkswagen Beetle 60th Merdeka Edition, which was born to commemorate Malaysia’s 60th National Day, is based on the original 1.2 TSI Design model of the Volkswagen Beetle. The exterior is 60th. Merdeka Edition features exclusive painted car stickers and offers two exclusive car colors, Pure White and White Silver.
The interior gets some additions worthy of its limited edition status. These include a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, a 5.8″ Touchscreen ‘Composition Colour’ infotainment system with USB, Bluetooth and 8 Speakers as well as seat trim covers in ‘Pepita’ fabric.
The 60th Merdeka Edition Beetle is the same Beetle 1.2 TSI when it comes to its powertrain. It has the 1.2l turbocharged TSI engine with an output of 105PS/175Nm torque which powers its front wheels via a 7 speed DSG gearbox. It is pretty nippy around town and whilst the engine size may be small, it can cruise effortlessly at highway speeds.
The Volkswagen Beetle 60th Merdeka Edition, which offers only 16 quotas in Malaysia, and the 1.2 TSI Design grade Volkswagen Beetle sold locally, are 136,888, but Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia will provide five years, limited mileage guarantee, five-year free local road tax, and exclusive suitcase.
