Volkswagen will show off their new Beetle Dune concept at the 2014 Detroit motor show. If that sounds familiar, that's because they previously exhibited a similar study based on the previous Beetle back in 2000.

The new Beetle Dune sports a tougher, crossover like appearance with flared wheel arches fitted with black moldings, modified bumpers and side sills featuring protective plates and chunky wheels over a new set of rims.

Power is sourced from VW's familiar 210PS (207hp) 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine paired to a six-speed DSG dual clutch transmission.
