VW Beetle Cabriolet
Volkswagen is readying its new Beetle Cabriolet for next month's Los Angeles Motor Show.

The new car will be the third Beetle cabrio ever made and promises to follow in the successful footsteps of its predecessors.

The four-seater cabrio has a fabric roof which can be lowered or raised in around 10 seconds, and boasts a 225-litre boot.

It'll be on display at the LA show on November 28, before going on sale in the UK in spring 2013.

British cabrio fans will be able to choose between a variety of engines. For petrol buyers there will be the choice of a 102bhp 1.2-litre, a 160bhp 1.4-litre and a 2.0-litre with 197bhp. Diesel options will include a 102bhp 1.6-litre and a 137bhp 2.0-litre.
