Volkswagen Beetle customers will have a new option package to select when they're not building their cars online. A new Premium Package is being made available for the 2014 Beetle hardtop and Convertible, provided they've been optioned with either the 1.8-liter turbo or the 2.0-liter TDI four-cylinder, that adds a wealth of new goodies to VW's iconic entry.

The Premium Package cars sit at the top of the hierarchy for their respective engines, and add bi-xenon headlights, gray mirror caps, an R-line front bumper, automatic climate control, navigation, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, the must-have Fender stereo, and a choice of three exterior hues with a new interior treatment. 1.8T customers will also get a sport suspension with 19-inch wheels, while TDI models will roll on 18-inch hoops.

Prices start at $27,355 for the hardtop Beetle Premium with the 1.8T, while losing the roof adds $3,400. The TDI Premium Coupe rings up at $29,355 while the cabriolet is $32,755.
