If you've been sitting at home or work wondering how much your dream 2012 Volkswagen Beetle will cost, today is the day you can stop guessing. Volkswagen has added its new Beetle configurator to its retal website, and the new-age Bug can be had for as little as just under $20,000, all the way up to $30,000 with a full suite of options.

The base Beetle, which comes with a 170-horsepower five-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission, will set you back $20,565. That's over $2,000 more than the 2010 New Beetle, but we're thinking the substantial upgrades makes the extra coin worthwhile. The base Beetle comes equipped with 17-inch wheels, Bluetooth hands-free calling, a media interface with iPod cable and Electronic Stability Control. The six-speed automatic transmission is a $1,100 option.

Other trim levels include the $23,065 Sunroof model, which includes a panoramic sunroof (go figure), leather-wrapped steering wheel with redundant controls and push-button start. Step up to the Sunroof, Sound and Navigation model, and the price of entry jumps to $24,865. This package also adds 18-inch wheels and a multi-function trip computer.

If forced induction is your thing, the 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged Beetle Turbo with six-speed manual can be yours for $24,165. The Beetle Turbo also a number of sunroof/sound trim packages, as well, which start at $27,165 and $28,765, respectively. Option out the top Beetle Turbo with 19-inch wheels and an automatic transmission, and you're looking at an MSRP of $30,865.

All quoted prices include $770 for destination. Head over to the VW website to price out a 2012 Beetle for yourself.
