The VW Beetle Dune harkens back to the classic Baja Bugs of yesteryear, with its rugged looks and raised ride height. Recently, Volkswagen started airing an interesting TV commercial for the Beetle Dune, featuring an armadillo peeking out the window of the car. Watch the video below and see if you know the name of the song in the spot.
VW Beetle Dune Armadillo TV Commercial — “Mustang Girl”
The song in the Beetle Dune Armadillo commercial is “Mustang Girl,” by alternative rock musician Mark Alberts. The retro-inspired surfer sound of the song is a nice complement to the retro-inspired, yet modern Beetle Dune.

What features does the 2017 Beetle Dune have to offer?
The special edition Beetle Dune stands out from the other Beetle models with its aggressive and rugged appearance. This can be attributed to the fitment of new front and rear fascias and pronounced black wheelarch extensions that flow into the bumpers. Additionally, the Dune’s raised ride height of 0.4 inches and track that is 0.6 inches wider give it a more rugged stance. Highlighting the front end’s sporty look, the new front bumper features a large central air intake that widens towards its bottom edge, and a black honeycomb screen has an aluminum-look surround that morphs into the front skid plate.
The Beetle Dune comes standard with a 170-hp 1.8-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection four-cylinder engine, or for even more power — the available 210-hp 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While experiencing the Beetle Dune’s impressive performance, you can enjoy its stylish interior, with sport seats with contrasting orange stitching and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel. The Beetle Dune also comes with the state-of-the-art MIB II infotainment system.
