The new VW Bug (also known as the Beetle) is a newer model of the original classic VW car. The Bug is known for its round, bug-shaped design, and even has a flower pot on the dashboard. Unlike the older Bugs, the new Bugs have been redesigned to be more fuel efficient and safer, including features such as airbags and an alarm system. The alarm system is activated by the keyless entry keypad, and is designed to blast a loud siren when a door or window sensor is tripped to deter would-be car thieves. The alarm also has a vehicle immobilisation system built in that locks the engine while the alarm is enabled.
