With Volkswagen having teased its new 2012 Beetle during last night’s Super Bowl, the official reveal won’t come for quite a few more weeks. According to at least one report the car isn’t scheduled to debut until the New York Auto Show in April.

Inspired by the Ragster Concept, the new shape will be more reminiscent of the original Beetle’s while power will come from a variety of engines including VW’s 170-hp 2.5-liter 5-cylinder and the brand’s TDI diesel with lots of torque and exceptional fuel economy.

Later this week, VW is expected to unwrap the new Jetta GLI model at the Chicago Auto Show, boasting 200-hp from a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
