Volkswagen has partnered with Beats Audio – Dr Dre’s headphone and speaker brand – to develop a high-performance audio system specifically for the Polo and the Up. Read on to find out exactly what stereo upgrades will be included in these new Beats special editions…
Volkswagen Polo Beats and Up Beats interior upgrades
These Beats special edition models come as standard with a 300W, eight-channel amplifier that lets drivers make the most of the existing infotainment systems with either Bluetooth audio streaming or USB and AUX inputs.
Seven new high performance speakers are mounted in the cabin of both cars to deliver crisp and clear sound. A tweeter either side of the windscreen, two woofers in the doors, a pair of rear mounted broadband speakers and a sub-woofer built into the spare wheel well combine to deliver refined treble and punchy bass tones.
Volkswagen Polo Beats and Up Beats exterior upgrades
Both the Polo Beats and Up Beats receive eye-catching exterior modifications including decals and contrasting door mirror caps in the signature Beats red and grey colours. New alloy wheels are also offered as standard – 15-inch for the Up and 16-inch for the Polo.
The Up features a Beats-inspired dashboard panel, a multifunction steering wheel and colour-coordinated seatbelts as standard. The Polo is fitted with a leather steering wheel, new ‘Beats’ design seats, coloured seatbelts and new door trim panels at no extra cost.
