Volkswagen has introduced Polo Beats Special Edition at an introductory price of £13,910 (Around Rs. 13.40 Lakhs) in the UK. The German automaker has joined hands with Beats Electronics - the world-renowned audio specialist - to create this special edition. It comes with powerful 300-watt sound system wrapped in fresh styling cues. Deliveries of the Volkswagen Polo Beats, which is open to order now, are expected to start this month.
The Polo Beats features a state-of-the-art sound system comprising a 300-watt, eight-channel amplifier that is fitted with a digital signal processor (DSP). The DSP in the Polo Beats delivers high-performance audio processing that gives clarity and definition to each of the seven high-end loudspeakers. The speaker set-up comprises two tweeters located in the A-pillars, two woofers in the front doors, two broadband speakers located in the back with a subwoofer integrated into the spare wheel well to deliver powerful and punching bass tones.
As well as additional speakers, the interior of the Polo Beats boasts ‘Cortina Silver’ trim on the centre console and air vent surrounds along with leatherette door panels and chrome trim. The front and rear carpet mats have stylish red stitching, while the doors have unique ‘Beats’ sill protectors. The sporty seats have Alcantara side bolsters and a special ‘Beats’ cloth centre section, and there’s a streak of character through the seatbelts thanks to the addition of thin vertical red stripes. LED foot well lighting rounds off a cabin that benefits from the style and audio of Beats plus the technology and functionality synonymous with Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen Polo Beats is available in three- or five-door configuration and offers a choice of four engines: three petrol units and one diesel. All benefit from Volkswagen’s efficiency-boosting BlueMotion Technology and the 1.4L TDI diesel is available with a five-speed manual gearbox.
