- Icon of the music scene and Volkswagen get together to develop a new premium sound system
- New up! and Polo to be launched soon as strong sounding special editions with 300 watts and seven loudspeakers
Few brands share the same attitude to life as “Beats”, and now two new special editions from Volkswagen being unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show also bear this iconic name. Both the up! beats and the Polo beats will feature a new, state-of-the-art sound system as standard. The system’s 300 Watt, 8-channel amplifiers fitted with a digital signal processor (DSP). To deliver this crystal-clear sound, the system has seven high-end loudspeakers distributed around the interior: two tweeters in the A-pillars, two woofers in the front doors, two broadband loudspeakers in the back as well as a subwoofer integrated in the spare wheel well, which delivers powerful, punching bass tones.
Over and above this, the two models boast impressive equipment. The up! beats can, for instance, be recognised by various features such as new 15-inch “Radial” alloy wheels, special beats design decals and contrasting colour door mirror caps, while the interior is given an individual look thanks to a specially designed dashpad, a multifunction steering wheel, a special door sill plate and colour-coordinated seat belts.
The Polo beats, meanwhile, features new 16-inch “Syenit” alloy wheels, coloured door mirrors and a gloss black radiator grille. The interior is characterised by the special “beats” design seats and door trim panels, coloured seat belts and a leather steering wheel.
The audio specialist Beats Electronics – founded in 2008 by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine – redefined how we listen to music, primarily with its studio headphones. Now the Californian company has significantly expanded its range of products to include earbuds, wireless headphones, wireless active buds, and wireless speakers.
