Polo beats edition launched

We all know that person who spends more on their stereo setup than they do on the rest of their house, and now that person has an ideal car - the Volkswagen Polo beats. As the name suggests, it comes equipped with a stereo designed for the car by the now-legendary Beats Entertainment, originally established by hip-hop superstar Dr. Dre.

So, the 300W system gets an eight-channel amplifier with a Digital Sound Processor for, apparently, "crystal clear sound." There are seven high-end loudspeakers in the cabin, including two tweeters in the windscreen pillars, two woofers in the front doors, two broad-band loudspeakers in the back and a sub-woofer in the boot.

According to Volkswagen, "no matter whether it is hip hop, heavy metal, rock, pop or electronic music - you can really feel the music in the new beats special editions."

Away from the stereo itself, the Polo beats gets 16-inch alloy wheels, coloured door mirrors, a gloss black radiator and some Beats badging. You can only get it with the 75hp 1.0-litre petrol engine and the price tag is €20,120. On top of that, there is a limited offer at the moment of free insurance for a year if you take out a finance package from Volkswagen Bank.

"The Polo remains a very important car for us here in Ireland and it has been a favourite in this country for over 40 years now," said Volkswagen Ireland Brand Director Gerrit Heimberg. "The new beats version offers a new angle on the Polo and will very much appeal to a younger buyer and in particular, any audiophiles thanks to its very special audio system."
