The new up! And Volkswagen Polo set to launch with Beats Audio

Volkswagen and beats audio are working together to produce a new premium sound system set to be in the new Volkswagen up! and special edition Polo.

Both of the new models feature a 300 W premium sound system from the audio specialists Beats AudioTM, promising a state-of-the-art sound experience.

To deliver 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. 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.

Not only is the new up! being upgraded on the sound, the car is also getting a makeover with special edition Beats Audio Features. These include; 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 the 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 ŠKODA Superb scoops two awards at the UK Car of The Year Award 2015

ŠKODA can’t stop winning awards at the moment, scooping another two awards at the UK Car of the Year awards ceremony. Both the Superb Hatch and Estate models were victorious.

The ŠKODA Superb Hatch came out on top in the Family Category, which is highly regarded as one of the most competitive sectors in the UK market. Awarded best in the category, the superb was praised for its exceptional comfort and high quality.

Motoring journalist Tim Pollard, one of a 27-strong panel of judges, said: “Can you think of a family car delivering more space, equipment and gloss per pound? I can’t…”

His views were echoed by other judges, with Chris Russon commenting: “The Superb Hatch has incredible quality and all-round performance at a price that makes others wince.” Fellow judge Al Suttie added further praise, saying: “ŠKODA offers more space, comfort and quality than anyone else at this price. The Superb is the best family hatch there is.”

Further proving the Superb’s strength in depth, the judges handed it the best estate car title. Judging panel member Paul Hudson felt the car was: “Even better than its peerless predecessor for a combination of space, quality and low running costs.”

These latest titles add to the new Superb’s impressive haul of industry and press awards. Since its UK market launch in September 2015, the Superb has been a regular on the podium, taking home five major industry titles including What Car? estate car of the year and The Sunday Times estate car of the year.
