VW has pumped up the volume with a special edition Polo kitted out with a massive sound system from Beats Electronics.

Volkswagen has joined forces with the audio specialist to launch a range of Polos that feature a high grade sound system while the car itself has fresh styling cues inside and out.

The Polo Beats edition comes with a 300-watt, eight-channel amplifier fitted with a digital signal processor.

The speaker set-up comprises two tweeters located in the front 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.

The looks of the Polo Beats edition include 16-inch alloy wheels, darkened rear light clusters and 65 per cent tinted rear windows. The radiator grille is finished in high gloss black and the car is enhanced with coloured door mirrors in either red, white or black with integrated indicators.

A Beats badge on the door pillars combines with Beats decals on the side skirts to complete the exterior styling additions.

The Polo Beats is available in three or five-door configuration and offers a choice of four engines: three petrol and one diesel.

All have Volkswagen's efficiency-boosting BlueMotion Technology and the 1.4-litre TDI diesel, which is available with a five-speed manual gearbox, has CO2emissions of 93 g/km and a claimed fuel economy rating on the combined cycle of 83.1 mpg.

The latest member of the Polo family also features a variety of safety equipment as standard, including ABS, ESC and Automatic Post-Collision Braking. The cars are also equipped with driver's and front passenger's airbags, and a side head airbag system.

The Polo Beats edition is priced from £13,910 for a 1.0-litre three-door version with the 10 model line up topping out at £17,060 for a five-door 1.2-litre turbo wiith a seven speed DSG transmission.
