A new VW Polo Beats already? That was quick. Yep – VW’s been much quicker out of the the, ahem, block this time around. The old Polo got Dr Dre’s sound system-approval in the twilight of its life, but the tie-up clearly went down well enough for VW to give the all-new, bigger, posher Polo the same bassy treatment from the get-go. What actually is a Polo Beats? It’s a mid-spec Polo (basically an SE) with a massively upgraded stereo and a bad stripe. That longer, wider body – complete with so many side creases you could grate cheese on the doors – rides on modest 16-inch alloys. You earn a pair of front foglights, tinted rear glass, a leather steering wheel and manual air-con. Like all Polos, there’s an eight-inch touchscreen - a really crisp, snappy one, in fact – and it controls the Beats. Literally.
