Volkswagen's Polo gets a touch trendier in appealing 'Beats' mid-range form. The brand has teamed up with Californian audio specialists Beats Electronics to create a smarter-looking supermini with high performance sound.
The Polo Beats features a range of EU6-compliant engines. Petrol options are two three-cylinder 1.0-litre MPI units with 65 or 75PS, plus a 1.0-litre four-cylinder TSI powerplant with 95PS that can also be ordered with DSG auto transmission. Should you prefer to go diesel, there is a three-cylinder 1.6-litre TDI engine with 80PS. And on the road? Well, it still isn't as fun to drive as a Fiesta, a Peugeot 208 or a Renault Clio. For most Polo people, that won't matter one jot, many potential owners being quite happy to trade the differences that do exist for this Volkswagen model's superior long distance refinement and more impressive ride. The ride in town is as good as it i eering system is nice to twirl around on city streets too, lacking the remote PlayStation feel of s on the open road, easily shrugging off pock-marked urban surfaces. The st some rival electric set-ups and combining with the large glass area to make parking a doddle. Oh and the seats are some of the most supportive we've tried in a small car at this price point, an important point for supermini buyers. After all, it isn't only long distance journeys that can take up to 2-3 hours.
The sharper looks of the Polo Beats back up its class-leading sound system, with standard equipment including 16-inch 'Torsby' alloy wheels. Typically conservative Polo folk may not like the body stripes and brighter seat fabric that come with this trim level quite so much, but the 'velvet red' interior trim highlights look nice and you get sports seats, rear tinted glass, front fog lights, larger 16-inch 'Torsby' alloy wheels and unique 'beats' badging as part of the deal. As soon as you get in, just as in a Golf, you'll sense all the hallmarks of a really well made car, with the same glass-fronted 8.0-inch 'Composition Media' infotainment touchscreen you'd find on Volkswagen's larger family hatch dominating the dash. Gone is the somewhat old fashioned vertically-stacked dash of the previous Polo and in its place, a more horizontally-orientated design is based around the central fascia panel that positions all of the key controls on a higher plane that's more in your direct line of sight. There's more rear seat room than there was in the previous generation model, thanks to this sixth generation design's 92mm increase in wheelbase. And more cargo space too. There's a 355-litre boot, which increases to 1,125-litres when the rear seats are folded down.
