Volkswagen has beefed up its small car offering, not with more power but a bigger sound system.
The Polo 6 Beats boasts 300 watt audio and is a successor to the Beat 5 model offered last year.
The hatch is priced from $22,490, with a 6-speed manual.
The Beats brand known for its range of DJ style headphones was founded in 2006 by Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine and acquired by Apple in 2014.
Based on the 85TSI Comfortline, the Beats 6 is powered by a class leading 1.0-litre three cylinder turbo petrol engine, with 85kW of power and 200Nm of torque.
The Beats 6 sees the debut of VW’s second generation Active Info display.
Now on a 10.25-inch screen, it can be configured with a choice of readouts and full screen map.
The Beats is available in a choice of three colours, only one of which you cost you extra — red.
It features a single decorative stripe on the bonnet, unique badging, dash inserts, two-tone upholstery and 16-inch alloys.
A 7-speed twin-clutch auto is a further $2500 while the optional $1400 Driver Assistance Pack adds Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor and Park Assist.
Standard features include:
CHECKOUT: More power for Golf GTI
CHECKOUT: Ducati on the chopping block
