Wolfsburg, 22. February 2016 – The excursions of VW In the area of the most favorable new cars were not always accompanied by that success, for the brand name in other segments alone seems to be rich. After the popular VW Lupo came the half-hearted Fox, which was disregarded by many customers. Better it runs with the current VW UP, in which a platform usage of identical models of Skoda and SEAT have been distributed development costs. All three receive a little review now. Shortly before the fair in Geneva, the core mark as the first to show her interpretation of the elongated small car.
Optical revision remained above behavior. New are essentially a chrome strip on the rear, other alloy wheels and colors. In the interior, the new steering wheel falls up, which now matches the polo and golf. In the instrument cluster, the ads for tank capacity and speed were increased, also the display of the on-board computer grew. An automatic climate control, which no longer existed for the UP prior to the price list, also got a new form.
No burning upy
But the large innovation is in the infotainment department, which VW modernized for the first time after four years. So far, the portable navigation system "Maps and more" with some additional functions, which had a base for plugging up on the dashboard. This was also the possibility to play MP3 files without the previous burning of CDs in the UP. The involvement folded Via Bluetooth or a micro-SD. If you had only ordered a radio, you had to burn either CDs or use the AUX input with jack plugs, but you do not regulate anything.
Beatsaudio instead of Fender
The AUX connection is retained, but was allowed to have fewer users now. VW offers art two radio systems. Even the cheaper of the two versions has a double tuner and an SD connection. The monochrome display is 3.1 inches roughly here. For a surcharge, there is a digital radio receptionist (DAB +), six speakers and for the first time a USB port. The expensive radio offers a Bluetooth interface with handsfree and a coarse display in color. But there is a change in the supplier of the Sound System: Instead of Fender, more strong and boxes come from Beatsaudio.
