The new Volkswagen Polo Match Edition is packed with technology that adds value to one of it’s best-selling models.
The award-winning Polo is the leader in its class thanks to its build quality, smart styling and renowned practicality and these features have been enhanced in the new Polo Match Edition, which will be available to order now at Volkswagen Retailers.
The new model includes Car-Net App-Connect which fully integrates the customer’s smartphone, where compatible, to their Volkswagen Polo via a USB connection.
Depending on the phone, Car-Net App-Connect uses Apple CarPlay, Google Android Auto or MirrorLink to bring the device’s functionality to the car by displaying apps on the infotainment touchscreen.
Car-Net’s App-Connect functionality enables practical services and information to be accessed, and builds on the features of the Composition Media infotainment system. Selected phone apps such as Spotify and Skype can be operated from the car’s touchscreen, and for smartphones that support Google Android Auto, Google Voice control is available.
Volkswagen has also developed a variety of apps for those customers that use MirrorLink to connect their smartphone to the car. These include Call & Remind, in which the driver can make a to-do list while stationary in the car, and Cam Connect, where a GoPro® Hero4 camera can be placed in the car and a still image shown on the infotainment screen on demand – perfect for keeping an eye on back-seat occupants. And the system will even stream video from the camera when the car is moving slowly or is stopped.
The familiar petrol and diesel engine choices continue and the new models begin at £13,315 and rise to £16,465.
