I'm looking to change my Fabia Elegance for an upcoming Arona Xcellence. Has anyone any experience of the Beats Audio System and is it worth the extra over the standard speakers? Thanks!

Be a hard one to say for sure, no idea what it will sound like exactly in the Arona but VW Up! Owners rate the system in their cars: http://www.upownersclub.co.uk/forum/new-high-up-sound-quality_topic8846_post97081.html?KW=beats+audio#97081

This beats Polo review says "The stereo is more impressive, producing a balanced (yet admittedly bass-driven) sound throughout the car, no matter how loud you like your music." https://www.whatcar.com/news/2017-vw-polo-beats-review/

I'm assuming the system will be similar to those used above.

Thanks Rob, I listened to the Beats system in a Beats Polo yesterday and it was bassy and the vocals were distorted and muffled. No treble even with the treble on full. I also listened to the standard 2017 Seat Leon system and it was much better and clearer. I think I'll stick with the regular system as the Beats system might not be as clear and clean as I would like. Besides, I doubt if I'll be able to hear the Arona Beats system (I can't imagine any dealer stocking an Xcellence First Edition) so I would be mad to buy without hearing how it sounds first.

Update - I've auditioned Beats Audio in two new Ibiza's and it's far better than Seat Sound in the Leon. Obviously it wasn't set up right in the 2016 Polo I first heard it in. It's deep and clear in the Ibiza's, just what I want. It's a shame I can't buy a DSG Arona here in the UK with this Beats Audio upgrade (I can add Beats to an Arona DSG in Ireland and all over Europe too - looks like the UK misses out again!).
