It means Volkswagen’s dealer network will be able to provide customers with DAB equipped cars from the Polo to the Phaeton, ready for the digital switch-over.
Digital radio not only offers listeners clear, crackle-free sound, but it also gives them a bigger choice of radio stations than is available through conventional FM or AM broadcasts alone. Listening options range from specialist music stations to comedy, current affairs and, of course, the all-important cricket coverage.
To make the most of the higher quality of digital audio, every model from the Polo S upwards now comes with at least six speakers (the majority of models have eight speakers), connected to a standard RCD 310 audio unit or better.
Order books are open for 2013 model-year Volkswagens.
