VW Bets Buyers Will Like This Fender-Bender

Automaker to offer Fender Premium Audio System.

A different type of Fender-bender.

This is one fender-bender motorists will likely appreciate, or so Volkswagen is betting as it gets ready to introduce a new, high-line audio system that will debut on the 2012 Jetta GLI.

The 9-speaker package will be dubbed the Fender Premium Audio System and expand upon a special promotion VW ran a few years ago, when it offered a new guitar to anyone who bought one of its 2007 models.

It’s become almost de rigeur for automakers to offer a badged high-line audio system, whether Bose, NAIM or Bang & Olufsen.  But VW appears to believe it can strike a chord as it amps up a more bad boy image with new performance models like the Golf R32. (For more on the new hot hatch Click Here.)
