SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO and VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA will offer SIRIUS as standard equipment in all TOUAREG2, NEW BEETLE, NEW BEETLE CONVERTIBLE, GTI, and GLI models beginning with the 2008 model year. SIRIUS will also be available on JETTA, PASSAT and EOS models.
"Since the first launch on the NEW BEETLE in 2004, to now making it standard on the NEW BEETLE and other key models, VW has always shown to be a significant partner in the growth of SIRIUS," said SIRIUS CEO MEL KARMAZIN. "VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA's decision to move in the direction of standardizing SIRIUS on key models only shows their commitment for expansion and growth of our capabilities."
