The Polaris Slingshot has remained unchanged for a long time, but for two years the brand has not stopped introducing improvements. After the deep cleanup of the range in 2021, the company returned to the fray at the end of the year with an even more complete and interesting 2022 Polaris Slingshot. Now, the firm presents the 2022 Polaris Slingshot Signature LE.
This new special edition is called to become the top of the range. Noted for its tricolor exterior that combines red and black paint with matte bronze details. It is complemented by black badging, special graphics and 18 and 20 inch wheels (front and rear, respectively) with bronze finish. There is no lack of LED lighting and a ventilated sports hood.
Between equipment heated and ventilated seats are included to compensate for the lack of climate control; an audio system premium Rockford Fosgate with roll-up rim speakers and a Ride Command infotainment system with a 7-inch screen. In it we find GPS navigation and compatibility with Apple Car Play.
In the cabin there are gloss black accents, red contrast stitching and a XKGlow ambient lighting system. The latter adds LED ambient lighting that can be synced to music. It can also be adjusted manually using an app for the smartphone.
