A new audio system is also available, which features an improved bluetooth signal range, stylish looking speakers and a new 300 watt subwoofer. Durability has improved too thanks to new injection moulded consoles which are easy to assemble and which provide extra support. Using an enhanced vacuum moulding method, the floor pan has become stronger too and movement is easier with moulded handholds now present. Visually, style has been improved through the introduction of new headrests which feature advanced ergonomics and a more comfortable design. A new shoulder massage has also been included to relieve the daily stress from a user’s shoulder and neck. Enter the future with new Wellis jet designs and new lighting fountain jets which provide triple the fun within the spa and most noticeable of all, stylish new cabinet corners feature a new design, with more precise and easier fitting, due to the new technology which has been used for the new CityLine models.
