As one of the very few premium pick-ups on the market, the Volkswagen Amarok is a great alternative to the conventional working vehicle. With the latest version, these credentials are only enhanced.
The 2017 model has a brand new 3-litre V6 TDI diesel engine under the bonnet, which produces 220hp and can help the Amarok reach a top speed of 120mph. The 0-60 time is 7.9 seconds – impressive for any vehicle, never mind a commercial!
With a high seating position, good all-round visibility and high quality interior, you are guaranteed a comfortable ride both on and off-road. Even though the Amarok is a large vehicle, it is easy to control and easy to get in to.
Also added to the interior are Volkswagen’s ergoComfort seats, which are adjustable in 14 ways so that the seats can suit any body type. Fitted with nappa leather covers and with additional seat heating available, the Amarok caters to most people.
The interior is also very clean after the instrument panel and central console was redesigned to make it as simple and there is a clear design between the instruments and the devices in front of you. The multifunction steering wheel controls the Discover Media and Composition Media infotainment and navigation systems, and if the option is selected, you have gear selection paddles to control the 8-speed automatic gearbox.
As well as Park Pilot assist and Rear View reversing camera to help this rather large vehicle with parking, you have confidence wherever you are and can be fitted with VW’s all-wheel drive 4MOTION system to have extra control wherever you go.
The new Amarok is available in the UK from September and to stay up to date with the latest Amarok news, contact your nearest Inchcape Volkswagen dealership.
