other pick-up trucks come with compromises, the double-cab Volkswagen Amarok
certainly doesn’t – it’s premium, flexible and
efficient, with cross-country mobility
The versatile five-seat, double-cab pick-up knows how to fulfil its duty as a family car within a double-cab form. It’s designed to handle a 1,000kg payload, while the fixed tow bar and trailer hitch preparation allow you to transport even more. The robust ladder frame chassis and selectable all-wheel drive offers a high level of stability, even on tough terrain.
Volkswagen’s trademark bumper and grille feature on this large pick-up – an impressive feat given the vehicle’s size and shape. Its premium exterior is easy on the eye, and a clever hose-clean design keeps it looking it’s best. Upgrade from basic to Trendline trim to get larger 17-inch alloys and stylish chrome detailing.
Likewise, sophisticated style is evident at every turn in the wide cabin. Durable, well-textured surfaces and a high driving and riding position provide a comfortable look and feel. The range-topping Highline trim is the most luxurious, with heated front seats and plush leather upholstery.
The overall layout is designed with practicality in mind. Take the three three-seat rear bench as an example, which folds down with minimum effort to further increase load space. There’s lots of space, too, with enough leg- and headroom for adults and children alike.
Rising from 0 to 60mph takes no more than 14 seconds in any Amarok model, so you can hit the road with total confidence. Choose between two energetic 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engines – a 138bhp TDI and 178bhp twin-turbo Bi-TDI. Volkswagen’s cutting-edge 4MOTION four-wheel drive system makes this a genuine all-rounder. You can even wade through up to 500mm of water.
Two gearboxes are available – a standard six-speed manual and a very smooth eight-speed automatic as an option on the more powerful unit.
The Amarok’s built-in safety features are hard to beat. Electronic Stability Programme comes as standard to avoid skidding. Hill Hold Assist prevents slides on tricky hill starts, while Hill Descent Control eases the vehicle on steep downward descents. Full airbags and load lashing rings are fitted as standard to provide additional peace of mind.
The up-to-date cabin comes complete with the latest touchscreen infotainment system, as well as Bluetooth connectivity as standard. Satellite navigation is an optional extra to make driving even more of a pleasure.
