Volkswagen Amarok pick-up review - CarBuyer
The Volkswagen Amarok brings the firm's unbeatable image and peerless
quality to the double-cab pick-up market. It benefits from the same company
car tax breaks as any other contender in this class, but has just as much
appeal as a family car as it does as a commercial vehicle. This is mainly
down to the space and quality on offer inside. The Amarok is sold only as a
double-cab five-seater for now -- a single-cab model will follow later --
and it stands out with its high-grade materials and solid build quality. As
the styling suggests, this car is virtually unstoppable away from the
beaten track. The 2.0-litre twin-turbo
diesel engine comes with a choice of 120bhp or 161bhp outputs, while there
are Startline, Trendline and Highline specs. All feature four-wheel drive,
to ensure the car can take the roughest terrain in its stride. Massive
dimensions make parking a challenge, but once you've got used to how big it
feels from behind the wheel, the Amarok is a great deal of fun.

In recent times the VW badge has been notably absent from the pickup truck
business, but the Amarok's arrival changes all that. The Amarok is built in
Argentina and will go to work predominantly in South America, the Far East,
Australasia and the African markets.

Quer Feld ein. Bislang war das bei Volkswagen nur mit dem Tiguan und dem
Touareg möglich. Jetzt wagen sich die Wolfsburger in noch unentdecktes
Terrain vor. Mit dem Amarok kommt jetzt der erste VW Pickup auf den Markt.
Wendig und souverän arbeitet sich das rund 2 Tonnen schwere Fahrzeug
durchs Gelände. Bei der Entwicklung des Allrounders mit der
Freiluft-Ladefläche kam den Ingenieuren ihr SUV-Know-How von Touareg und
Tiguan zu Gute. Doch die sind eben SUV und keine Pick-Ups.
