UK: Vw Amarok price: £16,995 image

Pricing for the Volkswagen Amarok has now been revealed, with Volkswagen’s new pick-up available in three equipped trim levels, starting at £16,995 for the Startline model and £18,995 for the Trendline, while the range-topping Highline will cost from £21,575.

The new four-wheel drive double-cab is available with the choice of two diesel engines.  All models can be fitted with the 2.0-litre BiTDI 163 PS engine, while an entry-level 2.0-litre TDI 122 PS is also offered on Startline models.

Standard equipment on the Startline model includes 16-inch alloy wheels, 4MOTION Selectable four-wheel drive, electric front and rear windows, semi-automatic air conditioning and single CD / radio.

Advanced technology and safety systems fitted include six airbags, ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) incorporating Brake Assist System (BAS), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Hill Hold Assist, Hill Descent Control, Trailer Stability Control and off-road ABS, designed to shorten stopping distances significantly on loose surfaces.

The 4MOTION Selectable four-wheel drive system, available on all models, offers a choice between rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and low range four-wheel drive via a button mounted on the dashboard.  All models fitted with this adjustable system have a gross vehicle weight of 3,170 kg and more robust suspension which results in a payload of over 1,045 kg.

Trendline specification offers additional levels of refinement and equipment, with the addition of two-zone automatic air conditioning, RCD 310 radio / CD player, cruise control, multifunction computer and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, handbrake and gear knob.  Colour-coded mirrors, front bumper and distinctive wheelarch extensions along with front fog lights and 17-inch ‘Aldo’ alloy wheels give the Trendline a bold and purposeful stance.

The Amarok Highline is equipped with a range of further equipment to make the range-topping model stand out from the crowd.  Chrome detailing on the front grille elements, door mirrors and rear bumper create a striking look, complemented by polished stainless steel sidebars, privacy glass and stylish 18-inch ‘Durban’ alloy wheels.  Further enhancements include leather upholstery, heated front seats and rear parking sensors.

In addition to the 4MOTION Selectable system, the Highline model is also available with the option of 4MOTION Permanent.  This permanent four-wheel drive system reduces payload to below 1,045 kg but, thanks to comfort suspension which uses a two plus one leaf spring system, offers a more car-like driving experience with improved ride and refinement.

A comprehensive range of optional equipment is also offered across the Amarok range, allowing owners to personalise their pick-up to their own individual needs.  These include satellite navigation, additional protection for the load bay and underbody components, as well as exclusive 19-inch ‘Aragonit’ design alloy wheels.
