Volkswagen Amarok Picks Up another Award!
The multi award winning pickup truck, Volkswagen Amarok has picked up its eighth trophy since its launch in 2011. It’s no surprise that the Volkswagen pickup has won the ‘Pick up of the Year’ award from 4×4 magazine. The Amarok offers its drivers maximum control on any surface, providing an excellent driving experience and comfort. This vehicle is simply the most exciting thing to hit the pickup market for decades.
The Amarok was in contest with 6 other pickup trucks. Each truck went through intensive testing. The contest was judged on off-road ability, performance on-road and value for money. The magazine compared towing capacity and engine capability of each vehicle, and of course in the end, the Volkswagen Amarok came out on top. The VW pickup was praised for its four-wheel drive 4MOTION technology. It was also acknowledged for its impressive 2.0 litre 178 bhp BiTDI turbo diesel engine. It’s eight speed automatic gearbox was also highlighted, which contributes to the overall superior drive, road response and driveability that the Volkswagen Amarok offers.
Editor of the 4×4 magazine, Nigel Fryatt said that “it was obvious” that the Volkswagen Amarok was a “clear winner”. He went on the state that the Amarok “has the best engine of the group, both in terms of on-road response, and off road-ability”.
