VW Amarok gets kitted out

Volkswagen has specced up the Amarok to give customers more exclusivity.                                                                                       PHOTO: Quickpic

VOLKSWAGEN Commercial Vehicles is introducing a special edition Amarok Ultimate which is the first bakkie in the local market with Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights as a standard feature.

The Amarok Ultimate is based on the top-of-the-range derivative, 2.0 BiTDI 132kW 4Motion Highline with 8-speed automatic transmission.

For exclusivity, the Amarok Ultimate boasts of numerous features. The Bi-xenon headlights give the Amarok not only improved lighting, but together with the two twin chrome bars on the radiator grille they give the Amarok Ultimate a greatly improved visual appearance as well.

Additional exterior standard features of the “ultimate” Amarok include silver wing mirror covers, darkened rear lights with LED number plate illumination, polished 19-inch Cantera alloy wheels, special “Ultimate” lettering, a silver-coloured design underbody guard and a styling bar as well as sill sidebars in chrome.

The Amarok Ultimate also comes as standard with Park Distance Control with Rear Assist reversing camera, electric folding and heated wing mirrors, heated front seats in either Vienna or Alcantara leather, RCD 510 Radio/CD system with mobile phone preparation, rain sensor with intermittent wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror and special velour floor mats.

The optional features offered with the Amarok Ultimate are the RNS 510 Radio/Navigation system with 6-speakers and electrical interface for external use.

The Amarok Ultimate retails for R600 200, which is less than the suggested retail prices for the double cab Land Rover 110 at R614 100; or that of the top spec Nissan Navara (R672 500); but dearer than the asking price for the Toyota Hilux Legend 45 (R563 900) and Ford Ranger Wildtrack (R596 900).
