The New Amarok V6 has arrived

Order books for the new Volkswagen Amarok are now open at Breeze Volkswagen Van Centres, in line with the vehicle’s national launch in January.

The new Amarok replaces the existing pick-up’s 2.0-litre diesel engine with a 3.0-litre model and currently offers two power options of 204hp and 224hp. All models are fitted with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

In the UK, specifications will follow on from the previous Amarok model, with Trendline at the entry-level, and Highline and Aventura models topping the range.

A further model, Startline, is due to join the range later in 2017 and will house a 163hp engine. This mid-year update will also provide manual gearbox options for existing models.

External changes to the design include a new front bumper, new alloy wheels and a third brake light. Internally the new dashboard design includes a touchscreen media system.

Mark Langford, Head of Group Operations at Breeze Volkswagen, says: “We’re really excited about the launch of the Amarok, it’s had some fantastic reviews in the motoring press and continues to be a premium offering in the pick-up market. We look forward to welcoming customers to our showrooms in Poole and Southampton to find out more.”

Prices start at £26,255. To arrange a test drive telephone 02380 663333 (Southampton) / 01202 713100 (Poole).
