With its solid stance, off-road ability and uncompromising build quality, the Volkswagen Amarok is an SUV that's not afraid to get its hands dirty.
Few cars are as at home on a building site as they are outside a wine bar, but choose a used Volkswagen Amarok and you really do get the best of both worlds.
Pick-ups used to be just for humping difficult shaped loads, the VW Amarok does that with ease, but then can take your family away adventuring at the weekends, carrying your bikes tents and luggage with the same ease as it does its day job.
A used VW Amarok straddles two camps, those who are looking for an everyday workhorse and best of burden and those who want an SUV that can literally carry all the family and the kitchen sink! If you fall into either of these camps then you should seriously be considering a used VW Amarok.
Class-leading for its on-road performance, this is not at the expense of its off-road grunt and it can carry over a tonne and still take muddy and rough terrain in its stride.
When you’re choosing the perfect used VW Amarok, take your pick from a number of diesel engines, with Trendline, Highline and Special Edition trims also on offer. All this and if you need to tow a trailer or caravan you could check out any used Amarok with tow-bar already fitted or have one retro fitted to the used VW Amarok of your choice.
It may well be a pick-up, but it drives very much like a car and the interior owes more to VW cars than it does to vans. It seats 5 adults with ease, yet still has the ability to haul over a tonne of anything you can think off on its class-leading load bed.
A used VW Amarok truly is the pick of the pick-ups!

The Volkswagen Amarok is a pickup truck created by German Automaker Volkswagen in 2010. It is the first pickup designed by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and generated a substantial buzz in 2005 when it was first announced. It has since received a four-star rating from the Euro NCAP for its high-performance crash-testing effectiveness under the 2010/2011 standard test crashing procedure. Its later models haven’t dropped below these standards. The VW Amarok has been awarded the 2020 Pickup of the Year by What Car?, and it is considered to be a successful rival against the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux in Europe.
There are three model lines: base, Trendline and Highline. The base version comes with 16-inch steel wheels, height-adjustable front seats, adjustable rear bench seats, a lockable glove box, and manual window regulators, door locking and mirror adjustment.
The Trendline Trim is upgraded to 17-inch aluminium wheels, electrically operated door locking, windows and wing mirror adjustment, and a radio equipped with a CD player, climate control, a multi-functional display option, and cruise control. The front headlights are upgraded with fog lights. Instead of the standard black paint, the bumper, door handles and wing mirrors are painted the same colour as the body.
The Highline Trim is more stylishly design with chrome stripes on the radiator grille and around the fog lights. Complete with 18-inch aluminium wheels, a chrome rear bumper bar, and leatherette/leather fabric on the interior, this model is more equipped for luxury off-roading. Each model is complete with 8-speed automatic transition and the 4x4 models are finished off with a “6-cyl. turbo diesel engine 3.0 l/165 kW V6.”
Since its debut in 2010, the Volkswagen Amarok has evolved to become a more powerful, stylish and comparable machine alongside its competitors. In 2016, Volkswagen updated the Amarok’s design for more visibility, spaciousness and comfort. They designed an entirely new, modern front and rear end, and a dynamic interior with a new dashboard, multifunctional steering wheel and new “infotainment system.”
When you find this high-powered and rugged machine on a used car pitch, it is best not to pass it up when it matches its competitors nearly every step of the way.
