Volkswagen Amarok autos 2012 With Prices from £16,995 in the UK – Latest info and price for Volkswagen Amarok 2012: Volkswagen has dropped pricing details for the new Amarok pickup truck in Britain. At launch, the Amarok will be offered only as a double-cab in three trim levels and with a choice of two turbo diesel engines.
Prices start from £16,995 for the Startline model and £18,995 for the Trendline, while the range-topping Highline will cost from £21,575
The entry-level powerplant is the 2.0-litre TDI with 122-ponies, which is available on the Startline models. A more powerful 2.0-liter BiTDI with 163-horses is standard on the Trendline and Highline models.
All Amaroks come equipped with VW’s 4MOTION Selectable four-wheel drive system, which allows the driver to choose between rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and low range four-wheel drive through a dashboard-mounted button. All models fitted with this 4WD system have a gross vehicle weight of 3,170 kg and more robust suspension which results in a payload of over 1,045 kg.
In addition to the 4MOTION Selectable system, the Highline model is also available with the option of a permanent 4WD system that reduces payload to below 1,045 kg due to the different settings of the suspension, which is tuned to offer “a more car-like driving experience with improved ride and refinement”, according the German company’s claims.
The 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 plus an array of safety features such as six airbags, ESP, Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Hill Hold Assist, Hill Descent Control, Trailer Stability Control and off-road ABS.
The Trendline model adds two-zone automatic air conditioning, RCD 310 radio / CD player, cruise control, multifunction computer, leather-trimmed steering wheel, handbrake and gear knob, color-coded mirrors, front bumper and wheelarch extensions along with front fog lights and 17-inch ‘Aldo’ alloy wheels.
Finally, the Highline specification is further enhanced with chrome detailing on the front grille, door mirrors and rear bumper, polished stainless steel sidebars, privacy glass and 18-inch ‘Durban’ alloy wheels, plus leather upholstery, heated front seats and rear parking sensors.
