One of the most popular small pick-up trucks in the UK, Volkswagen Amarok is ready to be even more attractive with the introduction of new Atacama Edition, a model that is better equipped and has some new design details. The new Amarok Atacama is priced from £26,850 and features plenty of standard equipment.
The new Atacama Edition is available in three colours, Candy White, Horizon Blue and Deep Black and comes with a raft of design and styling features that include bi-xenon headlights, black rear styling bars, black rear bumper with integrated step and 19-inch ‘Cantera’ alloy wheels. The load bed features a ‘Durabed’ protective coating, while distinctive black foil finish on the B-pillars and unique ‘Atacama’ side decals complete the design package.
Inside there is Vienna leather upholstery, a newly designed leather multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth phone connectivity and Climatronic 2-Zone air conditioning and standard RNS310 sat nav system.
The accesory range includes practical additions such as towbars, tonneau covers and waterproof seat covers, along with styling features including chrome surrounds for the fog lamps, indicators and tailgate handle. All can be fitted by the supplying retailer with most coming with a two-year warranty.
The new Amarok Atacama is powered by a 2.0-litre BiTDI 180 hp engine with a choice of two transmissions: a six-speed manual with selectable 4MOTION four-wheel drive or an eight-speed automatic with permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive as standard.
