VW Amarok Wins Pick-Up Award - Web Exclusive

The new Volkswagen Amarok distinguishes itself by fantastic driving qualities, both on- and off-road.

Oct 15, 2010

The new VW Amarok pick-up truck, not available in the US but sold almost everywhere else, has been honored with the International Pick-up Award 2011. The accolade, awarded for the first time this year, was judged by a panel representing 23 countries that also elects the International Van of the Year awards.

During the judging process, the Amarok was praised by the jury for its 'effortless off-road abilities', while its on-road performance was judged to be the best among all its competitors.

The jury was also impressed by the Amarok's interior. In particular, the layout and generous space for both front and rear passengers in the double-cab cabin was praised.

On the Amarok's success, the jury commented: 'The new Volkswagen Amarok distinguishes itself by fantastic driving qualities, both on- and off-road. It sets new standards in the pick-up category in respect to load capacity, payload, interior room, comfort, ergonomics and fuel consumption.'

The Amarok boasts EDL (Electronic Differential Lock), ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation), ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Program) with Hill Hold Assist, Hill Descent Assist and off-road ABS designed to significantly shorten stopping distances on loose surfaces.
