Volkswagen Amarok Is Crowned ‘Ute Of The Year’

The Volkswagen Amarok has been awarded the trophy as ‘Ute of the Year’ in the 2011 Delivery Magazine Awards.

Since its launch in February this year, the Amarok has set a new benchmark in the ute segment.

“The Amarok has revolutionised the ute segment thanks to its class leading fuel economy, safety and design”, said Mr Phil Clark, Director of Volkswagen Commercial.

The Amarok is available in four equipment lines and is powered by a highly-efficient TDI engine with 120 kW of power and a maximum torque of 400 Newton-metres at a low 1,500 rpm. The remarkably low combined fuel consumption from just 7.7 litres diesel per 100 kilometres is unmatched by any other ute.

The Volkswagen Amarok is also the first ute in its class to be awarded a 5 Star rating by ANCAP (The Australasian New Car Assessment Program), making it the safest dual-cab ute in Australia. With standard driver and front passenger airbags, front head/thorax side airbags, Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with Brake Assist as well as Off Road ABS/ASR and EDL, the Amarok is a leader amongst its competitors.
