Cited as "the most capable pick-up we've tested", the Tow Car Awards 2017 have awarded the Volkswagen Amarok top of the class in the Pick-Up category.
Judged by Practical Caravan, What Car? and The Camping and Caravanning Club, the Amarok was put through its paces during a rigorous test process, where the judges seek vehicles that tow brilliantly, have practical features to make a tow car driver's life easy, and which are enjoyable to live with every day. Also included in the final decision-making process is the vehicles value for money, safety standards and resale values.
David Motton, Tow Car Editor of Practical Caravan magazine, said "Pick-ups haven't been covered in glory at past Tow Car Awards, but we're so impressed by the Amarok that we've given it a gong." - and well deserved we think it is too!
The Volkswagen Amarok 3.0-litre TDI 224 PS Aventura trim was the specific model that saw them presented with this fantastic accolade - a trim which, in addition to all the standard features on Trendline and Highline models, includes front fog lamps with cornering lights, Ravenna Blue metallic paing, 19" 8J Milford alloy wheels and Discover Media navigation system with 6.33" touch screen and voice enhancer. What more could you want from such an all-round, fantastic vehicle?!
We can expect to see a manual 204 and 163 PS later on in the year, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that.
