The Volkswagen Amarok brings the firm’s unbeatable image and peerless quality to the double-cab pick-up market. It benefits from the same company car tax breaks as any other contender in this class, but has just as much appeal as a family car as it does as a commercial vehicle. This is mainly down to the space and quality on offer inside. The Amarok is sold only as a double-cab five-seater for now — a single-cab model will follow later — and it stands out with its high-grade materials and solid build quality. As the styling suggests, this car is virtually unstoppable away from the beaten track. The 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine comes with a choice of 120bhp or 161bhp outputs, while there are Startline, Trendline and Highline specs. All feature four-wheel drive, to ensure the car can take the roughest terrain in its stride. Massive dimensions make parking a challenge, but once you’ve got used to how big it feels from behind the wheel, the Amarok is a great deal of fun.
