Volkswagen Amarok International Pick-up Award
Volkswagen Amarok has been named the International Pick-up of the Year 2011.
This accolade, awarded for the first time this year, was judged by the panel that decides the International Van of the Year awards.
It also has a maximum payload capacity of 1,057 kg and maximum towing limit of 2.8 tonnes.
The new Volkswagen Amarok has been honoured with the International Pick-up Award 2011.
On the Volkswagen Amarok success, the jury commented: ‘The new Volkswagen Amarok distinguishes itself by fantastic driving qualities, both on- and off-road. Set for launch in the UK in 2011, the Volkswagen Amarok boasts the largest load dimensions in its class with a load area of 2.52 m² (1,555 mm long, 1,620 mm wide, with width between wheelarches of 1,222 mm), a maximum payload capacity of 1,057 kg and maximum towing limit of 2.8 tonnes.
It has, as its type suggests, picked up the inaugural International Pick-up Award 2011. During the judging process, the Volkswagen Amarok was praised by the jury for its ‘effortless off-road abilities’, while its capacity on-road was judged to be the best against all other competitors.
‘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.’ High praise, indeed.
