Order books for the new Volkswagen Amarok are now open at Tower Park-based Breeze Volkswagen.

The new Amarok replaces the existing pick-up’s 2.0-litre diesel engine with a 3.0-litre model and currently offers two power options of 204hp and 224hp. All models are fitted with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

In the UK, specifications will follow on from the previous Amarok model, with Trendline at the entry-level, and Highline and Aventura models topping the range.

A further model, Startline, is due to join the range later in 2017 and will house a 163hp engine. This mid-year update will also provide manual gearbox options for existing models.

External changes to the design include a new front bumper, new alloy wheels and a third brake light. Internally the new dashboard design includes a touchscreen media system.

Nick Rees, sales manager at Breeze Volkswagen, says: “We’re really excited about the launch of the Amarok, it’s had some fantastic reviews in the motoring press and continues to be a premium offering in the pick-up market. We look forward to welcoming customers to the showroom to find out more.”

Prices start at £26,255. For further sales information visit www.breeze-volkswagen.co.uk or telephone 01202 713000.
