Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles picks up first 2020 Trophy for Amarok at What Car? Awards

By Swansway Motor Group 16-01-2020


The Volkswagen Amarok has retained its position at the top of the class, having retained its title as Best Pick-up Truck at the What Car? Awards 2020.

The winning model, the Amarok Trendline 3.0-litre TDI V6 4MOTION 204 PS once again won over the hearts and minds of the What Car? judging panel with its unique blend of on- and off-road abilities and all-round quality.

Commenting on the result, editor of What Car? Steve Huntingford said: “Just because a pick-up truck is expected to lead a hard-working life, that doesn't mean quality in other areas must be compromised, and the Volkswagen Amarok presents the most compelling all-round package in the class. In fact, the Amarok even gives conventional SUVs a run for their money.”

The winning model is the entry-level variant, costing £28,600 (RRP ex VAT and OTR costs). In addition to the 204 PS engine, a 258 PS is also available in Highline trim. And in October 2019, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles launched new Black Edition and Aventura Black Edition models which boast extra equipment and styling features.

Commenting on the win, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Carl zu Dohna, said: “I was delighted to collect the inaugural What Car? pick-up award for the Amarok last year, and it’s great to retain the title.

“Amarok sales in the UK increased in 2019, showing our versatile 4x4 is still popular with buyers looking for a workhorse that also has good on-road manners; and I’m grateful to the expert judges at What Car? for recognising its abilities and appeal.”
