Update: Volkswagen Amarok Review.

This is probably the most unusual place where you will see the new Volkswagen Amarok single cab, but the VW guys believe that even a workhorse like the Amarok should be tested at the Nürburgring.

The first time we spotted this single cab was in northern Sweden during winter testing but as its public debut gets closer the testing gets more intense.

Under the bonnet, the Volkswagen Amarok is available with a choice of two four-cylinder, turbo-diesel engines – single and twin turbocharged – developing 90kW/340Nm and 120kW/400Nm respectively. Both are mated exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission. Fuel consumption is said to be 7.6L/100km from the low-output model with CO2 figures cracking the sub-200g/km barrier (199g/km).

Engine options are expected to be the same as the dual cab and crew cab, but since the single cab is more of a work horse there could be some changes in the option list meaning that the Highline version could be missing.

And until the public debut is here, the Volkswagen Amarok gets ready for express deliveries on the ‘Ring.
