Two new Volkswagen Runner special editions have been released, expanding the brand's local commercial vehicle line-up.
Priced at $26,990 driveaway, and limited to 90 vehicles, is the Volkswagen Amarok Runner special edition.
The 4x2 single cab Volkswagen Amarok Runner features the 118kW/300Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine and six-speed manual transmission from the Amarok TSI300, but adds an accessory alloy tray and unique ‘Runner’ signifiers.

While payloads between the Crafter Van and Amarok vary – 1537kg to 1303kg respectively – both receive electronic stability control, hill hold control, ‘climatic’ air conditioning, daytime running lights and are covered under Volkswagen’s three-year unlimited kilometre warranty.
