For the 2017 model year, Volkswagen's interior design team has ditched the old dashboard's rugged styling cues for a more refined look that is more in keeping with the rest of the brand's passenger cars.
The upper section of the dash has been completely restyled with a horizontal design theme. The previous model's round vents have been replaced by rectangular and trapezoidal units, while in the centre of the dashboard there is the company's latest Composition Media and Discover Media infotainment systems.
A metal-look strip now divides the upper and lower sections of the dash. Much of the lower portion of the dashboard, as well as the centre tunnel, looks to be carried over from the current model.
Top-spec Euro models are equipped with a colour display between the tachometer and speedometer, as well as a frameless rear-view mirror and stainless steel pedals.
The 2017 Amarok will also be available with new ergoComfort front seats. Approved by Germany's Healthy Back Campaign, the new seats feature nappa leather coverings, contrasting white stitching, optional heating and 14-way electric adjustment.
The updated Amarok goes on sale down under later this year. Top-of-the-range models will feature the recently announced 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6, which has 165kW of power and 550Nm of torque on hand.
