The Volkswagen Amarok Sportline remains a compelling ute option despite some foibles, because of its ripping V6 diesel engine and full-time 4x4 system.
It's not often you get a chance to test cars back-to-back on the snow and the race track, but in places like Queenstown, New Zealand, you're as close to snow-capped mountain peaks as you are to the local circuit. When colleague Scott Collie came back from the BMW Alpine Experience having not actually experienced much in the way of alpine driving, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Volkswagen 4Motion 'Get A Grip' showcase, given the itinerary is entirely dependent on the weather...
