The Amarok was a relative newcomer to the Bakkie market a couple of years ago, with the introduction of the Single Cab Amarok. Since then VW have seemed intent on making their Bakkie a fierce competitor in the market. The easiest way do to this it make the Amarok more appealing to the masses.
The initial Single Cab version was sold and marketed primarily as a work-horse. Now Volkswagen have given us a more urban version of the Amarok in the shape of a Double Cab with an automatic gearbox.
Having driven the Single Cab Amarok a few years back, we got behind the wheel of the Double Cab Amarok to see how it goes.
