Buying

What should I be paying?

Clearly, you’re going to pay more for an Amarok than you are the equivalent Ford Ranger, and the VW is also priced higher than things like the Toyota Hilux and Isuzu D-Max. There’s a strong amount of kit even on the entry-level £34,055 (excluding VAT) Life trim though, with 17-inch alloy wheels, air con and a 10-inch infotainment screen with an eight-inch digital dial display.

That also comes with a handy rear-view camera and adaptive cruise control, but make the step to the £42,505 exc VAT Style trim and you get a larger 12-inch infotainment screen, a 360-degree camera system and additional active safety systems.

PanAmericana is the more off-road ready trim. That starts at £47,255 without VAT and before any options, but it includes chunky styling features, a locking diff and a premium leather interior. 

At the top of the tree is the Aventura, which comes with lots of chrome, 21-inch wheels and tech like Park Assist Plus.

Volkswagen has said that it’ll offer all Amaroks sold in the UK with a five-year warranty, five services and five years of roadside assistance thrown in. And of course, there will be a full range of accessories including a bike holder, hardtops for the cargo bed, manual or electronic roll covers and snorkels.
