Volkswagen Amarok’s more affordable versions have been shown for the first time, ahead of the launch of the ute range in local showrooms early next year.
An image of the mid-range Volkswagen Amarok model grades available in the 2023 range has surfaced, ahead of the first Australian showroom arrivals of the vehicle as early as next year. These include the eponymous ‘Amarok’, one-model-up Life, and the mid-grade Style.
At Volkswagen’s official unveiling of the new Amarok last month, all the photographs published focused on the high-end, road-focused Aventura and off-road PanAmericana versions, but there was no picture of the more affordable workhorse version.
While brief sketches of the front ends of the other three model grades were briefly shown during the global unveiling live-stream of the new Amarok, those sketches included a base model designated simply as Amarok, and two mid-grade models designated Amarok Life and Amarok Style.
Aventura and PanAmericana – the two models that will be available in Australia – will be powered by 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engines, 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder engines or 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 diesel engines, depending upon the model.
There are two main points that can distinguish the standard Amarok (above) from the Amarok (below). In addition to the black bumper and door mirrors, which is expected to be available in Australia, the Amarok will have standard (non-matrix) LED headlights, and a silver grille with four ‘notches’ (between the VW badge and headlights).
For example, in the Amarok Life (below), the bumpers and mirrors, as well as the door handles, have body-coloured finishes.
Amarok Style sits somewhere in the middle of the range, which is characterized by a different grille design (with two ‘notches’ rather than four), silver door mirrors, a matrix LED headlight upgrade, and a revised front grille design.
Below these three model grades is the Aventura (pictured below, in blue) and PanAmericana (pictured below, in brown), both of which feature a unique front bumper, including an ‘X-design’, as well as various other exterior and interior features.
The official sketches may not be as representative of the final vehicles as it is uncertain how they relate to the specs published by Volkswagen Australia, however the differences between the model grades don’t contradict this information.
Additionally, buyers from overseas markets will also be able to choose from a two-door, single-cab pick-up model in addition to the dual-cab body model offered in Australia – however, this model will not be available for sale in Australia.
