VW Amarok voted International Pick-up 2011
The accolade, awarded for the first time this year, was judged by the same panel that elects the International Van of the Year awards and which represents 23 countries.
During the judging process, the Amarok was praised by the jury for its ‘effortless off-road abilities’, while its capacity on-road was judged to be the best against all other competitors. The jury was also impressed by the Amarok’s interior, in particular the layout and generous space for both front and rear passengers in the double-cab cabin.
On the Amarok’s success, the jury commented: ‘The new Volkswagen Amarok distinguishes itself by fantastic driving qualities, both on- and off-road. It sets new standards in the pick-up category in respect to load capacity, payload, interior room, comfort, ergonomics and fuel consumption.’
