CV NEWS: VOLKSWAGEN More road reports at www.companycarandvan.co.uk Amarok gains new entry model as range proves ready to work New entry-level V6 3.0 TDI 163PS model joins the range Pick-up buyers looking to put Volkswagen’s award-winning Amarok on their driveways, worksites or grounds can now do so for less with the introduction of the new Trendline V6 3.0 TDI 163PS model at just £24,510 (basic, excluding VAT and OTR). Following the introduction of a manual gearbox option in November last year, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is meeting customer demand by adding a new 163PS version of its acclaimed TDI V6 engine to the line-up. The new powerplant sits just below its 204PS and 224PS siblings in the new line-up, and packs serious punch thanks to its 450Nm torque output. With 24 valves and overhead camshafts, the power unit meets the latest Euro 6 emissions standard, and features a host of fuel-saving BlueMotion Technology advances. It drives through a six-speed manual gearbox and delivers power to the road via a selectable 4MOTION four-wheeldrive system. In terms of performance and economy, the new V6 3.0 TDI 163PS model has a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 3,200kg, a maximum payload rating of 1,073kg and can tow up to 3,000kg (braked trailer). It is capable of reaching 62mph from rest in just 9.8 seconds and has a top speed of 110mph. CO 2 emissions are 228g/km, while fuel consumption on the combined cycle is 32.5mpg. The new model is available in Trendline trim only, and comes with a host of creature comforts including 17” Posadas alloy wheels, Climatronic air-conditioning system, Composition Media Radio with 6.33” touch screen, App-Connect and cruise control. Order books for the new model are open now, with the first deliveries expected in May. And if the arrival of the most affordable Amarok yet wasn’t enough to tempt buyers, its inclusion in Volkswagen’s diesel scrappage scheme could make the deal even sweeter for buyers looking to trade up. Launched in September 2017 to encourage the exchange of latest generation, loweremission new vehicles, in tandem with the removal of older, Euro 1-41 emissions standards vehicles from the UK, the scheme means that buyers could receive an incentive of £2,000 against the cost of their new Amarok. To qualify, customers need to trade-in a vehicle that complies with pre-Euro 5 emissions and has been owned by the buyer for at least six months. All vehicles must be registered before 30 June 2018 to qualify.

Progressively more stringent Euro standards have been implemented since then, helping to lower emissions still further. The current ‘Euro 6‘ standard that all new petrol and diesel cars must meet is the toughest yet.
