SAFE BETS

4 x 4 Australia - - Driven -

ASK Volk­swa­gen why side cur­tain airbags weren’t on the must-do list for this facelift, and the car­maker says it had con­sid­ered adding them. How­ever, the re­al­ity seems to be that while the Amarok wears a five-star crash rat­ing, the low airbag count will stay. An Amarok-based, sev­enseat Toy­ota For­tuner ri­val is on the cards for the ute’s next gen­er­a­tion, so we may have to wait un­til then.
