WHAT YOU GET
The Sportline (as tested here) is the cheapest of the Amarok V6 models and looks more like a commercial-grade rather than a recreational ute. Standard equipment includes front and front-side airbags (but no airbags in the rear of the cab), tilt-and-reach steering wheel adjustment and four-wheel disc brakes – equipment that’s also standard with four-cylinder Amarok models. The Sportline V6 also has dual-zone climate, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, Apple CarPlay, 18-inch alloys and a 12V outlet and lighting for the tray. Unlike the more expensive Highline V6, the Sportline doesn’t have sat-nav, sidesteps, chrome sports bar, tyre-pressure monitoring, bi-xexon headlights and LED daytime running lights.
