The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE - — Wheels Reporter.

VOLK­SWA­GEN Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles is in­tro­duc­ing a spe­cial edi­tion Amarok Ul­ti­mate which is the first bakkie in the lo­cal mar­ket with Bi-xenon headlights with LED day­time run­ning lights as a stan­dard fea­ture.

The Amarok Ul­ti­mate is based on the top-of-the-range de­riv­a­tive, 2.0 BITDI 132kW 4Motion High­line with 8-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

For ex­clu­siv­ity, the Amarok Ul­ti­mate boasts of nu­mer­ous fea­tures. The Bi-xenon headlights give the Amarok not only im­proved light­ing, but to­gether with the two twin chrome bars on the ra­di­a­tor grille they give the Amarok Ul­ti­mate a greatly im­proved vis­ual ap­pear­ance as well.

Ad­di­tional ex­te­rior stan­dard fea­tures of the “ul­ti­mate” Amarok in­clude sil­ver wing mir­ror cov­ers, dark­ened rear lights with LED num­ber plate il­lu­mi­na­tion, pol­ished 19-inch Can­tera al­loy wheels, spe­cial “Ul­ti­mate” let­ter­ing, a sil­ver-coloured de­sign un­der­body guard and a styling bar as well as sill side­bars in chrome.

The Amarok Ul­ti­mate also comes as stan­dard with Park Dis­tance Con­trol with Rear As­sist re­vers­ing cam­era, elec­tric fold­ing and heated wing mir­rors, heated front seats in ei­ther Vi­enna or Al­can­tara leather, RCD 510 Ra­dio/ CD sys­tem with mo­bile phone prepa­ra­tion, rain sen­sor with in­ter­mit­tent wipers, auto dim­ming rear view mir­ror and spe­cial velour floor mats.

The op­tional fea­tures of­fered with the Amarok Ul­ti­mate are the RNS 510 Ra­dio/Nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem with 6-speak­ers and elec­tri­cal in­ter­face for ex­ter­nal use.

The Amarok Ul­ti­mate re­tails for R600 200, which is less than the sug­gested retail prices for the dou­ble cab Land Rover 110 at R614 100; or that of the top spec Nis­san Navara (R672 500); but dearer than the ask­ing price for the Toy­ota Hilux Leg­end 45 (R563 900) and Ford Ranger Wildtrack (R596 900).
