Bakkie to the future
From bare-bone basics to transforming load beds
The South American market always seems to get the coolest small bakkies (Volkswagen Saveiro, anyone?) and, if the new Volkswagen Tarok Concept is anything to go by, it looks as though we’ll be envying our Brazilian counterparts even more Styling Stays
Volkswagen claims the production version of the Tarok will scarcely differ from what you see here, although the heavily digitised dash and panoramic sunroof are unlikely to make their way to the end product.
Fuel For thought
The Tarok concept is powered by a 1,4-litre turbopetrol developing 110 kw. As is often the case in the South American market, this unit can run on pure ethanol or a petrolethanol mix. At launch, the Tarok will feature a 2,0-litre turbodiesel with 110 kw on tap.
