Car (South Africa) - - TEST -

The Golf 7 GTI pulled up next to me at the traf c lights. The young­sters in­side had clearly recog­nised the V6 badge on the Amarok and I knew what they had planned for when the lights turned green. De­spite be­ing much heav­ier than the GTI, thanks to its grippy 4Mo­tion sys­tem, the Amarok leapt off the line to pull ahead of the GTI, al­beit only brie y. Les­son taught.

Si­mul­ta­ne­ously, I’ve achieved the best tank-to-tank av­er­age yet of only 9,63 L/100 km, an im­pres­sive gure if you take the brawny, burly pack­age into ac­count. Pass­ing 14 000 km, the Amarok has also been checked in at Barons VW in Cape Town for its rst ser­vice. – Wil­helm Lut­je­harms
