Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has introduced a special edition Amarok Ultimate, the first bakkie on the South African market to feature Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights as a standard feature. Amarok Ultimate is based on the top of the range derivative, the 20 BiTDI 132kW 4Motion Highline with 8-speed automatic transmission.
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, VW said.
Additional exterior standard features 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.
Standard features are Park Distance Control with Rear Assist reversing camera, electric folding and heated wing mirrors, heated front seats, RCD 510 Radio/CD system with mobile phone preparation, rain sensor with intermittent wipers, auto diming rear view mirror and special velour floor mats.
Optional features are the RNS 510 Radio/Navigation system with 6-speakers and electrical interface for external use.
The Amarok Ultimate retails for R600 200 (Vat Included).
