Volkswagen Amarok is Bakkie of the Year

The VW Amarok 3.0TDI V6 4Motion Canyon is Leisure Wheels magazine’s Bakkie of the Year.

The German bakkie, up against nine other double-cab bakkies for the crown, scored 90.5% ahead of Ford’s Ranger Raptor (86.3%) and Toyota’s Hilux 2.8GD-6 Legend 50 (85.4%).  The new competition format revolves around Average Joe’s bakkie requirements and not flippant matters such as 0-100km/h acceleration times.

Instead, the competition focused on real-world issues such as fuel consumption, load-carrying ability, towing, safety, handling, 4×4 ability, interior, long-term ownership and, counting 20% of the overall score, a subjective driving test score, as adjudged by five industry experts and professional drivers.
