The vehicles are currently circling the roads of Europe under camouflage, hiding a “striking new design” that VW say will impress Kiwis. General manager of VW Commercial Vehicles NZ describes the new Amarok as “unambiguously more expressive and substantially more impressive”.

Amarok has already been a popular buy among New Zealanders with the new design expected to attract more buyers without losing out on the “hard working reputation” of the vehicle.
