What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota Hilux pick-up?
Our favourite pick-up truck right now is the Volkswagen Amarok; not only does it have a very practical bed, but it drives really well and has a gutsy 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine. You won’t find soft touch plastics in the interior, but the design is classy and the infotainment system is light-years ahead of the one offered in the Toyota Hilux.
If bed length is your biggest concern, you’ll need a Nissan Navara for its massive load bay. What’s more, the Navara has a powerful engine and a commanding driving position, which will be great for filtering through traffic and picking your route while going off road.
