Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Inside, its styled to look like some of VWs cars, but there’s no getting away from the Amarok's commercial roots. Pick-ups tend to lead hard lives, so it's not surprising that the interior is decked out with tough, wipe-clean plastics that are a world away from the plush, soft touch materials you’ll find in most modern SUVs.

It's a bit of a climb to haul yourself up into the driver's seat, but once you're in there's a decent range of seating and steering wheel adjustment to help you get comfortable. You probably won’t stay that way on long journeys, though, because the Amarok’s seats don’t offer much in the way of lower back support unless you spend extra on adjustable lumbar support. Visibility isn’t bad, but we’d recommend adding rear parking sensors if you're buying the entry-level Trendline trim.

Entry-level Trendline models do, however, get a 6.3in touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and a DAB radio. The screen is a bit small, but otherwise simple to use by pick-up standards. Sat-nav is standard only on range-topping Adventura trim, although can be added to the cheaper trims if you're prepared to pay extra.
