Volkswagen launches 258PS Amarok Highline, most powerful model to date

VW Amarok

Top of the range Volkswagen Amarok Highline models are now available with a new, more powerful, engine.

The 3.0-litre V6 TDI unit develops 258PS and 580Nm of torque. An overboost function provides a temporary uplift to 272PS.

All-wheel-drive (4Motion) and an eight-speed automatic gearbox are fitted as standard.

It promises fuel consumption of 33.6mpg and offers the same payload as the lower-powered Amarok Highline, with 1,112Kg.

Highline adds a host of features on top of the standard Amarok’s already generous specification. As well as items including ABS, ESP and automatic post-collision braking system, climatronic air conditioning, Composition Media infotainment system with touchscreen and App-Connect, Highline gains 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights and side bars, front and rear parking sensors with rear-view camera and Vienna leather upholstery.

The new 258 PS Amarok can be ordered now. Prices for the new Highline model with 258PS engine start at £34,325 (basic, excluding VAT and OTR). The entry-level model to the range, the 163 PS Trendline, costs £24,510 (basic).
