Volkswagen Amarok Dark Label hits UK showrooms

200 special edition Amarok Dark Label utes arrive in the UK.

VOLKSWAGEN Commercial Vehicles has let loose its special edition Amarok Dark Label onto UK showrooms.

Much like what Nissan did with its Navara N-SPORT Black Edition last year, VW Commercial Vehicles has launched a can of black paint at its Amarok Highline to create the special-edition model.

Like the Nissan, the changes are aesthetic – 18-inch Rawson alloy wheels; matte black mirror housings, side bar and rear bar; black door handles; a black rear bumper; and all complemented by an exclusive Carbon Steel grey metallic paintjob – with a few practical additions thrown in: rain-sensing windscreen wipers; automatic headlight control; and power-adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors.

The interior also received a touch-up, with Alcantara and chrome silk gloss prominent. Other interior niceties include front seats with manual lumbar support, Dark Label floor mats and Discover Media with 6.33-inch touchscreen.

Not surprisingly, the powertrain remains unchanged, with Volkswagen’s V6 3.0TDI 150kW/500Nm engine pairing with an eight-speed auto and permanent four-wheel drive.

The Dark Label is priced from £33,650, with production limited to around 200 units. UK punters can order their dark steed now, with the first deliveries scheduled to arrive in May this year… Australians cannot.
