Volkswagen presents Tarok pickup in Brazil

Eileen GuzmanNov 09, 2018

Volkswagen has unveiled the Tarok pick-up truck concept at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show, which previews a new model set to be offered in Brazil.

One of Tarok's cleverest design features is the adaptability of its loadbin area, which can be stretched from 1.2- to 1.8m in length.

VW keeps the Tarok purring down road and trail with a 148-hp 1.4-liter TSI four-cylinder, created to run in Brazil as a Total Flex Fuel Unit on either ethanol (E100) or blended gas/ethanol (E22). And thus we admire the classiness of Volkswagen's nod to the Skoda Felicia Fun, buried a little beneath the surface of this Tarok pickup concept.

Sounds a bit of a no-brainer for the UK.

Unlike the aging and conservative interior of the Amarok, the company says that the interior of the Tarok Concept "indicates a new way forward for Volkswagen in the pick-up segment, with its primarily digital design". Owners can tumble the back seats and then fold the lower rear cab panel forward, while the tailgate can also form an extension on the other end. There is a strong probability for it as the press release stated that avant-garde pick-up has the potential to boost Volkswagen range in other global markets. As a result, drivers can also use the back of the cab to transport extra-long items.

Under the bonnet the Tarok concept features a transversely-mounted 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 110kW of power. The suck-squeeze-bang-blow is sent to all four wheels by a six-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter. The dashboard is dominated by a body-coloured strip of plastic which encompasses a "Virtual Cockpit" digital IP, touchscreen infotainment and vents for the climate control. The future series model will start out with a 2.0-litre turbo diesel direct injection (TDI) TSI engine that also delivers 110 kW / 150 PS.
