Vw Amarok Canyon Concept breaks cover at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 6, 2012

It appears that Volkswagen wants to take its commercial vehicles a step further as the German manufacturer unveiled the Amarok Canyon Concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. According to Vw, the new Canyon Concept was configured for the popular extreme sport of ‘freestyle kayaking’.

As a result, the Amarok Canyon Concept is taller (with 85 mm thanks to the body lift kit and tyres) and wider than the standard vehicle and features a three-layer paint called ‘Baladi Orange’.

In addition, a new set of auxiliary headlights were mounted on its roof, as well as the smoked rear lights and the colour-contrasting underbody protection.

The design of the car is completed by the ‘Durban’ type wheels painted in ‘High Gloss Adamantium Dark’. The Amarok Canyon was also fitted with two carbon fibre kayaks securely mounted to the cargo floor and a styling bar in ‘High Gloss Adamantium Dark’ with straps for firmly securing the boats.

All other gear – white-water helmets, flotation devices and rafting shoes – are also stowed securely: the helmets in nets on the front wall of the cargo bed, and the rest of the gear in smaller boxes that can be locked with watertight lids.

The interior features leather seats with two-tone styling, a three-spoke steering wheel and a gear shift lever trim. Under the hood, we find a 2.0 TDI bi-turbo with 180 PS, which provides a maximum torque of 400 Newton metres.
