2012 Volkswagen Amarok Canyon Concept Debuts in Geneva
The Amarok Canyon Concept is all about being free in the wild to engage in the sport you love - kayaking. To this end, everything from the running gear to the look of the car have been enhanced and changed.
Thus, the body has been raised off the ground by 40mm. Extra lights were added to the top of the vehicle, and because it’s so tall, electrically deployed side-steps were fitted aiding the exit.
The interior comes with a couple of leather seats for your tired bum to sit in, which they will be after you’ve played around in those carbon-fiber kayaks.
The great outdoors will be conquered by a 180 hp version of the 2.0 TDI bi-turbo engine, mated to a switchable 4MOTION AWD system, reduction gearbox and differential lock.
"By tuning its design to an extreme sport, we are bringing the original DNA of the Amarok into focus," emphasized Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, Head of Development at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
