Volkswagen has unveiled the Tarok Concept to the world at the São Paulo International Motor Show. The all-wheel drive all-rounder combines the progressive features of the latest generation of digitally networked SUVs with the versatility of a cleverly designed five-metre pick-up.
Its innovative new features include a large variable loading area, which can be extended thanks to the folding rear panel in the spacious four-door double cab.
- Expressive: Volkswagen has designed the Tarok Concept as a next-generation pick-up
- Innovative: Loading area is extended by a variable double cab rear panel and folding rear seats
- Feasible: The series version of the Tarok Concept will soon be launched on the Brazilian market, with barely any changes.
One important design feature in the five-seater Tarok Concept is its variable loading area concept. The floor space can be extended by opening the tailgate or using the brand new mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down. As a result, drivers can also use the back of the cab to transport extra-long items.
The interior indicates a new way forward for Volkswagen in the pick-up segment, with its primarily digital design. Eye-catching elements include a colour-keyed crossbar in Cypress Metallic that stretches across the entire dash panel. This crossbar surrounds a glass-covered Infotainment system, digital air conditioning controls and a Digital Cockpit.
The Tarok Concept is powered by a 1.4-litre 110 kW / 150 PS four-cylinder TSI engine, which can be driven in Brazil as a TotalFlex Fuel Unit both with pure ethanol (E100) as well as a gasoline-ethanol blend (E22). The TSI engine in the Tarok Concept is also combined with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive.
