Johannesburg - Black is the new black in South Africa’s bakkie world, this year having seen its fair share of special edition double cabs sporting darkened trim, and the latest to join the dark side is Volkswagen’s Amarok.
The new Amarok Dark Label special edition is now on sale in South Africa for R674 600, available exclusively with the combination of VW’s 132kW/420Nm 2-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, eight-speed automatic transmission and 4Motion permanent four-wheel-drive.
So what sets it apart?
The Dark Label rolls on 18-inch ‘Rawson’ alloy wheels and gets a South African made Maxe styling bar in matte black, with that colour treatment now also applying to the mirrors, door handles and front protection grille.
The edition also gets ‘Dark Label’ door stickers, smoked tail lights, black side sills and tinted rear windows.
