Volkswagen has been known for making vehicles that are typically elegant to look at while also being capable on the move. Fluent lines, straight cuts, upmarket cabin - Volkswagen products are meant for the discerning, at least here in India. The Amarok though has been a rebel. And the updated Amarok may well take its bad boy credentials and push the bar a bit higher. Teaser sketches revealed of the updated midsize pickup show the Volkswagen Amarok frolicking around in water and slush, underlining that this model is still unlike any of its siblings and even a cut apart from the model it will soon replace.

The latest Volkswagen Amarok will have a bolder face than ever before.

Based on the Ford Ranger, the Volkswagen Amarok does have its VW credentials - wide front grille with the company logo in the circular shape, twin creases on the bonnet, stretched character lines on the side. And yet, the teaser sketches also amplifies the rather boistrous visual appeal of the vehicle courtesy dominant front fenders, chunky side body cladding, prominent roof rails, pronounced wheel arches and towing hooks in the front and back.
