The Tarok, described as an "all-wheel-drive all-rounder", attempts to merge SUV and pickup, with a full-size second row of seats and an adaptable load bed which can extend into the cabin by folding those rear seats down or removing them entirely.
A few days ago we showed you a sketch of a new small ute planned by Volkswagen for the South American market that the company made no secret of the fact that it was considering it for a wider audience.
After weeks of teasers, Volkswagen has finally taken veil off the Tarok pickup as concept. There is a strong probability for it as the press release stated that avant-garde pick-up has the potential to boost Volkswagen range in other global markets. Bischoff continues: "The Tarok's DNA adds an exhilarating dynamic to the segment".

The striking feature of the Tarok Concept is its variable loading area concept. VW confirms it by saying it "will soon be offering a series version of the Tarok Concept on the market in Brazil, with barely any changes". The five-seater truck has a back seat that can fold flat and a tailgate that opens to create one continuous bed that is a bit over 9-feet (2775mm) long.
At the outset the Tarok will be offered to Brazilian consumers with a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine (the concept now is fitted with a 1.4L 4-cylinder). If you haven't guessed already, the Tarok is more of a lifestyle-oriented pick-up rather than being an out-and-out workhorse, although it'll to the occasional heavy lifting with its one tonne maximum payload. The production model will also offer the option of a 110kW 2-litre TDI turbodiesel, with other variants and drive configurations likely joining the line-up at a later stage.
Tech-wise, the pickup concept gets VW's Digital Cockpit setup, a glass-covered infotainment system and digital air-conditioning controls.
