Volkswagen Tarok Concept looks quite ready for production and hence, it would be stretch for us to dub it as concept.

The concept version of the Tarok also features a panoramic sunroof, which may or may not be part of the final package as it's delivered to dealerships. The floor space can be lengthened by opening the tailgate or using a mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down (you essentially temporarily sacrifice the rear seats).

The VW Tarok isn't destined for the United Kingdom or Europe (at the moment), but we'd have thought there would be healthy market for a cheaper, lifestyle pick-up sitting below the Amarok - complete with the tax breaks for business owners.

That seems to be a real possibility, as the press release says "the avant-garde pick-up also has the potential to boost Volkswagen's model range in other global markets". In addition, Tarok equipped digital instrument panel and multimedia system with a touchscreen. "The Tarok's DNA adds an exhilarating dynamic to the segment", declared Klaus Bischoff, head designer at Volkswagen.

One important design feature in the five-seater Tarok Concept is its variable loading area concept.

Volkswagen Tarok Concept is powered with turbocharged 1.4 liter four-cylinder engine that is rated at 148hp. 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 engine is linked to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. 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.

Volkswagen plans to bring the production Tarok to the Brazilian market soon, and says it will be very close to the concept.
