Volkswagen presented a compact pickup

VW Tarok Concept Breaks Cover, Previews Global Compact Pickup Volkswagen Tarok pickup revealed

If the new truck, called the Tarok, looks pretty much production ready, that's because it is.

The Tarok concept continues with the success story of the Saveiro which began back in 1983 in South America.

The Tarok has a flip-down wall behind the rear seats that extends the length of the bed from less than four feet to over six when the seats are folded and nine if the tailgate is also opened. And thus we admire the classiness of Volkswagen's nod to the Skoda Felicia Fun, buried a little beneath the surface of this Tarok pickup concept. The concept features modern amenities like a digital instrument panel and large infotainment screen.

Volkswagen has yet to confirm when the Tarok will go on sale in Brazil, or even if other markets will get the pick-up. Bischoff continues: "The Tarok's DNA adds an exhilarating dynamic to the segment".

$30 wireless earbuds? Sure, why not?
The surface of both earbuds is touch-sensitive and can be used to execute actions like play/pause music, handle calls, and more. Not all smartphones have the tap-to-wake feature, so this feature in the AirDots Youth Edition might come in handy.

Underneath the Tarok Concept's stylish exterior design that combines an urban SUV and off-roader lies a powerful 1.4-litre TSI flex-fuel engine that develops 150 PS. Power is sent to all four wheels via the 4Motion system with terrain control and the rear suspension features independent multi-link arrangement.

One of a special five-meter pickup will be folding the lower part of the rear wall of the cockpit: with its help it is possible to increase the useful field of loading for transportation of long goods.

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

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). Analogous to this variability, the maximum load is correspondingly high at around one tonne. The production version of the Tarok will be available with a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel motor cranking out 110kW of power.
