Volkswagen Tarok Concept is dubbed as an amalgamation of digital networked SUV and cleverly designed five-meter pickup. If we simply it for our understanding, it means it would be smaller than Amarok and less work-oriented. Even though it can play the role of work horse but is equally suitable for lifestyle unlike its bigger sibling. The design of Tarok Concept suggests that bodywork with the bed form into a whole piece. The bed is 47.48 inches long but when rear seats are folded and hatched open, the space increases to 73.27 inches long.
