The all-wheel-drive crew cab debuted at the Sao Paolo International Motor Show as a concept, but VW says it is set to go on sale almost as-is. Essentially, the bed can be extended thanks to the folding rear panel that connects it with the five-seat double cab.

If you don't remember the Fun, you need educating; it was a marvellously daft bright yellow pick-up, whose back seats that slid out into the rear deck when you wanted to use them, but which folded back away when you had large loads to carry.
"With its striking targa-inspired roof bar, charismatic front end, three-dimensional LED lighting strip in the rear, and powerful yet stylish side panels, the Tarok concept's expressive design makes it the first pick-up to combine the stylistic elements of an urban SUV with an authentic off-road design", said Klaus Bischoff, head designer at Volkswagen.
With all that in place the Tarok has a loading area that's more than 1.8 metres in length and in weight terms it can also reportedly put up with a tonne.
Inside, the Tarok has a customisable digital instrumentation screen, a high-resolution infotainment system, and colour-coded dashboard and door trim accents.
The Tarok concept is powered by a 1,4-litre four-cylinder TSI engine churning out 110 kW and mated to all four corners (4Motion permanent all-wheel drive is offered) via a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Tarok will initially go on sale in Brazil, but Volkswagen also states that it has the potential to boost its model range in other global markets. 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". When it enters production, a 2.0 litre TDI engine will be added, delivering 150 PS as well.
