Is Amarok better than Hilux?

It’s better in the HiLux, but only marginally. On the upside, the HiLux comes with rear air vents and a centre armrest, which you’ll miss out on in the Amarok. So from a presentation and functionality point of view, the HiLux is a winner here with an interior that really shines.

Is the Toyota Hilux Amarok South Africa’s most underrated double cab vehicle?

We had requested a Hilux 2.8 GD-6 4×4 Raider in automatic guise, but Toyota could not allocate us one, so settled for the manual version. The lineup includes three products that are regularly among South Africa’s top 10 sellers and one of the country’s most underrated double cabs – the Amarok.

Or at least a splash of colour to spice up the Amarok’s grey-on-black interior.

For many buyers in cities, it will be an ideal alternative to the usual off-road focused top-spec rivals.
