One of which will be spawned from the all-new Volkswagen Tarok Concept showcased at the 2018 Sao Paulo Motor Show.

Volkswagen has succeeded in merging the practical advantages of the Tarok Concept with a lifestyle-oriented design. Other exterior styling elements include a front end inspired by the Atlas Tanoak, sunroof, LED lighting, roof bar and sculpted sides. "The Tarok's DNA adds an exhilarating dynamic to the segment".

Speaking of the bed, the Tarok's defining feature is the variable loading area that communicates with the cabin.

The floor space can be extended by opening the tailgate or using the brand new mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down, meaning drivers can also use the back seat in the cab to transport extra-long items. The near-production small pickup is influenced heavily by smart, modern SUVs but still does serious work, carrying payloads up to 1 tonne (1.1 ton) in an extendable bed that grows around cargo.

Inside, you'll find a colour-coded crossbar in Cypress Metallic that stretches across the entire facia and surrounds a glass-covered infotainment system, digital air-conditioning controls and digital cockpit. VW has already said that a production version of this concept will launch in Brazil "soon" with "barely any changes" from the concept vehicle.

Under the bonnet the Tarok concept features a transversely-mounted 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 110kW of power.

According to the automaker, the production model will start out with the 2.0-liter turbo diesel known as TDI, as well as the 2.0 TSI.
