The front end of the Tarok Concept, finished in a turquoise shade of “Cypress Metallic”, shares an unmistakeable bond with other Volkswagen SUVs, including the new T-Cross and the large Atlas. Even so, Volkswagen Design is exploring uncharted ground with this pick-up, giving it a highly individual look. This is something that is typical of Volkswagen; vehicles can be clearly recognised as products of the brand on the one hand while being distinctive as a specific model on the other. The extra-high bonnet, two wide chrome shafts in the radiator grille with integrated dual LED headlights positioned on the outside, a high-gloss black horizontal crossbar at the bottom of the radiator grille, a robust and wide cross-support with Tarok lettering on the bumper, LED daytime running lights positioned on the outside of the bumper with integrated air inlets and anthracite skid guard all come together in the pick-up’s horizontally aligned front end to guarantee a distinctive design. The A-pillars and roof – both finished in high-gloss black – are another distinctive element in the front end. The two elements work together to make the windscreen appear extremely large as it merges into the roof area virtually seamlessly. The Tarok Concept is therefore especially bright in the roof area.
Functional design characteristics of the front end
The way the front end elements are arranged highlights the everyday functionality of the SUV: the LED headlights are positioned high up in the protected area. Meanwhile, the crossbar with Tarok lettering and skid plate are able to deal with even the toughest offroad driving conditions.
