Hi Gerry,

Used privately, commercial vehicles are taxed according to their engine size. That's not too bad if you're talking about the older 2.0-litre version of the Amarok, which would cost €710 to tax privately. But if you're referring to the newer model with the 3.0 V6 TDI engine, then I'm afraid it's going to cost €1,494 a year instead.
