2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack OVERVIEW

Based on Volkswagen’s Golf SportWagen, this new compact crossover SUV comes standard with 4Motion all-wheel drive. Overall length and width are essentially identical to the SportWagen, but the Alltrack rides an inch higher and wears special body cladding.

Volkswagen promotes the Alltrack as delivering the utility of a compact crossover SUV “without compromise in road manners.” Hill descent control is standard, as is an Off-Road driving mode.

What's New for 2017

The Golf Alltrack is an all-new model.

Choosing Your Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

Beneath the Alltrack’s hood, a 1.8-liter, direct-injected, turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual gearbox will be available early in 2017, standard on S and SE models. Until then, a six-speed dual-clutch Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) is standard, and will remain so for the top SEL trim level.

All Golf Alltracks have Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel drive. Fuel economy with the Direct Shift Gearbox is estimated at 22 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway (25 mpg combined). Cargo volume totals 66.5 cubic feet with the backseat folded, or 30.4 cubic feet with it upright.

Three trim levels are available:

S

Standard features on the entry-level Golf Alltrack include an Off Road mode, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen radio coupled to a rearview camera. Also standard are heated power mirrors, silver-color roof rails, LED daytime running lights, foglamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, power-reclining heated front seats, LED ambient lighting, air conditioning, leatherette seating surfaces, eight-speaker audio, and Bluetooth.

When it arrives in early 2017, the S model with manual shift will be priced at $26,670 (destination charge included). Meanwhile, the Alltrack S with the Direct Shift Gearbox stickers for $27,770.

SE

The midrange model comes with a panoramic sunroof, keyless access, pushbutton start, and Fender premium audio, including a subwoofer. Priced at $30,250 with manual shift, the SE stickers for $31,350 with the Direct Shift Gearbox.

SEL

Offered only with the Direct Shift Gearbox, the top-level SEL edition is priced at $33,710. Standard features include a 12-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, VW Car-Net Guide and Inform, automatic headlights, 18-inch wheels, and navigation with a 6.5-inch touchscreen.

An available Driver Assistance package includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, and an automated parking system.

CarsDirect Tip

Adding all-wheel drive and raising the ride height by an inch can hardly transform a SportWagen into a serious off-road trekker. Still, a dose of extra ruggedness is likely to attract some shoppers who don’t care to go all the way to a full-fledged SUV. In that sense, the Golf Alltrack comes across as a potentially clever compromise, capable of modest semi-wilderness adventures.
