While VW is known for constant improvements on tried and true ideas, it is also known for making innovation in response to consumer demand. With the 2017 Golf AllTrack, VW has taken the SportWagen to the next level. Designers and engineers found ingenious ways to combine off-road driving, sportiness, and value into one vehicle.
VW Golf Power
Over the years, VW has shown the world just how much power you can pack in the smallest engines. Using its famous 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine, it still gives an output of 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. The Haldex-based, 4Motion all-wheel drive comes standard. This system will shift as much as 50 percent of the available torque to the rear axles if it senses that there is slipping.
VW Golf Off-Road Mode
If there was any doubt about its intentions, there is an actual off-road mode built in. This includes hill descent control, an off-road display mode that includes a compass and steering angle, and a dedicated traction control setting. Additionally, there is an extra inch of ground clearance than on other Volkswagen models.
VW Golf Sporty
The Golf AllTrack shows that SUVs can still be pretty fun to drive. It comes standard with some of the most fun features that are available on VW models, such as a 6-speed, dual-clutch transmission. Next year, a 6-speed manual will be available.
VW Golf High Tech
Performance, power, and technology come with the AllTrack. Standard features include a 6.5-inch touchscreen with proximity sensor, a rearview camera, and VW’s Car-Net app suite.
VW Golf Affordable
For an automatic transmission, who would expect this to be only $24,995*? It also gets respectable gas mileage. The AllTrack is currently estimated at 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway**. These are very respectable numbers coming from a non-hybrid SUV. Like with other VWs, low maintenance and upkeep considerations also add to the overall savings. Finally, the resale value is among the highest in the industry.
