2017 VW Golf Attrack DELIVERS!!
After owning a 1997 Subie Outback, 2002 Subie WRX, 2009 Subie Forester XT, and also a 2016 Subie Outback, I'm delighted to be driving my Alltrack! More nimble, tighter, and confidence-inspiring than a typical Subaru. The controls and dials all feel very high quality [eg: all 4 windows have an auto-up/down click]. I was nervous about vinyl-based V-Tex seats, but I've found them to be equivalent to my Subie Outback having real leather in terms of feel and looks. The AWD electronics and center locking differential are AMAZING, and help keep the car pointed true, even in 10 inches of Erie/ Buffalo snow! Yes - the back seat is snug for 6 footers, and the 1.8L engine is tuned for practicality rather than exhilaration, but this car appears to have a lot going for it! The sun roof is HUGE and well sealed. Terrific gas mileage for an AWD vehicle. I wish the lawyers at VW would allow this car to gain towing specs, as there's no logical reason that USA drivers should not be able to tow [Alltracks sold in other countries have tow ratings and recommendations]. The DSG transmission is an engineering marvel, is smooth, efficient, friendly, and enables those of us who used to drive standards a superior way to control the engine's revs. NOW - if my reliability is on par with Subaru, which I'm speculating it will, I'll be THRILLED! [note: 3 out of my 4 past Subarus had great reliability, however, needed a complete engine overhaul due to warped heads and compromised head gaskets at between 140k and 150k miles - a KNOWN and significant Subaru problem. Also, my Forester required a new engine after the Turbo disintegrated into the engine at 58k miles]. All in all - a really solid car!
Does most everything well
Excellent traction. Good ride quality. Relatively quiet. On flat highway 32+ mpg. Not as roomy as Subaru Outback but much more car/wagon like. Handling and braking both excellent. After 2,000 miles would definitely purchase again. Standard transmission pretty good.
Having a Blast with my Alltrack!
I bought the Alltrack SEL in July 2017 after spending months looking at nearly every SUV and crossover in the market to find the best combination of mileage, AWD and user-friendly cargo space. One reason I chose the Alltrack over the Outback and others was because the I needed the cargo space to haul my gear, which tends to be heavy or bulky (even sometimes needing ramps for loading and unloading) and I wanted a low bumper combined with ample cargo room. When I actually took a tape measure to dealers I was amazed at how much higher the liftover heights were on most crossovers and SUVs given that ground clearances were only an inch or two higher. The Alltrack has clever extra storage under the cargo floor as well so overall I'm very happy with cargo capacity. My previous car was a VW GTI that I drove for 10 years (best car I have ever owned) and while nothing in the crossover or SUV market handles nearly as well as the GTI, the Alltrack is superior to all others I drove, and power is comparable to offerings in the price range. The weakest elements in the Alltrack are the rear legroom and the default shifting program on the DSG tranny, which seems to always be in too high a gear. Fortunately there is a Sport shifting mode which works well around town, and the tranny is responsive to the steering wheel paddles. The AWD system is straight out of the Golf R and Audi S3, and the ground clearance is adequate for very rough terrain. I have taken my Alltrack with 400+ pounds of gear on crazy forest routes in Wyoming and drawn stares from drivers of vehicles with twice the ground clearance. Never bottomed-out. I have 14,000 miles in ten months and mileage is at least as good as the 22/30 EPA ratings. Build quality, ride comfort, outward visibility, pano roof and entertainment system (in the SEL) are all excellent. I am over 6' and the seats and front legroom are excellent.

The 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack isn't quite an SUV, and it's not quite an ordinary wagon; it sits somewhere in the middle — quite literally, if you use a tape measure. Based on the Golf SportWagen, the Alltrack features all-wheel drive, a raised suspension that gives it extra ground clearance, and more rugged styling, yet it maintains its long, low wagon shape. It's a compelling alternative to SUVs and crossovers in the same price range.

The Alltrack is based on the Volkswagen Golf, which, though not a huge seller in North America, is one of the most popular cars in Europe and other markets. We like the Golf for its high-quality, no-nonsense cabin as well as its space and utility. Both of those attributes make their way to the Alltrack. The cabin is roomy up front, offering excellent visibility all around, and the control layout is straightforward and easy to use.

There's a marked difference between the front seats on the base-model S and the power-adjustable chairs offered in the top-of-the-line SEL; the latter offer better bolstering and more support, though both have firm cushions in the Germanic style. Backseat space could be better, but in terms of utility, the Volkswagen gives up nothing to rival crossovers: It offers 30.4 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats and 66.5 cubic feet with the back seats folded down.

The Golf Alltrack is powered by the same 1.8-liter turbocharged engine found in other Volkswagen vehicles; it produces 170 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. For the Alltrack, Volkswagen offers either a six-speed manual or a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic, along with all-wheel drive. We've been satisfied with the amount of thrust this engine produces in other Golf variants, but the Alltrack is heavier and can feel a bit sluggish when accelerating from a stop. The EPA rates the Golf Alltrack at 25 mpg combined (22 city/30 highway).

The Alltrack's tall suspension gives it 6.7 inches of ground clearance, not as much as with some SUV-like wagons but adequate for traversing rocky trails without worrying about the underside of the car. The added height does mean that the Golf Alltrack handles somewhere between an SUV and a car on the road, but that shouldn't put off buyers interested in the Alltrack's off-road capabilities.

Volkswagen sells the Golf Alltrack in S, SE and SEL trim levels. Even the base-model S is surprisingly well-equipped, although it lacks any of today's more common driver aids such as automatic emergency braking or blind-spot monitoring. The SE is a nice package for the money, with a sunroof and driver aids, while the SEL offers several tempting comfort and convenience features. Make sure to check out Edmunds' full review and shopping tools, which will help you find the right 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack to fit your needs.
