A perfect sized station-wagon

Prior to buying this car, we drove a Subaru Outback station wagon. But the current Outbacks are not station wagons any more, they are SUVs, too large for our taste and comfort. The VW Golf Alltrack is just the right size and has all the bells and whistles that the Outback has and some more. We have yet to discover all the features of our Golf Alltrack SEL, but what we have experienced so far has satisfied us that we made the right choice. The handling is very responsive, the view of the outside from the interior is very clear with the large windows, the front and the parking assist systems make driving a pleasure and parking worry-free. The ride is not as soft as we are used to, but that is to be expected in a car capable of off-road travel. All in all we are very satisfied with the Golf Alltrack SEL.

Couldn't be happier

As other posters have noted, VW is not going to bring the long roof to the states any longer (it will live in Europe as a Skoda or Seat I'm sure) so I'm happy I have the privileged of driving a sensible choice while I still can. The SEL trim provides me with everything I need and provides so much tech for the money - try specking another German, U.S. or Japaneses car with the goodies and see how much it costs. Ride and handling aren't GTI sharp but are good enough to make me smile. Living in Colorado, the turbo's forced induction helps me at altitude and it does better than expected off road and in the snow (I use snow tires). Room for my bicycle, very attractive interior, and great to look at outside in the lighter blue color. Saddle colored vinyl seats are very attractive. I'd like to do better than the 25 mpg average but at least it's on regular fuel. Buy one while you still can!

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.

This car is the antidote to Crosstreks!

We were replacing a first-gen Mazdaspeed3 that we loved, but after 10 years we were excited to get something newer with more technology than an aux jack, and wanted something with all wheel drive. No more Mazdaspeed or WRX 5 door meant they were right out, but would otherwise have been the best direct replacements (get on that, Subaru and Mazda). We shopped Crosstreks and while I thought I would enjoy them, they're almost dangerously underpowered. The Subaru salesperson helpfully pointed out that the blind spot monitoring was warning me about a car next to me as i desperately tried to merge, for example (pretty smooth of her). A coworker suggested the Alltrack and the power delivery is so much better my concern about having a slow, boring car went out the window. We wanted all the options and were forced into getting the DSG as a result, but it's growing on me the longer we have it. Definitely the best 'automatic' i've ever experienced. The 6MT cars are like hens' teeth, and in 2018 you were forced to buy the DSG to get the Canyon wheels, LED pivoting headlights, etc. Cornering is very flat and composed, and while no MS3, it pulls hard enough to be satisfying. My son loves the sunroof.

Another one bites the dust!

Had my Alltrack for nearly a week now, and have enjoyed every mile and minute in it so far. It’s the perfect car for me because it’s practical, comfortable, well built, looks great, and, most of all, a lot of fun to drive (with 3 pedals!). Anyone who wants one, better get one fast since VW just announced that it will discontinue the model after this year. Very disappointing that another one bites the dust, but apparently most people want to buy a car that looks like everything else on the road (i.e. SUV’s and pickups). Glad that I got mine in time.
