2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack updates
Though the focus for 2018 has centered on the all-new 2018 VW Tiguan and 2018 VW Atlas, it was the Alltrack that drew attention last year. Heading only into its second model year, has the vehicle received any major updates? Here’s what you need to know about the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.
New Warranty and Fresh Style
If there’s one thing we never expect to change on a recent addition, it’s styling. For the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, we’re pleasantly surprised to find new LED taillights and daytime running lights that add a bright appearance to the model. Automatic headlights with a built-in rain sensor also help improve visibility while providing added convenience.
What are some other new features for the 2018 Golf Alltrack? The model has received an upgraded MIB II infotainment system in higher SE and higher trims. Instead of the standard being the 6.5-inch screen, this is not reserved solely for the base, S, trim. The SE and SEL now have an 8-inch capacitive touchscreen. The SE also gains Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking, which pair together to help reduce the risk of collisions.

Aside from the same conveniences that the Alltrack offered last year – such as the Off-Road Driving Mode, standard 4Motion AWD and Car-Net App Connect with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay – the Alltrack now offers the People First Warranty. This new warranty for 2018 is twice the length of the previous new car warranty, offering bumper-to-bumper coverage for six years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. Bumper-to-bumper coverage includes the powertrain and any manufacturer defects, providing assurance that the model will last as expected and retain resale value.
With a 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine offering up 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque, is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack the ideal vehicle for you? Share your thoughts with a comment here at the Karen Radley Volkswagen Blog.
