Ask yourself — what are the primary advantages of a crossover? All-wheel drive? Cargo space? With the release date of the 2017 Golf SportWagen Alltrack fast approaching this fall, Volkswagen engineers have given us a family-friendly alternative. Built on the dynamic and popular Volkswagen Golf SportWagen platform, the new Alltrack takes performance to new levels both on and off road. After a closer look at the official 2017 VW Golf Alltrack specs and features you will find that the Golf Alltrack has the cargo space and off-road chops you would expect from a class-leading crossover.

Golf SportWagen Alltrack Design and Performance Specs

While the Golf SportWagen Alltrack behaves like a midsize sedan on the road, it is equally adept at handling rough terrain and poor road conditions thanks to a distinct off-road design. Additional ground clearance pairs with the innovative Volkswagen 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive system to make the Alltrack a family-friendly off-road masterpiece. Add a turbocharged 170-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a responsive six-speed DSG automatic to the equation and the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Alltrack is the total package for families looking for adventure.

At first glance, the Golf Alltrack looks every bit the part of a class-leading crossover, tailor-made for the trail. A rugged appearance package will add a unique bumper, upgraded wheel wells and side sills that are all built to withstand the bumps and scrapes of rough terrain. The style of the SportWagen Golf Alltrack is made even more attractive with new front fascia, a honeycomb grille and integrated fog lights. Standard trim levels run on 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels while the top-of-the-line SEL grade features 18-inch wheels and silver accents.

Inside the Golf Alltrack, you will discover enough room for camping gear or sports equipment with a cavernous 30.4 cubic-feet of cargo space. Since all work and no play makes for a dull day — the Alltrack incorporates an innovative entertainment system that employs a 6.5-inch touchscreen and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Leatherette interior will provide comfort and style and is available in black or brown. To further amplify the performance of the 2017 VW Golf SportWagen Alltrack, engineers have added an Off-Road Mode that features hill descent control and optimizes traction. An Off-Road HMI display provides a compass heading, steering angle and altitude for when you hit the trail.
