2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2017 Subaru Forester

The 2017 model year has been an important one for Volkswagen, as this is the first year that they have had their new Volkswagen Golf Alltrack for sale. Essentially an all-wheel drive version of the Golf SportWagen, there is a lot to love about the Alltrack, and that is something that many are quickly finding out as they compare the rugged Golf to some of the top competitors in the market.

Subaru is one of the most well-known producers of all-wheel drive wagons, and for that reason, we thought it would be helpful to compare the all-new Golf Alltrack to a Subaru model that already has a great deal of name recognition, and that has been on the market for a while now: The Subaru Forester. Though the Forester is undoubtedly capable of some impressive things, the Golf Alltrack does manage to outshine the Subaru in a number of different categories.

Benefits of the 2017 Golf Alltrack

Given the added size that comes from the elongated body, and the enhanced abilities that come courtesy of the all-wheel drive system, Subaru was once the only affordably-priced all-wheel wagon that was available on the market. With the introduction of the Golf Alltrack, however, there is a new sheriff in town, and as you can see from the prices listed in the table above, the Alltrack comes in with a starting price that is more affordable by slightly more than $1,500.
