2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack West Chester PA
Just when you think things can’t get any better, Volkswagen adds all-wheel drive to its already attractive station wagon. The new 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack available in West Chester PA is an extension of the Golf SportWagen, but with sportier styling and a more rugged design. The first thing you’ll notice are chrome and black body cladding to protect the underside of the model, but it also has aggressive styling cues in the front end, which are especially noticeable with its honeycomb grille and front bumper.
Volkswagen recognizes the SUV isn’t for everyone, with the Golf Alltrack getting better fuel economy than many larger options, especially considering it has the part-time all-wheel drive 4Motion system. This drivetrain allows the model to operate like a front-wheel drive car when extra traction is unnecessary, but when slippage occurs, power is delivered to the wheels that need traction to prevent you from getting stuck in the mud. This opens the world up to more adventures for you and your family.
Volkswagen has found the perfect balance of power and efficiency can be found in turbocharged engines, which is why the Golf Alltrack has a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder under its hood. This will be paired with either a six-speed DSG automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.
What’s the point in buying a new car if it is still offering old technology? The 2017 VW Golf Alltrack features the 6.5-inch capacitive touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a standard rearview camera. An optional Off-Road mode will also add traction optimization.
One of the main reasons shoppers look to a station wagon is for the cargo space. The 2017 Golf Alltrack will be built with the same basic body as the SportWagen, and will therefore have the impressive 30.4 cubic feet of cargo space. This increases to a total of 66.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat.
Drive the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack
With more attractive and rugged styling, the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack is an instant eye-catcher for those on the market for a station wagon. The question is, can it deliver on performance? The 4Motion AWD system will provide a greater feeling of stability and increase its capability for those who like to take their vehicles off paved roads. The 170-horsepower turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine provides plenty of power for day-to-day acceleration needs, and an available dual-clutch automatic transmission offers silky-smooth gear shifts that not only allow the model to run more quietly, but will also help save on fuel.
This available upgraded transmission is one reason shoppers may opt for the Alltrack over the SportWagen. Another one is the driving mode selection, with an “Off-Road” mode that ads features like hill descent control to help optimize traction for a variety of different terrains. An available HMI specific for this mode will provide steering angle, altitude and compass information as part of the optional navigation system.
With all the same features as the SportWagen, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack simply provides a better option for drivers seeking adventure.
