Volkswagen Shows Rugged 2017 Golf Alltrack at New York Auto Show

By Philly Murtha, March 21, 2016
Volkswagen this week will introduce a robust production-ready 2017 VW Golf Alltrack at the 2016 New York Auto Show. The all-wheel-drive Alltrack, which is based on the Golf SportWagen and reaches U.S. showrooms this fall, features a more rugged exterior with higher ground clearance compared with the SportWagen. Special interior amenities are included and advanced driver-assistance technologies are available.

The new Alltrack, which features an Off-Road Mode with hill-descent and enhanced traction control, is powered by a turbocharged, 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 170 horsepower and 199 lb.-ft. of torque when partnered with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A 6-speed manual will be offered later.

Protective cladding for bumpers, wheel wells, and side sills is featured while the front fascia incorporates fog lights and a honeycomb grille. The S and SE trim levels ride on 17-in. aluminum alloy wheels, while the SEL rides on 18-in. wheels. All trims feature silver roof rails, matte mirror caps, and a diffusor.

The cabin features leatherette seating in addition to a unique brown leatherette option with aluminum pedal covers, door sills, badging, and ambient lighting. Cargo storage space extends from 30.4 cu. ft. to 66.5 cu. ft. when the split rear seats are folded flat. A 6.5-in. color touch screen, proximity sensor, and rearview camera are standard.

Standard safety systems on the 2017 Golf Alltrack include automatic post-collision braking with available advanced technologies including adaptive cruise, forward-collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane assist, and front and rear park assist.
