2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Morris County NJ
For those who have been looking for an all-wheel drive station wagon from Volkswagen to come to America, the long wait is over. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack in Morris County NJ is a mix of sporty, efficient and fun with the 4Motion AWD providing a more dynamic driving experience. Not only does this drivetrain provide more stability in winter driving, but more traction on muddy, uneven or slippery terrain as well. This makes it an ideal option for adventurous families unwilling to stay on pavement.
The regular Golf SportWagen also gains an AWD option in 2017, so why shop for the Golf Alltrack? The model has a variety of style elements that serve a functional purpose when it comes to taking the model off-road. Those chrome sidesills and under the bumper aren’t just for show, but are actually durable body cladding meant to protect the vehicle from debris your tires will naturally kick up if you’re driving along gravel or dirt roads. It’s hard to deny it doesn’t also look a touch more aggressive, too.
The same 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine found in many models within the lineup is found under the hood of the Golf Alltrack. This delivers 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque, while a six-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic or six-speed manual transmission offer smooth gear shifts.
There will be three trim levels for the Alltrack, making it a standalone model. Standard features will include 4Motion AWD, 17-inch wheels, V-Tex leatherette seating, interior ambient lighting, a rearview camera and the 6.5-inch MIB II infotainment system with Bluetooth and VW App-Connect features.
One of the main reasons to buy an all-wheel drive station wagon is the extra space it provides, while driving just like a car – because it is one. The cabin has 94.3 cubic feet of space for passengers to stretch out in, while the cargo space sits at 30.4 cubic feet. Seats also fold flat for more room when needed.
