Volkswagen is looking to build on the success of the Golf SportWagen with its new Alltrack model for 2017.
“We heard from dealers and customers that they wanted to see a Golf SportWagen with the all-terrain capability that comes from an all-wheel drive system,” said Joerg Sommer, vice president, Product Marketing and Strategy of Volkswagen of America, Inc. “We are excited to introduce the Golf Alltrack to meet the active lifestyle needs of our customers.”
The Golf Alltrack uses the MQB architecture, just like the rest of the Golf vehicle line-up, as well as the turbocharged and direct-injection powertrain. The EA888 1.8-liter, four-cylinder TSI gasoline unit produces 170 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a six-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission: a six-speed manual transmission will also be available later in the vehicle’s lifecycle. (more…)
