The New 2017 VW Golf Alltrack Is Perfect for Families
The new 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is an excellent choice for Louisiana families with its cargo capacity and ability to go anywhere. The Golf Alltrack essentially combines all the features you know and love of the Golf with the efficiency and handling of a SportWagen and versatility of a compact SUV, delivering the best of all these vehicles.
Under the Hood
Driving the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack puts you in control of a 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder TSI engine with direct injection. Thanks to this engine, you are in control of 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet. The 6-speed manual transmission or the 6-speed DSG featuring Tiptronic put you in control with ease.
No matter how you choose to configure your 2017 Golf Alltrack, you will always get Car-Net App-Connect as standard. This system includes Apple CarPlay, MirrorLink, and Android Auto so you can connect any type of smartphone with ease.
The Golf Alltrack delivers all the versatility of an SUV or station wagon with ease. Even with the rear seats occupied, you get 30.4 cubic feet. Folding down them down delivers 66.5 cubes, figures you’d expect from a compact SUV, not a wagon. The nice, low loading height compared to these SUVs makes it much easier to access the cargo area.
Accessing the Roof Rack
When you need more space than the expansive interior of the Golf Alltrack can provide, the standard roof rails let you easily attach more items. Best of all, it is easy to reach the roof rack since it is about 4 feet 11 inches high. By comparison, the roof rack on the Subaru Outback is 5 feet 6 inches high, meaning you have to strain to lift items high above your head and shorter people need to go on their tiptoes to tie items down. This is not a concern with the Golf Alltrack thanks to its comparatively low height.
Volkswagen knows that families make safety a priority, which is why it worked hard to design the Golf Alltrack. The efforts clearly paid off, as this vehicle is a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS and earned a 5-Star Overall Rating from the NHTSA. It also has Driver Assistance Features, like Forward Collision Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, High Beam Control, Park Assist, and ParkPilot, in addition to a standard rearview camera.
