Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Volkswagen turned the Golf wagon into the Alltrack small-SUV alternative by giving it standard all-wheel drive and slightly increased ground clearance. But despite the rugged posturing, the Alltrack truly triumphs on the road. Sharp steering and quick reflexes make it fun to drive. The car feels substantial, thanks to a quiet cabin and a solid feel. The ride is a touch firm but compliant. Expect 25 mpg overall from the 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder engine. Great visibility, supportive seats, and simple controls are welcome, but modest dimensions limit rear-seat and cargo space, and desirable features such as automatic climate control and power seats come only on the top trim. Forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are all standard for 2019.
