2017 VW Golf Alltrack 4Motion All-Wheel Drive System
One of the Alltrack’s key features is the 4Motion all-wheel drive system. The latest-generation 4Motion system is activated before any wheelspin occurs, helping eliminate nearly all traction losses. When operating under a relatively low load or when coasting, the front wheels are driven and the rear wheels are decoupled, which can help save fuel.
