Volkswagen has added a new member to the Golf family for the 2017 model year, the VW Golf Alltrack. Now the Golf lineup has two wagons, the all-new Alltrack and the SportWagen. Though on the exterior, they may look rather similar we have compared the differences between the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2017 Volkswgen Golf SportWagen to show how the two Golf wagons are unique in their own way.
Essentially the 2017 VW Alltrack is the off-road version of the SportWagen and that is truly where the differences between the two Golf wagons are more prevalent. The Alltrack and the SportWagen are powered by the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder TSI engine that produces 170 horsepower. The 2017 VW Golf SportWagen does offer available all-wheel drive for the new model year but front-wheel drive is standard whereas the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack is only offered as an all-wheel drive model.
