Here’s How The 2017 VW Golf Alltrack Stood Up To A 2-Year Long-Term Test

Ιn November 2016, Kelley Blue Book bought a Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. Their SE model cost $32,195 and came packed with a few optional extras.

The price was bumped by $4,400 with the addition of the Driver Assistance Package, which includes features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and parking sensors, as well as other features. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto came as standard and the infotainment screen resolution wasn’t appreciated at first, but after an update, there was nothing to complain about.

During 2+ years of driving, they put 23,457 miles (37,750 km) on the clock. The Golf Alltrack was used from California to Texas and other destinations, and turned out to be a great partner for any environment. The high ground clearance made sure that it can cope with some arduous terrains, and the 30.4 cubic-feet (860 lt) of boot space, which is about as much as you’d get in a Mazda CX-5, was greatly appreciated, especially with the quick-folding rear seats that create a gigantic cargo area.

The test car was fitted with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that produces 170 hp (172 PS / 127 kW) and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm) of torque. It’s paired to the a dual-clutch transmission that sometimes felt clumsy changing gears, but overall, turned out to be a very nice match for the engine.

In their video review that concludes the long-term test drive of the Golf Alltrack, KBB revealed how much it cost them to maintain, too, as well as lots of other useful information.
