2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Elgin IL
The Golf family is one of the most celebrated in the current lineup of Volkswagen models. With versatile hatchbacks, nimble performance cars, and clever wagons, the Golf lineup is a shining star in the Volkswagen crown. A new member of the family is about to join for the 2017 model year, and it looks to take the foundation of the Golf SportWagen and kick it up a notch. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack in Elgin IL is not your grandpa’s station wagon.
If you are looking for a vibrant and sporty ride, look no further than the all-new Golf Alltrack. On the outside, you can already see from its rugged appearance that, although it was built with underpinnings in the Golf family, it means to stand out all on its own. It offers plenty of power under the hood, and the interior is unique and upscale, making this a car you won’t ever want to stop driving.
The beating heart of the Golf Alltrack is a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine capable of producing 170 horsepower and 199 pounds per foot of torque.
Standard features such as a 6.5-inch capacitive color touchscreen with proximity sensor, rearview camera, and VW Car-Net App-Connect makes it easy to stay in touch with the outside world.
The front fascia incorporates foglights and a unique honeycomb grille, and special cladding for key body pieces provides protection for its off-road journeys.

When you see a wagon, it may not initially strike you as a bold car that you can expect to take you on rugged dirt roads on any number of adventures. The Golf Alltrack, like its Golf SportWagen predecessor, aims to blow that stereotype out of the water. The vehicle’s defining characteristic is its 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system. The 4MOTION system uses the latest Haldex-5 coupling, which is activated via electro-hydraulic oil pump. Under normal driving circumstances, the Alltrack rides like a front-wheel-drive car to achieve better fuel economy. When the system detects a wheel slip, up to 50 percent of the drive torque can be shipped over to the rear wheels for better traction.
The Alltrack has a Drive Mode selector that includes “Off-Road Mode.” This drive mode offers hill descent control and optimizes traction for rougher terrain. You can take this vehicle just about anywhere, and with a roomy trunk and advanced technology at your fingertips, you’ll look forward to every drive—even if it’s just to the grocery store.
