Golf Alltrack features the latest 4MOTION all-wheel drive and unique exterior and interior styling
New more powerful 1.8 litre turbocharged TSI engine mated to a six-speed DSG transmission
Canberra, September 2015. For the first time Volkswagen has released an Alltrack version of the Golf allowing customers to explore further than before. Based on the spacious and practical Golf Wagon, the new Golf Alltrack offers an increased level of unique standard features and the added ability to explore with confidence.
The Golf Alltrack sets benchmarks in its class in terms of its ability to handle both sealed and unsealed roads as a wagon- a unique concept in this car segment.
This is due to the model’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system featuring the latest generation Haldex coupling.
Also new to the Golf range is the Alltrack’s TSI petrol engine. The powerful 1.8 litre turbocharged TSI engine makes 132kW and 280Nm, while still offering a low combined fuel consumption figure of 6.7 litres per 100km. This is achieved with the assistance of BlueMotion Technology which comes standard on the Golf Alltrack and includes engine start/stop and brake energy recuperation, as well as a coasting function; a feature of the Alltrack’s Eco drive mode – one of several adjustable settings available as part of the Alltrack’s driver profile selection.
The Golf Alltrack’s driver profile selection feature enables drivers to select an appropriate pre-determined drive setup from a choice of eco, sport and, unique to the Alltrack, off-road mode. The Golf Alltrack comes standard paired with a six-speed DSG transmission, which also ensures the best possible performance and efficiency from the 1.8-litre TSI engine.
The Golf Alltrack holds a commanding presence on the road among other Golf Wagon models, and is distinguished by a number of external visual cues that both enhance the vehicle’s appearance and its practicality on dirt roads.
The Golf Alltrack displays sits higher, thanks to a higher ground clearance of up to 20mm above a standard Golf Wagon model, while wheel arch mouldings and flared side sills offer additional body protection. Rounding off the Alltrack’s exterior, newly designed bumpers with Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering function make the vehicle instantly recognisable from the front, while the standard 17-inch ‘Valley’ alloy wheel , specifically created for the vehicle and unique rear badging, once again showcases the Golf Alltrack’s sporty credentials and complete the Alltrack-specific look.
The car’s stylish exterior design continues inside the Golf Alltrack, with sophisticated interior styling defined by such details as Vienna leather appointed upholstery, a leather multi-function steering wheel and gearshift knob, as well as ambient lighting in the door trim and LED reading lights.
The Golf Alltrack also features the latest in Volkswagen’s infotainment technology, with the added convenience of the innovative App-Connect system, which features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® systems, which allow drivers to access content from their latest generation smartphones to access music, messaging and navigation. This integrated technology is displayed in high definition via the 6.5-inch Discover Media unit, which also offers USB, SD card and AUX-in connectivity.
At its heart, the Golf Alltrack imbues all the outstanding qualities of the Golf Wagon, and adds more. Providing generous boot space with the ability to hold 605 litres of cargo volume even with 5 adults on board, the Alltrack is the perfect vehicle for extra-long weekends. The cargo area offers an impressive interior length of 1,055mm up to the back of the rear seats and 1,831mm of interior length up to the back of the front seats. With convenience and practicality in mind, the Golf Alltrack also provides owners with a luggage partition net, shopping bag and load restraint hooks, interior illumination and a 12V socket in the boot.
As a Volkswagen, the Alltrack has been engineered to feature the latest safety systems, to ensure maximum passenger protection. The new Golf Alltrack comes standard with multi-collision brakes, a driver Fatigue Detection system, a low tyre pressure indicator, parking distance sensors and reversing camera, ESP and XDL. In addition, seven airbags including front, front side, curtain (front and rear), and driver’s knee airbags have been installed to ensure standard safety features are met, along with safety optimised front head restraints and three-point seat belts.
With an impressive list of standard features and equipment, the Golf Alltrack offers customers a wide range of practical and convenient inclusions. However, should customers wish to enhance their Golf Alltrack even further, two optional packages are available which add value-for-money and a host of luxury and assistance systems.
The optional Driver Assistance Package adds increased safety above the already stellar standard levels of the new Golf Alltrack. Included in the package is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Front Assist with City Emergency Brake (EB), Park Assist and a proactive occupant protection system.
The optional Sports Luxury Package enhances the Golf Alltrack exterior and interior appearance with a panoramic electric glass sunroof, 18-inch ‘Canyon’ alloy wheels, gearshift paddles and dark tinted rear side and rear window glass.
