2018 VW Golf Alltrack Overview

The base engine in the Golf lineup is the automaker’s turbocharged 1.8-liter I-4 that produces 170 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. The turbo-four is mated to some five-speed manual or six-speed automatic at the hatchback or a six-speed guide or six-speed dual-clutch automatic at the Golf SportWagen or Golf Alltrack version. Front-drive is standard on the hatchback and SportWagen, while all-wheel-drive is discretionary on the SportWagen and standard on the Alltrack.

The sporty Volkswagen Golf GTI is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 which makes 220 hp and 258 lb-ft and can be conducive to a six-speed guide or six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The former Performance package has become standard and includes VAQ differential and larger brake pads. A DCC adjustable suspension is only offered on the Autobahn trim.

At the peak of this Golf food series is your Golf R using a 292-hp version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter, which can be mated to either a six-speed guide or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to all four wheels. The DCC adjustable navigation and suspension are optioned together.

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay can be found on even the base version. Other standard features include automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, plus a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Optional equipment includes keyless entry/start, 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, LED headlights, and more.

2018 VW Golf Alltrack Design

The Golf R, such as the GTI, is an understated car. But it’s this subtlety that makes the top-end R version so visually attractive. It doesn’t need a big, shouty wing or striking red accents — it is stable in its own level of functionality without resorting to these crude automotive threat gestures. Its barely angrier fascia, 19-inch brakes, and quad exhaust tips are persuasive enough. Unlike much more over-the-top offerings (we’re looking at you, Civic Type R), the Golf R is efreshingly subtle, {and to many onlookers, completely inoffensive.


The Golf’s cottage is simple, trendy, and covered in high quality materials. Black leather and soft-touch black plastics cover almost every surface within hands reach, although there’s conservative use of piano black plastic on the infotainment display and brushed aluminum on the gear lever. But if we had to dock the Golf R cottage everywhere, it’d be for its dull design. The new Jetta has exactly the exact same problem — the materials are great and the design is clean, but it all feels a little too conservative and business-like.

2018 VW Golf Alltrack Safety

The Golf SE includes blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic attentive, and front assist with pedestrian detection, while the SEL adds adaptive cruise control. Lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, parking sensors, and park assist are a part of a package.
