Volkswagen Golf Alltrack 2.0 TDI 200 4Motion 5dr DSG Review
Category: Estate car
Section: Version review
If you find yourself in need of a practical car that has some light off-road abilities, the VW Golf Alltrack is worth your consideration. If you rarely tackle muddy trails, consider the cheaper and more comfortable standard Golf Estate instead.
The trimSee full equipment
There's just one trim level available with the Golf Alltrack, but the standard equipment is likely to include everything you need. You get three-zone climate control, 17in alloy wheels, auto-dimming rearview mirror, multi-function steering wheel and touchscreen infotainment with built-in sat nav, DAB radio and smartphone mirroring (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto/MirrorLink).

The 2.0-litre diesel engine pulls well throughout the rev range and offers more than enough shove to take advantage of motorway gaps. The seven-speed automatic gearbox is smooth as it switches through the gears but can require a manual shift down for faster manoeuvres.
