Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The VW Golf Alltrack is worth considering if you need a practical car with the ability to tackle the odd muddy trail but are not keen on a high-riding SUV. The long equipment list, big boot and fine driving dynamics all help make it an appealing choice.

If you're not planning to head off road, it’s worth bearing in mind that the regular VW Golf Estate is cheaper and slightly more comfortable than the Alltrack, so it will probably be better suited to your needs. 

Overview

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.

  • Surprisingly decent in the rough stuff
  • Big and practical boot
  • Cheaper to run than SUVs
  • Golf Estate is a better buy for most
  • A proper SUV will hold its value better
  • Fiddly and distracting infotainment system
