Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

The good news is that the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is every bit as refined and easy to live with as the regular Golf Estate. The steering feels much the same, meaning it’s accurate and provides enough feedback on faster, twisting roads, but is also light enough to make low-speed manoeuvres a doddle.

The 197bhp diesel engine pulls well from low revs and is surprisingly good in the mid-range without the need to swap gears, making motorway overtaking a breeze. The seven-speed automatic gearbox swaps between gears smoothly and can be operated using paddles behind the steering wheel, letting you drop down a gear quickly if you need to.
