If everyday driving is not that everyday: you are equipped for it with increased ground clearance and heavy-duty running gear, roof railing and a large luggage compartment. The 4MOTION all-wheel drive provides reliable traction on almost all surfaces. You will reach your destination relaxed.
For those who not only drive through the urban jungle, but sometimes also along dirt roads: with its 20 mm higher ground clearance, the Golf Alltrack is equipped for rough off-road usage with robust skid plates at the front and rear and black grained wheel housing extensions.
Its underguard gleams in a stainless steel look at the front and rear and is enhanced beautifully with high-quality paintwork, which is available in standard and optional versions. The front and rear bumpers, which were designed exclusively for the Golf Alltrack, also add a special touch. The robust exterior is complemented by the elegant reflex silver exterior mirror caps, black radiator grille with matte chrome strip featuring the Alltrack logo and an anodised silver roof railing.
Welcome home: the high-quality interior design of the Golf Alltrack immediately grabs your attention. The decorative trim on the dash panel and centre console in the Polar Night black version and the exclusive New Brushed dark metal decorative strips in the doors and above the glove compartment radiate a touch of luxury.
The soft side of the Golf Alltrack is emphasised by high-quality fabric seat covers in the Summits design, made from supple yet robust materials. The seat bolsters in the optional ArtVelours version, available in combination with the optional sports seats, feature an impressive suede leather look. The optional black headliner, the centre armrest and the aluminium look pedals and ambient lighting further refine the atmosphere in the interior and form a perfect contrast to the surrounding countryside.
The standard halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights offer a clear view, even in difficult lighting conditions. Thanks to their headlight range control, which is also included as standard, the headlight range is adapted to suit various load levels.
The optional LED headlights make the most of the design of the new Golf Alltrack. They are energy-efficient and their spectrum, which is similar to daylight, is easier on your eyes. You can also add optional LED fog lights if you wish. These will help you to keep a good view of the road and other road users, even under challenging conditions.
In order to ensure your Golf Alltrack cuts a fine figure on any terrain, it is equipped with impressive Valley 17-inch alloy wheels as standard. If you prefer, you can also fit your Golf Alltrack with the optional Kalamata alloy wheels: these 18-inch wheels are diamond turned and equipped with wheel locks with enhanced anti-theft protection.
Whichever wheels you choose, your Golf Alltrack will offer you impressive traction in either case.
Ready for the request show? The programme features two radios and two navigation systems, all of them perfectly equipped.
The standard Composition Colour radio has a 16.5 cm (6.5 inch) touch-sensitive colour screen that can also play music in both MP3 and WMA formats. It reads SD cards, receives FM radio and has four high-quality speakers.
The optional Composition Media radio comes with eight speakers. It includes all the functions and connection options of the model listed above, plus a USB port and a Bluetooth connection for mobile phones. Its 20.3 cm (8 inch) colour touchscreen also makes it especially convenient to use.
The optional Discover Media navigation system comes with a 20.3 cm (8 inch) colour touchscreen display. It also boasts eight speakers, FM radio, a CD drive that can also play music in MP3, AAC and WMA formats, two SD card slots, AUX-IN and USB ports and a Bluetooth connection for mobile phones.
For those who want even more, the optional Discover Pro navigation system offers innovative gesture control. This allows you to change from one radio station to another or change the system settings in your car, such as the intensity of the instrument lighting, with a single hand movement. It also has a 23.4 cm (9.2 inch) screen that is capable of displaying a clear 3D map. It also features eight speakers, FM radio, a CD drive that can also play music in MP3, AAC and WMA format, two SD card slots, AUX-IN and USB ports and a Bluetooth connection for mobile phones.
All of the systems mentioned above are also equipped with a diversity aerial, which ensures good reception even under difficult conditions.
Do you want to enjoy every nuance of your music with the purest bass and crystal-clear treble? If so, you should listen to the Dynaudio Excite sound system from Danish hi-fi specialists Dynaudio. Eight speakers specially designed for the interior of your car, a subwoofer and a digital 10-channel amplifier with 400 watts of output play the ideal soundtrack for every journey.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) adjusts the sound emissions from every speaker according to its position in the car, so that you hear the sound as if you were in the ideal listening position every time. Whether you like your music loud or soft, and whether you prefer rock, electronic or classical tunes, you will end your journey more relaxed than you were at the start.
Never miss another call, while always keeping focused on the road. Two optional mobile phone interfaces make it easy and convenient to make phone calls while you drive. High-quality sound is assured, thanks to a digital speech processor, an integrated high-end microphone in the headliner and the vehicle's speakers. Connection to the external aerial ensures optimal reception even when signal is poor.
With the Comfort edition, you connect your mobile phone to the external aerial via an inductive (wireless) aerial connection in the centre console. This means you no longer need to buy matching mobile phone cradles. In the Business version, a phone call begun outside the car can also be transferred to the hands-free system via Bluetooth while the mobile phone remains in your pocket. The system can be operated by voice command, via the multifunction steering wheel or using the Infotainment system. Very easy – and exactly how you wish.
The Car-Net Guide & Inform service package is available on request with the Discover Media and Discover Pro Infotainment systems. It enables you to use current data from the Internet and find out in real time if for example there is a traffic jam forming somewhere, or which car park has free spaces. Using the point of interest search, you can discover worthwhile destinations such as hotels, restaurants or petrol stations.
The optional Car-Net App Connect function makes it possible for you to easily connect your smart phone with the optional radio system Composition Media or with the navigation systems Discover Media and Discover Pro which are also optionally available. In this way, selected apps can be operated on your mobile telephone via the touch screen. Your advantage is, however, not just in this simplified operation: numerous applications can process information made available by the vehicle in order to provide you with additional useful and entertaining functions.
Volkswagen provides a total of three interfaces to connect smart phones with a broad range of options: MirrorLink™, Android Auto™ from Google and Apple CarPlay™. At www.volkswagen.de/mobiltelefon you can check to see which of these named technologies is compatible with your smart phone. Please also note that some apps are not on offer for each of these three options and the availability of this technology can vary according to the country in question.
Keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front is reassuring while driving in traffic. Optional adaptive cruise control helps you to do just that.
ACC measures the proximity and speed of vehicles on the road ahead. In queues and traffic jams, the system combines with the optional DSG dual clutch gearbox to brake your Golf Alltrack to a stop and automatically move forward again shortly after. Within system limits, ACC can keep your car a safe distance from the vehicle in front at speeds of up to 210 km/h.
Sometimes the unexpected happens, and emergency braking is required. In these cases, the Front Assist area monitoring system can be useful. Within the system limits, you will receive a warning if the system detects a critical tailgating situation. In particularly critical situations, the system can also assist with braking or can even brake automatically to reduce the impact speed.
The City Emergency Braking system can intervene when you are driving at low speeds in city traffic, while Pedestrian Monitoring can detect, within the limits of the system, if for example a pedestrian steps onto the road suddenly. The assistance system provides relevant warnings, assists with braking or brakes automatically – always within the limits of the system. In the ideal case, this will prevent a collision or at least reduce its severity.
The optional Traffic Jam Assist uses proven functions such Adaptive Cruise Control ACC and lane keeping system Lane Assist to allow easy slow driving in traffic jams. Your Golf Alltrack will track the vehicle ahead and automatically operate the accelerator and brakes within the limits of the system. The vehicle is kept in lane.
The optional Emergency Assist system automatically engages when no driver activity can be detected, and there has been no response despite a warning. The system then tries to both prompt the driver and warn the passengers and other road users with brake jolts, acoustic warnings, the hazard warning lights and gentle steering movements. If the driver still does not take over control of the vehicle, the vehicle will be brought to a standstill in a controlled manner. This allows accidents to be prevented within the system limits.
Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist are part of the driver assistance package.
Manoeuvring with a trailer can become a test of patience if you don’t have much practice. This is because the trailer doesn’t always react as you may expect – among other things, the steering is reversed. The steering angle is decisive for precise reversing, and the optional Trailer Assist trailer manoeuvring system will take care of steering for you. First select reverse gear, press the parking aid button and use the mirror adjustment knob to set the direction in which the trailer should be steered. Your Golf Alltrack will now steer automatically while you just need to take care of changing gear, accelerating and braking. This means you stay in control at all times.
The Golf Alltrack is well-equipped for outings off the beaten track: its special heavy-duty running gear offers ground clearance of 20 mm to prevent it from bumping against the ground – and the additional powertrain underguard protects it from damage at the front and rear.
The Golf Alltrack also offers a practical off-road driving program in addition to these features. This activates several assistance systems at once, improving the driving properties of the Golf Alltrack – and not just away from surfaced roads. The system offers useful assistance in the form of an anti-lock brake system, dynamic parking brake auto release function for complicated terrain, adapted accelerator pedal characteristics and an electronic stability program configured specifically for off-road usage.
Hill Start Assist can prevent the vehicle rolling backwards when you start on a hill, within the limits of the system, and prevents the engine from stalling. It also assists when driving downhill by limiting the engine speed and through braking intervention, helping to keep the vehicle at a constant walking pace.
Controlling your car made easy – even on wet tarmac and potholed tracks: 4MOTION four-wheel drive distributes the engine power across all four wheels as required. This prevents wheelspin and locking so that the car gains secure traction on virtually any surface, and that’s how 4Motion increases your comfort.
Infotainment with a personal profile: thanks to the optional Discover Pro navigation system, you will have access to all important information on the road, and your entertainment programme will be enhanced by the availability of various connections for external audio sources. Its 23.4 cm (9.2 inch) colour touchscreen display presents clear 3D maps.
Innovative gesture control makes operation of the system even more intuitive and convenient: change the radio station or adjust the intensity of the instrument lighting with a single hand movement. You can also adapt your personal settings easily in the driving profile selection function using the Discover Pro and adapt the driving properties of the Golf Alltrack to suit your personal preferences and the conditions on the road.
Choose from NORMAL, ECO, SPORT, OFFROAD and INDIVIDUAL modes – and simply save your settings in your personalised driving profile. They will then be at hand for the next journey. OFFROAD mode is best suited for driving on rough terrain. This mode activates multiple driver assistance systems simultaneously and also improves driving properties further by means of the dynamic parking brake auto release function for complicated terrain. The adapted accelerator pedal and an electronic stability program are configured specifically for off-road usage.
The Golf Alltrack has ample, flexible space for almost all of your plans – from a spontaneous surfing trip to the coast to the weekly shopping trip at the supermarket. Thanks to its particularly low load sill of just 60 cm and a height-adjustable load floor in the luggage compartment, you can also load heavy objects with ease. Even long objects such as ski bags can be accommodated with ease, thanks to the load-through hatch in the centre armrest. The four fastening rings make it easy to secure the load.
If you need more space on occasion, the luggage compartment cover is easy to detach and stow away under the versatile load floor. The optional net partition makes a clear distinction between the load and the passenger area. The load floor, which can be lowered, can even be removed completely to create the maximum load volume of around 1,600 litres.
A glass roof allows more light to enter the vehicle interior, giving you a uniquely generous feeling of space – especially when you open the optional panoramic sliding sunroof. Kids in particular will love the breathtaking view.
The roof consists of two large glass panels, with an electric tilting and sliding function on the front panel. When the sun is too strong, you can cover the panoramic sliding sunroof completely at the touch of a button using the blind underneath.
Combine pleasure with practicality: opt for a high-grip, elegant leather steering wheel that is also multifunctional. These make it easy to accept a phone call or turn down the radio volume, as the controls are located on the steering wheel and are highly intuitive, so that you will not need to take your hands off the wheel to operate them.
Is your Golf Alltrack equipped with the optional DSG dual clutch gearbox? If so, you can change gears effortlessly and without interruption using the paddle on the steering wheel. The leather multifunction steering wheel can even be used to operate driver assistance systems. If you wish, you can also choose a heated version – perfect for cold winter days.
Thanks to the optional Active Info Display, you can enjoy the advantages of an instrument cluster with a high-resolution 31 cm (12.3-inch) colour display. With various information profiles, you can decide which specific data are displayed in the instrument cluster in addition to the usual gauges such as the rev counter, speedometer and odometer.
You can select this information profile quickly and easily using the optional multifunction steering wheel: depending on your precise needs, you can access detailed Driving Data, for example, or show a visual display of your driver assistance systems. This means the display area can be even better used, because you can also show additional data within the tubes.
In the Discover Media Infotainment system, you can decide whether you would like to see the navigation map in the Active Info Display, or have the classic view on the system display. With Discover Pro, both display options are available simultaneously.
