Volkswagen’s high-riding Passat Alltrack now has a little brother: welcome the Golf Alltrack to the world.

Based on the current Golf Wagon, the Golf Alltrack benefits from the same ruggedised look and jacked-up design that sets the Passat Alltrack apart from its regular siblings.

Importantly, the Golf Alltrack also gives Volkswagen another small SUV offering that can be aimed at buyers not as interested in the proper SUV proportions of the ageing Tiguan.

Choosing the Golf Alltrack over the Tiguan could also prove a more practical choice: apart from being a much newer model, the Golf Wagon is also longer in both wheelbase and overall length.

The current Tiguan measures 4432mm long on a 2604mm wheelbase, while the Golf Wagon comes in at 4562mm long and rides on the same 2637mm wheelbase of the Golf Hatch.

The next-generation Tiguan is likely to be larger however, with a seven-seat version also believed to be in the works. Reports suggest we’ll see the new Tiguan either later this year, or early in 2015.

As for the Golf Alltrack, a similar offering to the Skoda Octavia Scout, there’s unique bumper designs and black cladding for a more rugged look, along with small skid plates around the bottom edges.

The Alltrack sits 20mm higher than its regular Golf Wagon sibling, adding extra ground clearance.

Combined with the extra height, the Golf Alltrack also gets Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system to make the small ‘SUV’ ready for some basic off-road action.

In Europe, the Golf Alltrack’s engine options will include a 132kW/279Nm 1.8 litre turbo petrol engine, along with a pair of 80kW/249Nm 1.6 and 110kW/340Nm 2.0 litre diesels.

 

Australia

The Golf Alltrack has been confirmed for an Australian launch, scheduled for the first half of 2015.
