Volkswagen’s new Golf-based crossover SUV, the Golf Alltrack, will make its way to Australia later this year.

Revealed in September, the Golf Alltrack enters the Volkswagen range as a slightly more capacious alternative to the ageing Tiguan, while taking its cues from the larger Passat Alltrack as a jacked-up companion to the regular Golf wagon.

The ruggedised Golf Alltrack was initially expected to hit Australia in the first half of 2015, but an October debut is now expected.

Full details on the new Golf option will not come until closer to launch, although Volkswagen is expected to confirm a 132kW/240Nm petrol-only powertrain and a starting price in the neighbourhood of $40,000.

In the same arena is stablemate Skoda and its Octavia Scout at a very close $38,590 when equipped with the same 132TSI engine, although those seeking a diesel can opt for the more affordable $32,990 110kW/340Nm Scout 110TDI or the more powerful 135kW/380Nm 135TDI from $41,390.

Over the regular Golf, the Alltrack adds familiar SUV panel cladding, skid plates and engine-guarding plating beneath, along with unique wheel designs and unique interior items.

Volkswagen also promises a respectable level of off-roading ability, thanks to the on-demand 4Motion all-wheel-drive system and a special new ‘Offroad’ function that adds automatic hill-descent control.

This is all matched to a 20mm taller suspension package. Although the boost aids the Golf Alltrack in its efforts off-road, those seeking a more commanding view may be better served with a more conventional SUV or 4WD.
