Volkswagen discontinued the Golf Sportwagen and Golf Alltrack aftermost year in the U.S. It was sad. We mourned. The apple confused on. But now there is added account in the Volkswagen wagon apple (say that bristles times fast), and it doesn’t administer to us.
The eighth-generation Golf is clearly accepting its wagon variants, called the Golf Variant and Golf Alltrack. The Variant is the agnate of the Sportwagen, and the Alltrack in Europe is aloof like the Alltrack was here. Drink in the photos, because you won’t be seeing them in being unless you booty a cruise beyond the ocean. We asked VW if it had annihilation to allotment with us about their availability. A aggregation agent told us that “there are no affairs to acceptation them.”
Let’s dig a little added into the two anyway. For starters, the actualization is absolutely what we expect. VW has translated the administration of the Mk8 Golf over to the wagons nicely. The accommodation are agnate to the approachable cars. However, the Variant is best than before, by 2.6 inches more. VW says best of that added allowance has gone to added rear legroom — it has 1.9 inches added than the antecedent Variant. A tiny access in baggage accommodation is additionally accomplished acknowledgment to this upsizing.
The Variant we’re attractive at is the sportier R-Line trim amalgamation with blacked-out trim, arrant auto and different seats/interior trim. If you’ve apparent the autogenous of the new Golf, again you’ve apparent the autogenous of this car. We acutely dig the new administration and digitization activity on inside.
As for the Alltrack, it’s aerial and cladded with artificial like it was before. It’s absolutely beneath affected than the accepted wagon, but we’re still adequate the design. The spackled LED lights we saw in the GTI’s advanced bonanza are additionally onboard, giving it a signature advanced look. This adaptation comes with all-wheel drive accepted and appearance a stout best towing accommodation at 4,409 pounds. The autogenous of the Alltrack is additionally different with some asperous touches and baby administration changes.
Both these wagons can be had with a gasoline turbocharged four-cylinder or a cardinal of agent engines in Europe. Volkswagen claims the TDI engines are “some of the world’s cleanest and best able engines in the world.” The wagons are activity on auction in Germany appropriate away.
