2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2017 Subaru Outback<

The all-wheel-drive wagon vehicle class had been largely limited to the Subaru Outback until the release of the Golf Alltrack in September 2016. The 2017 Golf Alltrack arrived turbocharged, well-equipped, and ready to challenge the Subaru Outback nose-to-nose. We’ve put together a comparison of the 2017 Golf Alltrack S vs the 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5i for the ultimate battle.

The two wagons are comparably priced, with the Golf Alltrack sporting a slightly higher price tag. However, a higher price usually means more standard features—and the Alltrack offers just that. The Alltrack offers a generous amount of standard features compared to the Outback, including heated seats, leatherette seating surfaces, fog lights, power reclining front seats, and more. Drivers looking for more bang for their buck should opt for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.
