Montreal Autoshow Features All-Wheel-Drive Wagon

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Jan. 14, 2016) -

Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

After last year's launch of the award-winning Golf Sportwagon at the annual winter event, Volkswagen Canada again chose the Montréal Autoshow to feature the latest version of this versatile wagon. This time, the focus is just as much on the drivetrain as the look of the vehicle.

The All-Track Sportwagon will mark the first appearance of Volkswagen's 4MOTION all-wheel-drive on the popular wagon. This system utilizes a haldex-coupling to move power front to rear as required, and guarantees excellent traction even in the worst of conditions.

Arriving this summer as a 2017 model, the All-Track will be powered by a 170 horsepower turbocharged and direct injected engine. Initial orders will feature an automatic transmission, and a six-speed manual gearbox will join the lineup before the end of the year.

A higher suspension, unique bumpers and front grille and 18" "Canyon" alloy wheels will make a striking exterior impression.

Inside, driver and passengers alike will be treated to a similarly unique experience, with All-Track specific trim and badging, along with driver profile selection.

The All-Track will be remarkably well equipped, featuring:

  • "App-Connect" smartphone integration with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Mirror Link
  • Ambient interior LED lighting
  • Climatronic dual-zone electronic climate control
  • A 6.3" touchscreen infotainment system with CD, USB and SiriusXM satellite radio
  • Panoramic glass sunroof
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Chrome roof rails
  • Keyless access with push button start
  • Leather sports seats

Also available will be a technology package featuring adaptive cruise control, navigation, autonomous emergency braking, lane assist and park distance control. Bi-Xenon headlights and a Fender premium audio system are also available.

With a low center of gravity, the All-Track Sportwagon will provide a unique alternative to more cumbersome sport utility vehicles. Its combination of interior volume, driving characteristics and sporty good looks will surely make it a favourite on Canadian roads.

The All-Track will arrive this summer at Dealerships and pricing will be announced closer to that date.

For fans of the regular Golf Sportwagon, the option of 4MOTION all-wheel-drive will also be available on 2017 model year cars in non-All-Track trim.
