3) Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
The Golf Alltrack has been designed to effortlessly transition from city driving to off-road mode. With a specialized engine and ABS configuration the vehicle can handle a variety of surfaces, comfortably drive down steep gradients, making the most of traction control.
This versatile AWD wagon is also well-connected. VW’s Car-Net app can link maps, messaging, music, and other features with the car’s touchscreen. Apple and Android compatibility further enables using select apps directly from the smartphone. Another optional extra is the Fender premium audio system with 400 watts of power.
The car’s available off-road monitor is a customizable display that can show altitude, steering wheel angle, compass and other useful info. The car’s rugged design and exterior cladding, as well as its high road clearance add to its off-road character.
A large, power-tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof adds to the outdoor feel. Roof rails also enhance the look and utility of the Alltrack. US retail prices start at $26,950.
