For those taking the Alltrack beyond the pavement, the off-road driving mode creates a stable and comfortable ride. As an added value, the external proximity sensors can help alert the driver from hitting potential rocks, trees, or debris while on their offroad adventures.
Volkswagen understands that stopping on dirt, snow, and gravel can be a lot a lot trickier than on clean pavement. That’s why the Golf Alltrack has several active braking features including Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), Anti-lock Braking (ABS) with Hydraulic and Engine Brake Assist! When faced with a downhill battle, the Alltrack has a Hill-Descent Control feature that automatically brakes the vehicle when needed.
While offering an impressive amount of support for off-road and abnormal driving conditions, the 2017 Alltrack is just as robust in utility.
