2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Coming from humble beginnings in the VW model line, the Golf family of affectionately named “hot hatches” has grown to include some of the most trusted and versatile vehicles on the market. Today, we’ve got two of the best in the class on display, for different reasons. On one side lies the Golf Alltrack, new for the 2017 model year and right at home off the beaten path, and on the other lies the Golf GTI, a hatchback more than ready to unleash the speed demon in all of us.

Our team at New Century Volkswagen wants to help you make an informed decision about which Volkswagen model is right for you, so we decided to put the Golf Alltrack and GTI models up against each other for a friendly little rivalry. Let’s jump in and see what these two can do!

Truly, from body design to performance, versatility to functionality and everything in between, the Golf family of hatchbacks is more than capable of providing everything you need to make your daily drive memorable. The Alltrack is built for consumers who love the feeling of going off road, featuring a longer body length, built-in mudflaps, and standard 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive that gives you total control over all surfaces, whether or not they’re paved. The Golf GTI, on the other hand, is perfect for those who want to grip the gear shift, press the gas and go fast. The GTI’s 2.0-liter TSI® engine is perfect for those desires, and autobahn-tuned sport suspension helps to bring the upper echelon of performance and handling down to consumer level.

The one difference between the Alltrack and GTI comes in the features that they offer standard. For its aforementioned base price the Alltrack provides you with eight standard airbags, a slew of safety features, and seamless connectivity to your world wherever the Alltrack is in it. All this is available in the GTI as well, but as options that will bump the price up a little more. However, if you’re looking for a fun and practical driving experience or an unforgettable ride, you’ll find what you need with the Golf family.
