Which wagon is better: Golf Alltrack or Crosstrek?

Horsepower isn’t everything, but if it was, this contest would already be over as the Golf Alltrack offers 170 horsepower standard. Torque is often the more important specification though, and in that regard, the Golf Alltrack still impresses with 184 pound-feet of torque. The Crosstrek only offers 145 pound-feet of torque.

When you buy a wagon of any sort, you are going to want cargo room. After all, that’s half the point. Here, the Golf Alltrack delivers again but its 66.5 cubic-feet of cargo room is only telling part of the story. With all the seats up and seating for five, the Golf Alltrack still provides 30.4 cubic-feet of cargo room which is still more than the Crosstrek provides with all seats up at 20.8 cubic-feet of cargo room.

When it comes to warranties, VW wins out with their new People First Warranty. It provides 6 years or 72,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, and that includes your powertrain coverage too. This means that the VW not only beats the Subaru with its bumper-to-bumper warranty, but its powertrain warranty too as the Crosstrek only offer 5 years or 60,000 miles of powertrain protection.

Both of these models have all-wheel drive as a standard feature, which is something that many buyers would come to expect from these two models. However, with more power under the hood, more cargo room, and a better warranty to back it all up, the choice between AWD wagons should be easy. Get the VW Golf Alltrack.
