2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2018 Subaru Outback
Crossover SUVs are everywhere. They seem to be a catch-all perfect choice for families, executives, and the outdoors types. Is there no end to their consumption of every single driver demographic? Some are standing up. The bold, rugged station-wagon class isn’t full of options, but those that is has are marked by a commitment to assisting great adventures without adding unnecessary vehicle height, or fuel thirst.
Among these renegades, two vehicles have risen to the top of the available options: The first, the Subaru Outback. Subaru’s station wagon version of their robust legacy sedan features an improved ground clearance, and performance features designed for off-road work. The second, the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is here to provide a choice for those drivers who want the benefits of rugged performance and off-road handling with options. Debuting for the 2017 model year, the Golf Alltrack makes minor improvements to give drivers a first-class off-road experience. Here’s how the two vehicles measure up:
