Volkswagen announced their AllTrack concept to a warm reception back in early 2012, but to me they seem a bit slow in getting it to the dealerships. Finally though, we are getting closer, since it looks like the bolstered Golf Sportwagen will be in the U.S. as a 2016 model. For Subaru Outback and Crosstrek advocates, there will be something else to look at. For others one of the most attractive additions will be the inclusion of a TDI diesel powertrain. According to Road and Track, the transmission options haven’t been announced, but we are one step closer to a Volkswagen all-wheel drive TDI diesel crossover.
Both should be offered with all the normal Golf engine offerings, including the TDI, and both will also be offered with 4Motion. However, it’s unclear what transmissions will be offered with all of the potential engine and driveline combinations. The announcement, made by Volkswagen of America CEO Michael Horn, came a little ahead of the company’s planned announcements on the car, so additional details are sparse.
