2017 VW Golf Alltrack AWD Snowy Colorado Review [Video]

How does the new all-wheel drive 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack perform in snow?

TFL’s Nathan Adlen and Andre Smirnov had the chance to see during a recent snowy day up in the Colorado Rockies.

As soon as the guys saw that the Loveland Pass was closed due to an early season snowstorm, they realized it would be a perfect time to get up into the mountains on the open roads to do some testing.

As soon as they got to a snowy location, Nathan put the car in off-road mode to see what it could do.


The trim level they tested starts at slightly above $32,000 and comes equipped with a 1.8 liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 170 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque.

The Alltrack comes with a six-speed DSG transmission, but Volkswagen has said that a six-speed manual transmission version is coming soon.

Besides off-road, drivers can put the Alltrack in other modes including normal, sport and custom.

How did the Alltrack do in off road mode? Was there any difference when Nathan put it in normal mode? And, overall what did Nathan think of the new Alltrack? Find out by watching the complete TFL video above.
