Ahead is the usual top-notch Volkswagan dashboard, with large easy to read dials.The center console contains Dual Zone automatic climate control and also houses the RNS510 media system which comes standard with Sat-Nav and a 30gb hard drive. The luggage capacity of the Alltrack’s bootspace is 588 litres with rear seats in place. This is increased to a massive 1,716 litres when the seats are folded flat– in this case, the Passat Alltrack is loaded up to the roofliner and to the backrests of the front seats. A cargo net barrier may be mounted behind the first seating row and/or behind the second seating row to prevent luggage from entering the passenger space when braking.
Volkswagen Passat Alltrack has been expertly styled with noticeable but subtle differences from the standard Passat wagon. There are 17 inch alloy wheels as standard, which can be updated to 18” inch with the sports packageThe rugged exterior design is noticeable from which ever angle you look at the car. Up-front a chrome skid plate leads in to front fog lights new and honeycomb grille, Bi-Xenon HID headlights complete the look. At the rear there is a smiliar chrome skid plate and dual exhaust tailpipes.
When the Off-Road button on the centre console is activated the following Alltrack sees changes to anti-lock braking system (ABS) , electronic differential locks (EDS) react quicker to prevent wheel spin at individual wheels. The engine’s torque control (ASR) is modified in parallel. Hill descent assist is activated (when the off-road function is selected) at a descent angle greater than 10 degrees; the accelerator pedal becomes softer allowing for better throttle control in off-road situations.If you are after a car that can get you to that camp spot that is a little further from the sealed road and don’t want a SUV then the Passat Alltrack is for you. The luggage carrying capacity would allow a family road trip to be taken with ease. Plenty of space for scooters, luggage, toys and all the other items required by a family. For the adventure couple the option of extra ride height and all wheel drive offers a vehicle that should suit there needs.
