Volkswagen has introduced the 2017 Golf SportWagen Alltrack at the New York Auto Show.

The model first debuted at last year’s Paris Motor Show and it's now getting ready for a US arrival as Volkswagen has announced the Golf SportWagen Alltrack will be available starting next year as a 2017MY. Just like its European sibling, the rugged Golf wagon has a 20mm increased ride height, plastic body cladding as well as aluminum protection plates.

Volkswagen of America hasn't disclosed which engines will be offered for the model but they did say it will come with a standard 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with latest Haldex coupling. We remind you the Euro-spec model is powered by a 1.8 TSI with 180 HP & 280 Nm and three diesels: 1.6 TDI with 110 HP & 250 Nm, 2.0 TDI with 150 HP & 340 Nm and 2.0 TDI with 184 HP & 380 Nm.
