Those interested in going off road, but who don’t want an SUV might want to check out the new Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. Based on the Golf SpotWagen, the car seems to be aimed directly at the Subaru Outback, and looks similar in style and execution.

Power comes from 1.8L TSI turbo four with 170 hp and 199 lb-ft. of torque. To start, Alltrack buyers will only get a 6-speed DSG dual-clutch, but a 6-speed manual version will come later. All versions have 4motion all-wheel drive, hill descent control, an Alltrack exclusive off-road mode, and increased ground clearance of 6.9 inches. The car also has a roof rack, and the utility and storage space of a compact SUV in a car with better road manners.
