2017 Golf GTI vs 2017 Golf Alltrack Horsepower

When it comes to horsepower, the GTI certainly races ahead of the Alltrack. The all-new Golf Alltrack offers the 4MOTION all-wheel drive that adds confidence and capability in tough driving conditions, but those who are looking for the quickest take-off will appreciate the boosted torque of the GTI model. The all-wheel drive of the Alltrack takes a bit off the highway fuel economy rating, but the Alltrack's longer body and higher ground clearance means you can handle tougher terrain and fit more cargo inside.  

The sleek and speedy Golf GTI offers a faster acceleration rate and a lower starting MSRP than the Alltrack. However, inside of both the GTI and the Alltrack, you'll find an eight-speaker audio system, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and Bluetooth compatibility. The standard GTI has premium cloth-covered seating and heated front seats, and the Alltrack has standard V-Tex Leatherette seating trim and heated front seats. Both vehicles have the classic no-nonsense Volkswagen style and a great-looking exterior, so it's up to you to decide between the versatility of the Alltrack or the speed and budget-friendly features of the GTI.
