2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2017 Toyota RAV4

Today's SUVs are remarkable vehicles. From towing power to cargo space to passenger accommodations, the modern SUV is a vehicle that fits all needs—but what about your needs as a driver? There's no use in driving a car that fits someone else's needs if it doesn't work just as well with your own. This is part of the reason for the variety in the SUV class as a whole as well as part of the reason that it can be difficult to determine what SUV is the best fit for you.

Let's take a look at the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack and the 2017 Toyota RAV4. Both the Toyota and Volkswagen brands are known for reliability, superior design, and vehicles that last for many years, so both vehicles will be a good investment in the end. The question that lies in comparing these two cars isn't about which is better than the other, but what car works for what drivers.

In good keeping with their consistency in longevity and reliability in car-making, both Volkswagen and Toyota have crafted well-thought out vehicles that share a lot in common. Both the 2017 Golf Alltrack and the 2017 RAV4 have similar engine capabilities, MSRP listings, passenger capacity, and the same combined MPG. However, the slight differences that remain between the cars show that they fit different needs.

The difference in drivetrain makes a divide between the Alltrack and the RAV4. The Alltrack's all-wheel drive works in tandem with its status as a VW wagon: it's both a little tougher and a little more accommodating than the RAV4. If you're looking for a stable vehicle that you can really pack full for a road trip or a little off-road adventure, the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack is an excllent choice. The RAV4, while capable, will be a little more limited in capacity and contact with the road.
