How does the Golf Alltrack compare to the Forester?
First off, if you were leaning towards the Subaru brand because of their reputation with all-wheel drive, you had better think again. Not only does the Golf Alltrack also include all-wheel drive as a standard feature, but if you are looking at getting an automatic transmission, then the Golf Alltrack provides a 6-speed automatic. The Forester on the other hand only offers a continuously variable transmission, which are known to be slow to respond, especially at highway speeds.
The Golf Alltrack is a premium vehicle, and as such it offers a lot of luxury even with its base model. In fact, you get features like a Composition Media Touchscreen, Multi-function steering wheel, VW Car-Net App-Connect, rearview camera system, and of course, heated leatherette seats all standard. This is leagues beyond what the Forester offers standard with its cloth seats and lack of heat.
Now we come to sound and style. To start things off on the exterior, the base model Forester comes standard with bland steel wheels which sport some gaudy wheel covers that will probably not stand up to the test of time. The Golf Alltrack on the other hand, has beautiful 17” alloy wheels that come standard and will always look glorious. On the inside, the Forester expects you to get by with a measly 4 speakers, whereas the Golf Alltrack gives you the booming quality of a 9-speaker sound system.
If you think that the Golf Alltrack is the one for you, then you should come down to Carter Volkswagen. You can view our inventory online, or you can come to see us in Seattle to get a test drive and see for yourself.
