2018 VW Golf Alltrack Off-Road Technology
4MOTION all-wheel drive, available for both automatic and manual transmission models, transfers torque between the rear and front wheels as needed. During regular travel, 4MOTION will send power to the front wheels, but will shift that power to the rear axle when necessary. 4MOTION was engineered to provide an optimized and stable driving experience, no matter the terrain or road condition.
Hill Descent Control is another exciting off-road feature included with the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. When the vehicle is set to Off-Road Mode, Hill Descent Control automatically activates. When travelling down a steep slope, this system assists the driver in brake application to keep the vehicle moving at a controlled, stable speed.
