Which is Better: The VW Golf Alltrack or the Subaru Outback?

Drivers who need versatility and efficient practicality are right to shop in the sporty wagon department. The Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is a top contender in this segment, and it's often compared with the Subaru Outback.

Naturally, we prefer the Golf Alltrack.

More Get-Up-And-Go

At 170 horsepower, the Alltrack just about matches the Outback's 175 horsepower. Where the Golf Alltrack really shines, though, is in its turbo-powered torque. The Outback has 174 pound-feet of torque, and the Alltrack has 199 pound-feet. The horsepower difference is negligible because the Alltrack gives you much better acceleration from low revs, where you'll really want it.

Whether you're running errands in Atlanta or taking the long way to Alpharetta, you can enjoy the drive more in a Golf Alltrack.  

You'll find that the Golf Alltrack's handling makes for a much more engaging drive. Volkswagen will give you fun performance- the Golf Alltrack paddle shifters are smooth and crisp. The Outback gearbox isn't particularly inspiring.

Nicer Standard Equipment List

The not-so-basic base Golf Alltrack comes with a host of fantastic standard features that aren't on the base Outback.  

  • Power-reclining, heated front seats
  • Leatherette upholstery
  • Foglights
  • Rear-seat pass-through

More Natural Light Available

We love the available panoramic sunroof on the Golf Alltrack. The Subaru Outback has an available sunroof, but it's not very impressive. Let the sun in. Let your passengers stargaze. Drive the Alltrack with the panoramic sunroof!
