The U.S. market remains SUV obsessed, but for those in search of something a little different, the wagon is a solid option. Today, Volkswagen has a few sleek wagon options, which include the Golf Sportwagen and the Golf Alltrack. Both models boast an impressive amount of cargo space, spacious interiors and a long list of premium features.
That said, the two models share similarities, but overall are distinctly different. Volkswagen’s Golf Alltrack is slightly longer and taller and unlike the Golf Sportwagen, is standard with all-wheel drive. The 2019 Golf Sportwagen S, on the other hand, is the only trim available with the 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

Overall, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen features a sedan-like driving experience, ample cargo space and all the newest features you need for any adventure. It’s also available with two engine options and comes equipped with a long list of equipment, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, VW’s Car-Net App-Connect, roof rails, a six-speaker sound system and much more.
That said, another key difference between the two wagons is the Alltrack’s unique features and equipment. It has protective body panels, more ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive, which makes it perfect for off-road exploring.
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is also available in three trims, including the S, SE and SEL. It shares some features with the Sportwagen, but also receives a long list of available special technologies of its own, including ambient cabin lighting, a Fender premium audio system and much more.
