The 2 liter TDI engine is the only way if you want the Alltrack all wheel drive and is probably an inhibitory factor for the time when we head into this version. In terms of performance there is satisfaction without impressing and the main reason is due to the weight which approaches 1,700 pounds. However, with 140 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque, which are the strong point, the performance is not a disadvantage for the Alltrack with the first 100 km/hr from a standstill to come in just 10.3” and a top speed that approaches 198 km/hr.

The sound insulation and qualitative scrolling eliminate sounds inside the Alltrack and the travel character is fortunately not affected, while the strength of the 2 liter TDI is limited in demand for fuels, as the weight and character of the car. The fuel consumption is around 8 lt/100 km and with a variety of use and rate, the Alltrack ensures the autonomy approaching 900 kilometers and it is a privilege for a good travel character. On the road it remains a Passat with a small compromise mainly in the sense that is mainly due to extra weight and less in small lifting of the suspension.

Although the Alltrack is not about hard situations with the program Off-Road, which operates at speeds up to 30 km/hr, it electronically simulates operation differential lock (EDS) and activates the system Hill Descent Assist. Finally, what needs to be noted, is that this is not a car that replaces the SUV, but it has all the necessary skills to not ruin your trip, but of course be aware of what you are driving.
