Volkswagen bringing “concept” AWD Passat Alltrak to New York Auto Show
When it comes to an AWD station wagon, your choices in the U.S. are less than desirable. Consumers are faced with two options, Audi Allroad and various Subaru models. One is overpriced and the others can be found on many driveways. However, Volkswagen is planning to bring the Passat Alltrak to the States for the New York Auto Show, and they hope to be the third major option.
Now before you run down to the dealership and put in your order, Volkswagen is debuting the Alltrak as a “concept,” even thougt the same vehicle was featured as a production model at the Tokyo Motor Show. We’re guess that this is Volkswagen’s test to see how American buyers will react to the option. The Passat Alltrak is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel motor, pumping out 138hp and 168hp. The lower of the two will be available in a manual transmission.
Though the price hasn’t been announced for the American variant of the Passat, we’re guessing it’ll be priced somewhere in the high 20s or low 30s.
