The Alltrack is one of those cars that slips under the radar. Typical Volkswagen styling means that it looks like a ‘normal’ Passat estate and hasn’t been overcooked by the design department.
What’s the betting that any other manufacturer building a four-wheel drive estate car would have opted for plastic side mouldings and a rash of 4×4 stickers to emphasis the off-road ability?
As such, the Alltrack blends in with the rest of the Passat family when it really does have a good deal more to shout about. It isn’t cheap at £32,000 but it drives beautifully, especially on corners where most SUVs wallow and moan.
