Volkswagen is celebrating a quadruple win at this year’s Caravan Club Towcar of the Year Awards, including the overall win for the Passat Alltrack.
The 4Motion-equipped all-wheel drive Passat Alltrack was also victorious in the £32,000 to £35,0000 bracket and the All-Wheel Drive Under 1800kg group, meaning a triple win for the rugged estate model.
The Caravan Club’s judges said the Passat Alltrack is: “one of the classiest mid-range cars by a mile… it simply oozes competence” and added: “It pulls away strongly and exhibits excellent flexibility throughout the mid-range."
With a range of advanced technologies and affordable options, the Passat Alltrack has an innovative all-wheel drive system that defaults to front-wheel drive and switches to four-wheel drive when it is needed. This helps to yield an impressive 57.6 mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 130g/km.
For the upgraded off-road-tailored estate, the Passat Alltrack has a higher ride height than the standard estate model and also has increased underside protection and matte bodywork details for a more rugged look.
Chosen to be fitted with the 148hp 2.0-litre diesel engine and six-speed manual gearbox combination, the Passat Alltrack can also come with a 187hp 2.0-litre diesel/six-speed automatic gearbox configuration.
The Passat’s smaller counterpart, the Golf Alltrack also won in its category – the £29,000 to £32,000 group – to help add to Volkswagen’s growing success this year.
The Passat Alltrack is priced from £31,215, with the smaller Golf Alltrack starting from £27,250, and for more information on the award-winning duo, contact your nearest Inchcape Volkswagen dealership.
