Volkswagen release new Passat Alltrack Wolfsburg
VW’s Wolfsburg editions have been very popular and profitable for Volkswagen dealers. The first one, Golf Wolfsburg, was on my shopping list when I left Northstar Volkswagen in late 2015. Unfortunately, the new owner wasn’t prepared to sell me one at cost and I missed out. Historically Wolfsburg’s have featured lots of extra equipment and tech and this Passat Alltrack Wolfsburg version is no exception.
In some cases, I’m not yet privy to an actual road test on many brands and models. I currently review Suzuki, Mazda, Nissan, Kia, Land Rover, Great Wall, Haval, and Mitsubishi. Other manufacturers are yet to come to their senses as I’m reviewing cars as a potential customer would.
In any case, there’s a myriad of press releases submitted by manufacturers every week, and to help keep you up to date with what’s going on in the Car Business, I’ve introduced a new section for The Car Guy website. It’s titled ”In Their Own Words”. I sincerely hope that this article gives you some extended information as a prospective new car buyer on cars that I haven’t had an opportunity to drive and review. Just be careful to understand that these releases are the manufacturers spin and not my opinion. If you’re interested in more information about a particular brand or model of new vehicle, please contact me directly, whichever state you’re living in on 0418 748 498. I’ll be sure to assist you in any way I can.

One of Volkswagen’s most popular ‘sporting utility vehicles’ returns this week in special Wolfsburg Edition form.
Popular demand sees a new run of 250 Passat Alltrack Wolfsburg Editions released. The hugely capacious and practical off road wagon comes in new colours and with MY18 updates, but retains its $54,990 RRP.

The Wolfsburg Edition continues to feature this special model equipment over and above the Passat Alltrack 140TDI:

The Wolfsburg Edition shares the Passat Alltrack’s 2.0-litre turbo, good for 140kW/400Nm, driven through the familiar six-speed wet clutch DSG and 4Motion all-wheel-drive. With a luggage capacity of 1780 litres backseats folded and 650 litres with the rear pews in place, the Alltrack outpoints most SUVs at its price point.
