If you’re a skier, a mountain-biker or even a caravaning enthusiast, the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack may be ideal for your lifestyle. It comes with a four-wheel drive system, making it capable both on- and off-road, and it even has a premium badge to boot. The Alltrack is capable of towing horseboxes and even small boats over slippery roads with little problem, and that might make it an attractive choice for outdoor types. It’s based on the popular Passat estate, but now with added off-road capability it aims to attract a new breed of customer.
