2022 VW Passat Wagon SUV AWD

2022 VW Passat Wagon SUV AWD

If we look at what the latest VW Passat SUV offers, it’s a very complete package that puts the classy wagon in a league of its own.  The 2022 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack 162TSI isn’t just a normal station wagon because the car is a wagon on steroids.  The car has a higher-than-standard ride height, a beefier suspension, AWD traction, luxurious and high-tech interiors, five-star safety, and plenty of creamy performance.

Two models of the 2022 Volkswagen Passat SUV Alltrack are available: the VW Passat SUV Alltrack 162TSI and the VW Passat SUV Alltrack 162TSI Premium.  The Premium version is packed full of all the goodies for a complete luxury experience.  With the Premium badge comes sumptuous leather seats that remain comfortable for long roadies.  A special interior needs special effects, and that’s what the Premium Passat SUV has; it comes with ambient interior lighting and a choice of colouring effects.  Premium also means the best in audio, so the luxury trim Passat Alltrack SUV Wagon comes with an exquisite 10-speaker sound system.  Voice control is standard on the Premium model.

Cabin design and comfort is first rate.  The front seats are very comfortable, easily manipulated for forward/back and up/down movement.  Lateral support is excellent, and both versions have heated seats.  The Passat Wagon’s dash design is pleasant and easy on the eye, with a crystal clear touchscreen taking centre stage.  Drivers of the Premium model enjoy a very informative and clear digital driver’s display.

The VW 2.0-litre Turbo motor is a sweet Premium ULP unit that delivers superb performance.  Linked to a 7-speed sports automatic gearbox and boasting AWD capability, the Passat Alltrack keeps the road under its control in all-weathers.  Delivering 162 kW of power and 350 Nm of torque, the car rides comfortably along with plenty of power in reserve for whisking passed slower moving traffic.  Out on the highway, the new VW Passat SUV wagon lopes along quietly and effortlessly and this is the place where you’ll find the lowest consumption figures.  Anywhere between 7 and 10 litres/100km is what you should expect to attain from the VW engine, with a Volkswagen claimed fuel efficiency average of 8.1 litres/100km.

Having a solid platform and underpinnings, the Alltrack Passat can happily tackle B-roads, gravel roads out to the farm, and even some light off-road work.  But along with the appeal of this wider terrain and adventure, the new Volkswagen Passat SUV Wagon can tow a 750 kg unbraked trailer without a sweat.  Its maximum tow capacity for a braked trailer is an impressive 2200 kg, making it a hugely versatile wagon.  Choose the Premium version of the Passat Alltrack Wagon, and you also get an alarm motion sensor that has tow away protection.  Hill descent control and a hill-holding function for easy starts on steep slopes are both handy features.  Both models get a rear-view camera, and the Premium version gets 360 degree camera coverage.

Coming with a 5-year/unlimited km warranty, life is pretty sweet with a new Volkswagen Passat AWD Alltrack SUV Wagon.  There’s 5-star safety, five roomy adult-sized seats, and five-door practicality.  The boot in the new Passat Alltrack offers its owners 650 litres with the rear seats in place and 1780 litres with the rear seats folded down flat, and Premium versions get a powered tailgate.  Both versions get fantastic GPS navigation mapping, so you won’t get yourself lost or have those arguments over which direction to take – or maybe not!  And both versions also boast multi-zone climate control and keyless entry.

The new Passat Alltrack is a special looking Wagon.  Stylish alloys fill out the wheel arches (18-inch on the 162TSI, 19-inch on the 162TSI Premium) really well and the German Wagon has an aura of elegance and a purposeful stance on the road.  You can have these good looks in Deep Black, Aquamarine Blue, Manganese Grey, Moonstone Grey, Pyrite Silver, or Glacier White.

So, what is out there that competes with the 2022 VW Alltrack Passat Wagon?  Mazda’s CX-30, Subaru’s Forester and Outback, Honda’s CR-V, Renault’s Koleos, and Volvo’s V60 Cross Country are all decent AWD rivals that can mix a bit of mud with the tarmac from time to time.  If you are in the VW Passat Alltrack’s price range (≈$56–68k), then this is a fabulous vehicle to buy.
