Most vehicles couldn’t make it up this road, and most people wouldn’t even think of it, let alone call it one. But there we were, edging ever higher on an unmarked logging road on the side of a mountain in rural Germany, testing the off-road capabilities of the 2016 VW Golf Alltrack. Live up to its name it has, and come to Canada it will in fall 2016 as a 2017 model year. An homage to the Golf Country of the early ’90s, this modern spiritual successor boasts a 170-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder, all-wheel-drive, 20 millimetres of extra ground clearance and hill descent control. If there ever were a go-anywhere Golf, this is it.
