Volkswagen's Passat Estatewith ?Car DVD Player is already a proven performer; practical in all sorts of ways that only an estate is.

It can handle big (long) DTH Hammer M40 loads with ease and also pack in plenty of people. Could it be even better though? VW think so; hence the Passat Alltrack – a four-wheel drive version of the Passat Estate, modified to provide both on-road and off-road capabilities.


There's a raised ride height, for example, to cope with rough surfaces and standard exterior features include the new and particularly DTH Drilling 150 DHD340 lightweight engine underbody protection.

There's also redesigned bumpers (at the front with custom fog lights, at the rear with integrated trapezoidal trims for the exhaust system), door mirror housings in "matt chrome" finish, Alltrack badges, anodised silver roof rails and custom 17-inch alloy wheels.

Rugged wheel arch and side sill mouldings complete the look. Move inside and the interior has also been modified – comfort seats in fabric/Alcantara, elegant trims and stainless steel sill tread plates to floor mats.

Pedals come in brushed stainless steel. In addition, the infotainment menu has been customised, with off-road information.

The car is equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive – normally, only the front wheels are driven, saving fuel. But as DTH Hammer QL50 soon as there is a risk of losing traction, the rear axle is smoothly engaged in a fraction of a second.


All models come with driving mode selection as standard. In addition to the familiar "Eco", "Comfort", "Normal", "Sport" and "Individual" driving modes, the additional "Off-road" mode is an exclusive feature of the Alltrack. Activating this programme with a push of a button adapts all relevant driving and assistance systems, the suspension and the engine and gearbox control to off-road use. If installing a VW navigation?in your car, that would be great!
