Volkswagen appears to be spreading the Alltrack love. Autocar reports that Volkswagen is mulling over whether to do a a lifted version of its next Golf and Jetta wagon. The Golf would be for Europe while the Jetta would be for North America.

The reason is due to the next generation Tiguan, due out in 2014, will be growing in size and offer a third row of seats. Volkswagen still wants a player in the small crossover market.

The Alltrack will include a raised ride height, uniquely styled bumpers and light graphics, additional wheel arch cladding, and unique interior trims. The Golf and Jetta Alltrack will be available with either FWD or Volkswagen's 4Motion AWD system.

The Golf and Jetta Alltrack will come out in 2015.

This was one of the most obvious, needs to be produced Concepts, yet at the same time the most ignored at the show.

VW has done off-road conversions of their vehicles since the very beginning. I mean Subaru has practically built their brand on jacked-up wagons, when it was Volkswagen that has the real history in doing so. VW is the rightful owner of the formula.

I think a Jetta Alltrak would be awesome, but I also lament the fact that seemingly every generation of vehicle grows and changes its formula. A 3-seat Tiguan? Not necessary.

We all know how the likes of Volvo ditched wagons and their crossovers are what sells. Look at BMW and Audi?

VW would be better off making the Tuaoreg and Tiguan more affordable and AMURCHAN, just like they did with the Jetta and Passat here.......

Tiguan would rule the market here with a trunk stretch, better road dynamics, and a far better price.

Tuorged should concentrate on being less of a technological tour deforce, and more recognize how its about the perfect Ford Edge competitor size wise. If it lost 1000 pounds and gained a low price and decent mpg it would rule the roost.

I think even Subaru will ditch the outback over time and morph into more of the crossover.....

Current Sportwagen sells well for being a golden oldie.
