Volkswagen SportWagen, Alltrack Apparently Out Next Year

The Golf Sportwagen wagon isn’t in Volkswagen’s plans for next year.

Quebec publication Le Guide de l’Auto is reporting that the Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen won’t return after the 2019 model-year. A release obtained by the site and intended for Volkswagen dealerships apparently confirmed that the Sportwagen is out. The more rugged Alltrack version is also on the way out.

That said, consumers will still be able to purchase a Golf Sportwagen or an Alltrack next year. Volkswagen plans on ramping up production in the 4th quarter of this year to ensure adequate supply through 2020. What will happen after, is anyone’s guess.

2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Review: Alternative Crossover

Volkswagen will likely turn its focus on a smaller entry-level SUV to sit below the Tiguan. The Volkswagen T-Roc is a very real possibility. We also know that VW intends to build a coupe-like version of the Atlas called the Atlas Cross Sport.

Rumors have been swirling about the Volkswagen Golf line as a whole in recent weeks with reports suggesting the car’s future was uncertain. The GTI and Golf R versions are likely safe as they outsell the base Golf by a fairly significant margin in the U.S.

Just as wagons were looking to make a comeback, it appears Volkswagen won’t be staying the segment. Nothing is confirmed yet, but it’s safe to say that if you have your eyes on a Sportwagen or Alltrack, you probably want to make a move soon.
