Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, the Chevrolet Bolt EV may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Bolt EV and the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack have similar Destination Charges.
