Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the RAM ProMaster City than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. The RAM ProMaster City will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the RAM ProMaster City as you will with the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the RAM ProMaster City will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the RAM ProMaster City is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.

Dimensions
The RAM ProMaster City is a little wider than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the RAM ProMaster City, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the RAM ProMaster City doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the RAM ProMaster City and the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the RAM ProMaster City will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.
