While my GSW was in the shop, I got a chance to explore Alltrack and reaffirm I've made the right choice with GSW.
It was an SE model with a (my daughter loved it) panoramic roof. It had DGS, ambient (foot-well and door trim) interior lighting (really liked it) and other options many familiar with.
Leatherette seats were as comfortable as cloth seats in my GSW.
The ride: It was subtly different. Somewhat less supple than my GSW, mainly due to much better DWS tires I have on my GSW. Otherwise as pleasant and as compliant as a Golf should be.
Also, different coil springs/damping might be another reason of somewhat firmer ride. Firmer but less composed than GSW.
Ride height is noticeable during ingress/egress maneuvers.
DGS: I almost snapped the shift lever trying to change gears. My left foot desperately tried to find third pedal...I was glad to return it and get back to shifting my manual GSW.
I was genuinely surprised VW hasn't fixed the lurch on take off DSG exhibits with some clever software tweak.
Driving it: There was a big difference between APR tuned GSW and stock Alltrack performance.
Although I enjoyed flipping shift paddles in S mode, it was not as tactile experience as shifting manual gears.
