According to the EPA data files, the AWD (4motion) GSW burns:
+14.5% more fuel in city
+15.3% more fuel on highway
Compared to the FWD GSW. (calculated fron "City Unrd Adj FE - Conventional Fuel" and "Hwy Unrd Adj FE - Conventional Fuel" columns)

For 2017 Mazda CX-5, AWD vs FWD:
+6.4% on highway (no unrounded MPG available for city)

For 2017 Mazda CX-9:
+7.9% on city / highway

Is VW's 4motion AWD system really that inefficient?

But it does look like VW is using the Alltrack as the emission certificate for the GSW 4motion.
