– How big is the VW Golf boot ? 1270 litres (rear seats down) and 380 litres (rear seats up).
VW Golf SV to be discontinued after this generation.
Understanding Volkswagen Golf car names The Golf trims come with different levels of equipment. S is the entry-level, and cheapest, car, followed by SE Navigation, GT, R-Line, and then the performance and hybrid models (GTI, GTD, GTE, R).
The Golf SV is longer, wider and much taller than a Golf , meaning generous space for four adults. The middle rear seat is narrower than the others and also suffers from limited legroom because of the transmission tunnel.
What’s the used Volkswagen Golf Plus hatchback like? The Golf Plus is exactly that: a Golf with a bit more boot space, passenger room and versatility. Front three-quarter visibility is still a problem, though, due to those thick A-pillars, and the Plus’s taller body means you sit slightly higher than in the Golf .
The Astra’s 370-litre boot space beats the Peugeot 308 and Volkswagen Golf allowing us to get the clubs in the boot, but we were just centimetres off closing it as you can see. If you put the smaller side of the rear seats down the clubs slide in easily, as they do in the majority of small cars.
Seat folding and flexibility The Golf’s rear seats don’t do anything clever, such as sliding or reclining. As with most hatchbacks, you can fold down the 60/40 split seatbacks (the A Class gets a more flexible 40/20/40 split) by pulling levers next to the outer rear head restraints.
The VW Golf MK8 is an excellent family car that’s easy to drive, spacious and well equipped. Its looks won’t appeal to everyone, though, and some features are tricky to use.
VW Golf Mk6: what to look out for Volkswagen seems to have rectified a lot of the issues that befell the Mk5 , so the Mk6 is largely more reliable to own – borne out by its impressive performance in the 2011 Driver Power survey, where it finished in a highly respectable 10th place overall.
Recommended Volkswagen GTI model years The early 2006.5 and 2007 cars seem to be less reliable than the later ones, r/GolfGTI sub-Reddit users claim, which is why we recommend a 2008 or 2009 example. 2010 brought the Mk6 Volkswagen GTI , which was essentially a facelifted Mk5, Car and Driver reports.
