Strange that it does not show dimentions. 160 ltrs to 680 ltrs does not help much unless you can find out the cubic capacity of the golf then that will give you a better idea as to how much smaller it is.
I went from a reasonably roomy Corsa boot (I used to fill it with shopping each week) to a Dooper Convertible and you will be surprised how much crap you can get into it, all my shopping certainly goes in there but it's just a bit of a drag having to life it in through the boot lid rather than through an opening hatch.
Unless you are carryying golf clubs or a pushchair you will get used to it.
Thanks for the dimensions from the US, I should be able to work that out from US imperial to MM.
Couldn't have put it better my self!
I have a push chair, 790 x 240 x 610 and want to know if A. it will fit and B. just how little boot will be left over. My wife is a teacher and does carry a lot of crap around she assures me are actually books and marking.
With the pram a semi permanent fixture will there be any boot left over?
I've just been reading some old treads on mpg, if we can get mid 50's out of it which is looking likely with some miles on the engine, that will be 6-7 more than we get out of the Golf so that will be welcome. My wife does have an economic right foot, I do not however
I have a psa engined Yaris D4D for work and 100 miles a day around town that returns 63-64 all through out the year. There's progress for you!
Just chopped a MkV Golf 1.9 TDI in for a 2009 Clubman Cooper D
Getting on average 15 to 20 MPG better across the range.
That's just opinion using the average MPG displays on both.
What that doesn't say is how much more enjoyable the drive is! Purely subjective I know. The downside of that is I drive it more and spend more on diesel
£20 a year VEL is a bit better than my old Golf too.
If you want I can run my tape measure over the boot in Millimetres?
