Editor’s note: This Car Seat Check was written in April 2018 about the 2018 Volkswagen Golf. Little of substance has changed with this year’s model. See what’s new for 2019 or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.
The verdict: It’s tough to get excited about a compact hatchback, but Volkswagen’s Golf impresses. It’s a vehicle that delivers the best of both worlds. Its peppy engine and engaging road manners make it fun to drive on even the most boring errand runs, while its hatchback body style and accessible Latch anchors make it roomy enough for groceries and flexible enough to be able to handle two car seats with ease.
Does it fit three car seats? No
Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat scored below in our Car Seat Check of the 2019 Volkswagen Golf.
