Editor’s note: This Car Seat Check was written in June 2019 about the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI. Little of substance has changed with this year’s model. See what’s new for 2020 or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.
The verdict: The Volkswagen Golf GTI hot hatch combines fun with practicality. Add in its easy-access Latch anchors and you have one of the most fun small family cars on the market. We had no trouble installing car seats, though taller front occupants could need more legroom when rear-facing car seats are installed.
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 VW Golf GTI.
