Volkswagen Golf Hatchback boot space, practicality and safety

1984 - 1992 (change model)
Practicality rating: 2.5 out of 52.5

Written by Parkers Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019

Lacks safety features considered basic by today’s standards; solid build quality but little protection for driver or passengers. No alarm or immobiliser was fitted when new; look for models with good aftermarket additions; more secure than other models of its generation.

Boot space is fine for a couple or a small family – there’s enough room for the weekly shop and the other chores of family life. No clever cubbies inside, but the glovebox is a good size.
