Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

In the front, the Golf GTE provides loads of space for a family car. Its interior is broad, with more than enough head and leg room to accommodate taller ladies or gents. There's lots of storage space as well, with compartments and cupholders in the front for pretty much every need, plus a decent-sized glovebox and door bins to boot.

Move to the rear seats and the GTE isn't cramped; two tall adults will fit, but there's not a surplus of space – certainly not if you want to squeeze a third person of reasonable stature in the middle seat. It near enough matches the Audi A3 TFSIe for rear space but you’ll need to look at the Seat Leon eHybrid or Skoda Octavia iV if you’ve got lanky friends or family.
