2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI Long-Term Road Test


2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Golf Clubs in the Trunk

August 21, 2013

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

After my experience with our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI the previous weekend, it really wasn't surprising that our large VW managed a three-person golf outing with ease.

As the photo shows, our golf bags, including Takahashi's silly giant cart bag, fit width-ways with drivers (as in the golf club, not the car pilot) in place. In many cars you need to remove the driver (ditto) or place a bag or two diagonally. The Passat's trunk couldn't make it easier, and in fact, we probably could've fit in an extra bag if our fourth passenger had decided to join us (see below).

But sadly, Maggie decided to visit some dog friends while we hit the links. Didn't stop her from saying hi to Mark, though.
