2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Rear Seat is Large Enough to Haul Livestock

February 12, 2014

2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI

Okay, so a guinea pig might not be livestock, technically, but when it's in its 2x2x3-foot cage, it's almost the size of a farmyard animal.

Once in a while, my girl's guinea pig, Cafe, needs to be transported and I always hope I have a large enough vehicle (preferably not a coupe) for those times. I couldn't have been more pleased that I had our 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI on this occasion. Not only do the rear doors swing open nearly ninety degrees for easy loading, but the cumbersome cage is dwarfed by the scale of the rear seat accommodations.

In the meantime, I'll go online and find a proper guinea pig restraint system (GPRS) to safely transport the critter next time, but I'm not sure those exist.
