2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Moving Day

January 23, 2015

2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI

One of my best friends recently bought his first house, and I offered a bit of extra muscle to move his considerable amount of stuff to the new place. Muscle being a euphemism, as lifting anything heavier than an empty hamster cage triggers a medically alarming amount of perspiration and ends with my damaged body crumpled in the fetal position with a slipped disc. I had the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI that weekend, and it doesn't exactly have enough storage space to move an entire apartment. However, I was still able to take boxes and assorted items with the rear seats folded.

With couches and beds stored in a trailer towed by a GMC Sierra, I was running support in the hatchback. The GTI can store plenty of assorted odds and ends if you're careful about packing it. The 60-40 rear seats drop by squeezing a small plastic release on top of each seat. It's a shame they don't fold flat, but the angle isn't too severe. I fit a few boxes, fan, tool set and television in the back. Miscellaneous computer equipment and the GTI's cargo cover rode shotgun.
