A quality feel and comfortable seats in the 2011 Volkswagen Golf make up a little for less interior space than the squared-off shape suggests.

The Golf's front seats are nicely shaped for great support. The driver-side seat has plenty of adjustability, but the controls are located in three different places: the fore/aft adjuster sits out of sight at the right-front corner of the seat, the bottom cushion is raised and lowered with a lever on the left side of the cushion, and after all that, you'll have to grope for a big knob on the left rear corner of the seat bottom to change the backrest angle.

It's not quite as confusing in back. The rear seats have adjustable headrests and an armrest, and fold down nearly flat to expand access to the trunk. There's not quite as much rear-seat legroom in the three-door Golf as in the Honda Civic or the Kia Forte, a mild surprise given the Golf's boxy shape, and it can be a chore to clamber in the back. Headroom is quite good, though.

Volkswagen puts high-quality materials in the Golf's cabin. Visibility is good, too, but the base of the windshield is rather high, a result of European pedestrian collision standards.

Conclusion

Three-door models have somewhat skimpy backseat space, but the 2011 Volkswagen Gold has a well-built, well-trimmed interior.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
