2013 VW Golf Interior

The Volkswagen Golf shows an austere functionality in its interior. Brightwork is confined to touches on steering wheel spokes, air registers, door handles, and wonderful outlines on specific knobs and shifters. Give a good touch to textures. The older Golf has more soft-touch surfaces and an interior consistency generally higher than its newer cousin, the Jetta. A matching silver ish strip separates the top and bottom dash sections and panels of the door trim.

The golf feels more spacious than it looks. Passenger’s space is equal to or competitive, at least with the other major niche players, including the hatchback of Ford Focus, Mazda3, and Kia Forte. However, golf is much shorter than any of these cars in the cargo area. There are comfortable front seats.

The 8-way manageable driver’s seat fits best with the tilt and telescope steering wheel that makes almost perfect triangulation with the steering wheel, pedaling, and shifting lever for all but the tallest and most robust conductors. Air conditioning and sound controls are comfortable in shape, proportions, and features in all models. The knobs and buttons manage the key operations. Visibility from the outside is excellent, except for large C-pillars (the rearmost roof supports).
