Trunk and interior space in 2016 VW vehicles

We all have priorities when it comes to our driving needs. For some it’s fuel-economy, while others are most concerned with features. For tall drivers, families and those who like to shop in bulk, interior space and cargo room can be a top concern, and worth considering when you’re looking for your next vehicle. Rather than making you dig through spec sheets, we’ve done the research for you on the trunk and interior space in all 2016 VW vehicles.

Which Volkswagen models have the most space?

A quick look at the chart below will show that the 2016 Volkswagen Touareg has the most cargo space and passenger volume of any model in the VW lineup, though the 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen has the largest area when it comes to maximum cargo space as it makes full use of the interior when the rear seats are folded flat. Not surprisingly, the least amount of cargo space is found in convertibles, so they aren’t the best choices for a family car.

Model Passenger Volume Cargo Space / Max Cargo Space
2016 VW Touareg 103.6 cu. ft. 32.1 cu. ft. / 64.0 cu. ft.
2016 VW Golf SportWagen 94.3 cu. ft. 30.4 cu. ft. / 66.5 cu. ft.
2016 VW Tiguan 95.4 cu. ft. 23.8 cu. ft. / 56. 1 cu. ft.
2016 VW e-Golf 93.5 cu. ft. 22.8 cu. ft. / 52.7 cu. ft.
2016 VW Golf R 93.5 cu. ft. 22.8 cu. ft. / 52.7 cu. ft.
2016 VW Golf GTI 93.5 cu. ft. 22.8 cu. ft. / 52.7 cu. ft.

2016 VW Jetta 94.1 cu. ft. 15.7 cu. ft. / 15.7 cu. ft.
2016 VW Beetle 85.1 cu. ft. 15.4 cu. ft. / 29.9 cu. ft.

2016 VW Beetle Convertible 81.4 cu. ft. 7.1 cu. ft. / 7.1 cu. ft.

We still think the 2016 Volkswagen Golf family are among the best options when it comes to combining available features and driving dynamic with plenty of space for the compact segment. Not everyone is a fan of the hatchback design, but once you realize you can have cargo space that is almost competitive with SUVs, they really are a practical choice. This is why they are among the top options for college students, as you can pack a whole lot in the back when driving off to move into a college dorm in the fall, and also bring laundry hampers full of clothes home for the weekend. The Golf really is one of our most versatile vehicles.
