“The Golf SportWagen has two sets of lower Latch anchors in the outboard seats. They sit under removable plastic covers and are easy to use. Three tether anchors are found midway down the rear seatbacks. They’re clearly labeled and also easy to use.

  • For our rear-facing infant and convertible seats, we were able to install them behind the front passenger seat without moving it forward. The installation was a snap with both car seats, which have rigid Latch connectors (convertible seat) and hooklike connectors (infant seat).
  • The forward-facing convertible also installed easily and fit well in the wagon’s backseat.
  • The booster fit well in the SportWagen’s contoured rear seats.”
