Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Vehicle-specific weight ratings

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

All data in the official vehicle documents take precedence over these data. All data in this manual apply to the basic German model. The vehicle data sticker in the service schedule and the official vehicle documents show which engine is installed in your vehicle.

The values quoted here may differ if additional equipment is fitted, for different models or for special vehicles.

The values for the kerb weight in the following tables apply for the road-ready vehicle with driver (75 kg), service fluids including fuel tank carrying 90% of its capacity and, if applicable, toolkit and spare tyre  . Additional equipment and retrofitted accessories increase the stated kerb weight and reduce the maximum permitted load accordingly.

The load comprises the weights of the following:
