    Lost in translation? So what's the bottom line?
    Gen3 you get 3-golf bags and a 1-spare tire; Gen4 you get 3 golf bags and 0-spare tire?

    EDIT: I assume it is the no-spare Gen4 option being shown

    and both have the lower rear window blocked.
    The Gen4 might have a spare, though.

    Three golf bags will go into both cars, resolved. Then there's:

    Uneven hatch floor, not so good if you're sliding in big boxes, need even bearing under flat screen tv or similar. No underfloor storage tray (that was a treasure trove). Two glove boxes becomes one chintzy one, dictated by dash "sculpture". Centre console storage becomes smart phone charging cradle.

    No charging cradle on mine. That is only on some trim levels. My console is matte black too, not "white china".

    You have to laugh! Some people buy a car without a spare wheel and then cry cause it's got no spare. The mind boggles. (n):unsure:

    ...forgot to mention, Gen3 also has a 3-ft3 cubby space under the floor.

    +56cm in width? lol. And the 3rd golf bag is lower than the rear window in the Gen 4 (it slightly obscures the rear view vision in the Gen 3).

    I'll must admit the Gen4 is going to look better in the Golf joint parking lot.
    Gee I haven't swung a club since we moved from New Jersey in 2000.
