Which are the best cars for golfers?

Which are the best cars for golfers?

By Swansway Motor Group 20-05-2019


We have created a list of Cars that we think will be perfect for you and your golfing equipment.

For the love of golf! Top 10 cars for golf lovers.

You may think that as playing golf demands rather a lot of cumbersome equipment, you'd need a big car to fit everything in; but, you'd be wrong! Just as golfers come in all shapes and sizes, so do the cars which can accomodate your golf clubs and if you don't mind dropping part of your rear seats, you can even fit them in an iconic city car!

5 things you need to think about when you're choosing a golf-friendly car:

  • How deep is the lip on the boot? A high lip can cause real problems heaving your clubs over it.
  • If the car has a tailgate does it have automatic closing?
  • Is the loadspace as unrestricted as possible; no protruding wheelarches?
  • Have I measured the length of my clubs from the bottom of the bag to the tip of the driver?
  • Am I bothered about the golf club car heirarchy?

How often you play; if you want to be able to accommodate a playing partner and their clubs too; these are other things you need to consider, but ultimately you don't have to drive a large SUV or an estate just because you're a golfer, though there are some really great ones to choose from if you choose to go large.

Golfers are all shapes and sizes & so are Golfer's cars:

City Car

Make like Italian icon Molinari with a Fiat 500

The word ‘icon’ is over-used, but not in this case! Just like open-winning Italian golfer Francesco Molinari.The Fiat 500 is seriously cool, full of retro personality, street-style and Italian chic, it's also much more versatile than you might imagine and with half the rear seat down will accommodate your golf clubs with Italian aplomb.

So, if you still want to be retro-cool, park in the smallest of spaces with ease and be able to personalise your car to your hearts content, you needn't let your love of the fairways stop you from getting behind the wheel of one utterly distinctive Fiat 500. If you prefer something just as iconic but with a sporting prowess then check out the stunning Abarth range too.

Estate Cars

An estate car is an obvious choice for the avid golfer and today's estate cars aren't  the ugly elongated saloons of old. They are individually designed to deliver large loadspaces, whilst still looking contemporary and elegant.

If you want all the practicality of an estate car, but don't want your car to like an estate car, help is at hand with the sinuously elegant Peugeto 308 SW. There's no stretched hatchback here; the Peugeot 308 SW offers pared back, sleek, swept, elegant design.

With a light bright interior, you and your passengers can enjoy the comfortable seating, whilst still having oodles of room for all your golfing paraphenalia. From golf-bag to golf-trolley the huge boot-space will swallow it up. The Peugeot i-Cockpit gives the drive a head-up display and puts them right at the centre of the driving experience, along with super-connectivity to the world.

German engineering, precision & passion; Martin Kaymer & Audi A6 Avant

You may well need an estate car for all of its wonderful practicality; if you have a parner you regularly give a lift to the golf course and you want to fit in two sets of clubs and trollies it doesn't mean you have to sacrifice good looks and cutting-edge technology. The Audi A6 Avant is a large estate car that'll waft you to the fairways in absoulte comfort, whilst making long motorway drives to far away courses an absolute breeze!

Saloon Cars

Today's saloon cars are really extended hatchbacks offering the practicality of a tailgate and in consequence an awful lot nmore loadspace than you might imagine.

  • Peugeot 508
  • Volkswagen Arteon

French elegance & flair: Karine Icher & Peugeot 508

A saloon that thinks it's a coupe crossed with a sports car! That's the Peugeot 508 fastback. Brilliant styling makes this saloon a real head-turner and it's not just a handsome car, it'ds packed with technological innovations too.

Marrying elegance and muscularity with sportiness and sleek lines the 508 fastback is a bold choice for those who want to stand out from the crowd; at the same time it offers luxury, and who doesn't love that! Its raked tailgate gives access to a truly enormous loadspace, offering more than enough room for you and your playing partners clubs.

German quality & consistency; Caroline Masson & Volkswagen Arteon

With its aerodynamic styling and frameless windows the Volkswagen Arteon certainly strikes a pose. Elongated with a longwheelbase, the Arteoen is sleek and low, exuding elegance and a hint of hidden promise. Unlikely that you'd realise that part of that promise, hidden beneath the Arteon's tailgate, is a loadspace large enough for two sets of clubs. 

A beauty to behold and a bonus to drive, try the Arteon will take you to the course in style.
