The Golf mk7 version is too tight a fit to go through the hatch opening assembled so it has to be assembled in the boot which is a real fiddle about. It means the crate has to be flattened in the boot before removal too. This is very inconvenient when travelling and having to take the crate indoors for the dog to sleep in overnight. Disappointing considering it is such an expensive crate and £10 dearer than the standard crate which looks to be the same size as the one made for the Golf mk7. I noticed a previous review said the crate fitted perfectly with the boot floor lowered but the Pet World website shows the boot floor in the “normal” level which I’m sure most owners would want so as not to have to lift their dog over a deep lip.

I bought this Mark 7 Crate for my 2022 Mark 8 and am pleased to confirm it does fit.
It is however, a very close fit (no wasted boot space though) and has to be assembled within the car.
Tip: If the rear seats are folded forward first it makes assembly very much easier.
Once assembled the crate can be pulled back into position and the rear seats returned to vertical.
Tip: I used a couple of large bulldog clips to hold the Sides vertical whilst folding the Back & Top into position.
Tip: Make sure the crate is fully pushed against the rear seats and centered to avoid fouling the closure of the tailgate.
Note: The crate can be used either with the boot floor in upper or lower position BUT… the crate slopes backwards (on the Mk8) when in the lower position due to the shape of the floor in this position. The upper position is far better as it is level and also gives the dog a better view out avoiding travel sickness.
Important Note: (And note to manufacturer if relevant) When the sliding crate door is fully open it protrudes to the left of the crate and fouls the tailgate of the Mark 8 Golf which bends the crate door and could damage the car. A design review of the door width vs. opening and addition door stop may be something the manufacturer may wish to consider (unless this isn’t an issue on the Mark 7).
Tip: I attached a yellow zip tie to the end vertical bar of the door which extends over the edge of the tailgate opening as a reminder that the cage door is open.
Notwithstanding the abovementioned relatively minor issue (on the Mark 8 Golf at least!) it is an extremely well made crate in all respects and good value for money based on my purchase price of £119.90.
Please Note: This review is for thr Mark 8 Golf using a Mark 7 crate and some of my comments may not be relevant as a result of this.

If it was a little bit taller,wider and longer it would have alouded my gsd to turn around, stand up straight and lay down, didn’t need to be a slant back cage.
