Vios and Altis get my vote for this. Relatively cheap, reliable and the boot can easily put 4 stand bags for Altis.

I'm with enwee on this, vios/altis as a no frills reliable family/golf car is right up there. Bought a 2nd hand altis @ 2 years old and drove it for 5 years with routine servicing completely hassle free.

As for hatchbacks, I think if you fold the back seat down, can comfortably fit, otherwise you might have to take the driver out to fit the length of the bag into the width of the car.

I'm driving a CRZ now, and it will fit 2 pax and 2 cart bags quite easily, however, since the back seat needs to be folded down, impossible to take 3 pax.

Missan Latio is best in my opinion, Biggest boot for a 1.5L car. Can accommodate 5 bags without a problem. Cool

my hyundai avante is good too.. definitely in the ranks of Vios and Latio. excellent boot space.
I am not so sure about the new elantra but the looks of it is very nice.

given that coe are so expensive now, an Elantra cost $145k where as a new Jetta is $156k. more people would choose a conti car.

One of my kakis who owned an Altis, and its boot can accommodate 4 standard size stand bags plus four small boston bags ... Cool

I think the Camry can handle 5-6 stand bags ... Laughing

For HB, you may consider the Ford Focus. Can accommodate 2 golf bags with the 3rd one stack on top.

Ok bro ... I thought the Camry boot is bigger than the Altis, no? Maybe the 2nd generation Ah Beng Camry can as I remember one of my friends drove the older Camry years ago managed to squeeze in 5 stand bags ... Laughing

Mine is the worse off, can only carry two bags and must position diagonally ... If I unfold 50% of the seat, may squeeze in another bag only ... Embarassed

Alfa Romeo Mito and VW Scirocco can fit 2 stand or cart bags. But drivers and woods have to ride in the back seats.

most cars should be able to fit lah.. trick is to remove the woods from the bag and put them separately in the boot. Me driving a Kia Rio HB.. 2 stand bags no issue.. can still squeeze in 3rd bag with careful planning.

if i have to take out driver n woods from the bag, it defeats the purpose of me having a car to accomodate the bag......

At last, someone is the same as me. Go into a showroom to open the boot first... lol!
I managed to squeeze 1 stand + 1 cart bag in a Impreza HB, and that's all.

Since we are talking about smallest car here.. although this one is not a sedan or a hb, can I just mention how surprised i was to find out tt the rx8 can fit up to 3 stand bags (2 standard size + 1 mini stand bag to be exact)? haha.. don't hv to remove woods, but for longer drivers, they will hv to be removed & be slotted in separately. Amazing!

well I got my car for family transportation purpose.. fitting the golf bag in the boot is a bonus.. coz I didn't expect the bag to fit the boot in the first place.. but when a fren told me this trick of taking out the driver.. I tot it was a cool workaround.. hehehe.
