My best friend is a medium sized Border Collie/Aussie Shepherd. He is turning eight and getting a bit arthritic, so he needs a ramp to get into the hatch area. I put a pad down on the cargo floor and he is just fine in the back with the seats down as long as I drive at a moderate pace (otherwise he will deposit his breakfast all over the floor). I put a harness on him which is attached with a fitted strap which goes to one of the rear safety belt clasps. The dog has lots of room but if I need some space to put stuff with him aboard I have to chuck it all in the passenger seat. Unfortunately this sometimes sets off the belt warning chime so I also have to attach the passenger seatbelt to its clasp. I prefer this arrangement to letting him travel in the back seat with its nice pristine white leather and black suede. But as far as size is concerned, it may be a bit tight for a bouncy, active, playful Golden Retriever (I know, I have had a few of these loveable and goofy canines over the years).
