Some years have this, some don't. At least the mk4 cars. The mk5 cars all have this feature. The pull handle on the inside of the trunk glows green instead of red or being lit by a light .

The reason why is because little kids who are the most likely to get caught in the trunk will associate red or bright with being hot. Green glowing won't prevent them from touching it. car fact #200542

heard about it a long time ago...a quick internet search reveals...

ll cars made after 2001 are equipped with a trunk handle release in case of accidental entrapment. Parents and caregivers should first look in trunks if missing children cannot be found quickly.

Children should be taught that trunks are not safe places to play; they are for storage and should be used under adult supervision only.

In an emergency, cars built after 2001 are built with a glow-in-the-dark trunk release handle.

Many older care can be retrofitted with a trunk release handle by the dealership.
