Why A Hatchback Is A Hot Choice

If you’re in the market for a compact car then you should have your eyes set on a hatchback; after all, hatchbacks are now the most popular car in the UK – and for good reason.

Hatchbacks used to be diddy, urban run-arounds, but modern designs have managed to make these small cars an abundance of space and practicality. Let’s take a look at a few other reasons why a hatchback should be your next choice of car:


Some small hatchbacks have the Tardis effect of offering seemingly more space than other, larger cars can. With folding seats as standard on most hatchbacks you can easily transform your compact car into a cargo hauler to transport the family, and then some.

Small on the Outside

Whilst the interior matches that of much larger cars, the exterior still remains much smaller than their sedan counterparts. If you live in a city where space is at a premium, a hatchback will help you keep yourself compact, so as well as transporting the family on weekends, you wont struggle to find a parking space for work during the week either.

Better headroom for passengers

The hatchbacks roofline is generally higher when compared with a sedan giving those back-seat passengers much more headroom. Gone are the days when your passengers are scrunched up into the back seat, arriving at their destination with no feeling left in their legs and a pain in the neck.

Better Visibility

Thanks to the higher roofline we just discussed, hatchbacks also have more window and windscreen space allowing for better visibility. Rear windows are much more upright giving drivers a much improved 360-degree view of their surroundings. Passengers also benefit from better views in the back seats.
