How suitable is a hatchback for me?

Hatchbacks have been a go-to for many for eternity, and it's no surprise considering their brilliant all-round capabilities, affordable running costs, and comfortable driving experience. More practical than a supermini, but not as cumbersome as an SUV or MPV, the hatchback is the perfect middle ground and proves to be a top choice for a wide variety of lifestyles.

The most popular hatchbacks include the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra, and Renault Megane as they're fantastic value for money and well-equipped as standard. If you're looking for something a little more premium, the likes of the BMW 1 Series, Volkswagen Golf, and Audi A3 are all very well-built and worth considering.
