The benefits of owning a hatchback

Red Ford Fiesta
When it comes to buying a new or used car, there are various decisions you'll need to make - including which body style to go for. For both small families and first time drivers, a hatchback is often the way forward, and here are some of the reasons why:

1. Cost and fuel consumption

Not only are hatchbacks likely to cost less than larger cars in terms of upfront costs, the fuel consumption is generally better too. Hatchbacks will often have smaller engines and still feel powerful given their size, with tanks that are cheaper to fill at the petrol station.

2. Better for beginners

Smaller cars are generally easier to drive than larger, more powerful vehicles - and they're easier to manoeuvre too. With smaller bonnets and flatter backs than other models, reversing is easier, as is parking.

4. Fun yet practical

There's no denying that hatchbacks are fun to drive: they're smaller and nippier than estates and other larger cars, and they're perfect for those who live in the city due to their lower running costs and ease of parking. With hatchbacks, transporting bulky items is easy: simply fold down the back seats and you've got a wealth of cargo space.

From a 1 litre Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen UP to a more powerful 1.6 litre Volkswagen Golf or Audi A1, there's a huge range of different hatchbacks available from Motor Market. If you've now been inspired to buy a hatchback, please take a look at the current stock available at Motor Market online at
