Hatchbacks are a popular choice because of their clever use of interior space. Available with either three or five doors, they tend to be shorter than traditional sedans, but still offer useful room for storage and passengers. You can buy a hatch in all sizes, from tiny city cars to small and mid-size hatches, right up to large luxury models.
