This Year’s Best Hatchbacks


Hatchbacks are great. They’re fun to drive and almost always offer better value and more useful interior space than sedans. They can even provide most of the functionality of crossovers while being cheaper and more fuel-efficient. So, if you’re interested, here’s a list of the best hatchbacks of the year.

Volkswagen Golf

 This is one of the classiest hatchbacks in the market. It’s affordable, efficient, and very practical. And if you want sportscar-level performance for regular prices, there’s always the 228hp Golf GTI.

Honda Civic

 This sporty hatchback is packed with technology and safety features, has powerful and efficient engine options, and is still affordable. The Type R model hypes up the sport factor with its 306hp engine, engaging driving experience, and tons of cornering grip.

Hyundai Veloster N

 This three-door hatch has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 250hp that can be amped up to 275hp with a Performance package. It sounds appropriately menacing too. The interior is sporty and packed with convenience features that make life comfortable.

Mazda 3

This is one of the best-looking hatchbacks currently on offer. Its four-cylinder engine is efficient but not very powerful. But it handles very well. The interior is positively luxurious and extremely well built. This is a great hatchback.

Toyota Corolla

 The latest Corolla offers the same safety, reliability, and affordability as its predecessors. But it employs flashier styling, more features, and a more involved driving experience than before.

Kia Rio

This affordable, quiet, and peppy hatchback is one of the best ones you can buy. It’s surprisingly refined but limited in terms of standard features. There are plenty of options you can add, though.

Honda Fit

This small hatchback is surprisingly big. It has way more passenger and cargo space than its size suggests. Its magic folding rear seats amp up its versatility too. It’s easy to drive and very fuel-efficient, but not very engaging. It is one of the most practical and versatile cars available.

Mini Cooper

This quirky, zippy, iconic hatch is available as a three- or five-door hardtop hatch or a two-door convertible. It’s a lot of fun and extremely interesting on the inside. While it starts at a reasonable price, the desirable options are very expensive.
