In 2013, hatchbacks have become a popular choice for those looking to buy a new car. However, hatchbacks retreated even further: Citroën was the first to introduce such a car, way back in 1938. Since then, the distinctive hatchback design has maintained its popularity in a major way.
While it’s easy to mistake it for a station wagon, there are some basic differences. A station wagon usually emphasizes cargo and passenger space. A hatchback, on the other hand, usually prefers style over cargo space. What this means for car owners is that hatchbacks are potentially more versatile, offering the best of both worlds: they can be sporty and attractive and useful for hauling cargo and passengers.
In England, one of the most famous examples of hatchbacks is Vauxhall Adam is available at Bristol Street Motors, a highly customizable hatchback that combines – in Vauxhall’s own words – “bold design and pure individuality.” In keeping with this design philosophy, nearly every feature on the Adam – inside and out – can be customized to suit your style and preferences, from exterior paint color to upholstery materials and steering wheel color.
Featuring a distinctive and highly modern design, the Adam is a great choice for anyone looking for a car that is truly an extension of their personality. The Adam also features a very compact design, offering a low profile and great agility, making it the perfect choice for urban drivers. When carrying extra passengers or cargo, Adam’s three-door design offers easy access to the second row of seats. Adam’s is also very affordable, with new plans starting at £11,255.
Another popular hatchback option, worldwide, is Ford Fiesta is available at Bristol Street Motors. Like most hatchbacks, the Fiesta is the perfect mix of versatility and good looks. The immediate advantage the Fiesta has over the Adam is its four-door design, although for some hatchback owners the extra doors won’t make much of a difference. The Fiesta also offers best-in-class fuel economy, offering up to 30 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway.
The Fiesta features a very attractive and well-appointed interior, offering more space for the driver and passengers than one would expect from a car of this size. One more advantage the Fiesta has over its Vauxhall counterpart is its price: the Fiesta starts at around £9300.
Whatever choice you make, a hatchback is sure to grab attention and give you the balance you’re looking for between style and substance. It has been a firm favorite around the world for decades. It is likely to continue to be popular given the current economic climate as more people seek to reduce costs. Whichever hatchback you choose, you will be very happy with your purchase.
