All About The Hatchback

There are a lot of different styles of car being driven around the streets of our cities. There are four by fours, pickups, sedans, sports cars, two and four door versions and, of course, the hatchback. Here is some information on the hatchback.

You know you are looking at a hatchback if the car looks like a sedan with the boot cut off. This does mean that the average hatchback is a lot shorter and has less boot space than the average sedan, but it makes up for it in other ways.

The one way that a hatchback makes up for its lack of boot space is by having a shorter wheel base than a sedan or any other kind of car. This means that a hatchback can turn around in a much smaller space than any other kind of car, except maybe the South African taxi minibus. This means that it is a lot easier to get out of tight spots and to get out of parking bays when other cars would have been parked in.

The lack of a boot also makes the hatchback a great deal lighter than most sedans. This means that it has a tendency to use less fuel. This is because the engine has to push or pull along less weight so it does not need as much fuel to produce the power required to move the car which leads to lowered fuel consumption.

You do not need to be concerned that you will not be able to put your month's shopping into the back of your hatchback though. There is still plenty of room for that kind of thing. The boot has only been shortened, not done away with altogether. You might have some trouble going on holiday for long periods of time though. You can easily install a tow bar on most hatchback vehicles though so you can make up for that problem with a trailer.

The hatchback's lack of a boot also makes it great for in traffic driving. You will be able to get through smaller gaps in traffic safely which means that you should be able to get to work faster than you would if you were in a four by four and will sue less petrol to do it.
