Top 5 Hatchback Cars 2021
Even with the rise in demand for SUVs, hatchbacks remain loved by a large proportion of drivers. Ideally, a hatchback car offers a practical boot, superb styling and efficient engine options. That said, with a wide range of hatchbacks to choose from, sometimes it can be difficult to decide which car to go for. Therefore, here we’ve put together our list of the top hatchbacks to hopefully help make this decision easier.
Now in its eighth generation, the Volkswagen Golf features advanced technology and connectivity like never before! In terms of design, the new Golf 8 is truly beautiful and modern, with narrow LED headlights and integrated fog lights as standard. As for the interior, we love the high-quality features, focusing on useful in-car technology and controls. VW Golf leasing remains a popular option as it’s an affordable and practical hatchback, with a wide range of trim levels to choose from. For a sportier version, you might consider leasing the Golf R-Line with sporty refinement.
The Skoda Octavia Hatchback is practical, economical and a great all-rounder which appeals as a family car. An alternative to the Volkswagen Golf, the Octavia is longer in length and has a bigger boot capacity. Over time, this Skoda model has been driven gradually upmarket, now featuring a smarter interior with more advanced driver tech on-board. Innovative connectivity features such as Skoda Connect means you can enjoy your journeys and stay connected on the road. For the environmentally conscious, the Skoda Octavia is now available as plug-in hybrid. The Octavia iV has an electric range of up to 37 miles and offers lower running costs. Meanwhile, a range of diesel and petrol engine options still remain available too.
We largely picked the Mazda3 hatchback as it has an eye-catching design and drives wonderfully. In fact, this Mazda has won various awards since being launched, including awards for design and Best Small Hatchback. Also, Mazda3 leasing proves strong competition for the Volkswagen Golf in terms of quality, although it lacks space when comparing the boot sizes. However, the Mazda3 shouldn’t be dismissed, as it offers low running costs and a fantastic infotainment system. Furthermore, the Mazda3 Hatchback comes with excellent safety features and has been rated five-stars from safety regulator, Euro NCAP.
Arguably one of the best Ford cars available in the leasing market, the Ford Focus offers excellent affordability and reliability. A Ford Focus Hatchback is a great choice as a well-equipped, family car. Since it was first launched in 1998, the Ford Focus has become one of the UK’s best-selling cars. As an alternative to the Vauxhall Astra, this Ford car comes with an abundance of safety and security features. During 2018 testing, the Ford Focus was awarded full five-stars from safety regulator, Euro NCAP. Ford clearly made safety paramount when designing the Focus, closely followed by ensuring there’s a range of highly fuel-efficient engine options.
Last but not least, we’ve picked the Kia Ceed as one of the best hatchbacks. Now in third generation form, the Kia Ceed showcases an award-winning design with a trendy interior. The Ceed Hatchback is an affordable car with a sporty styling and excellent economy figures. It’s also just as good in many areas as its key rivals, the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. In terms of boot space, the Ceed hatchback is slightly bigger than the VW Golf at 395-litres. As with all Kia lease models, the Ceed come with a seven-year/ 100,000 mile warranty as standard. For a sportier version, you might consider leasing the Kia Ceed GT with sporty refinement.
