While the hatchback deserves its reputation for adaptability, what if your head's turned by stylish looks? The iconic two-door Fiat 500 delivers compact curves and bags of fashionable flair over three trims (Pop, Lounge, Abarth—across all model years). From 2018, all trims benefit from a 1.4L turbocharged engine, and you can find some eye-catching limited edition packages too.
If you're shopping for cargo and interior space, have a look at the dimensions offered by Honda. The 2018 Civic has impressive in-cabin storage and cargo capability that expands from 25.7 cu.ft (seats in place) up to 46.2 cu.ft behind the driver. The 2018 Fit is equally impressive, with a total cargo space of 52.7 cu.ft. Both vehicles benefit from Honda's nifty Magic Seat system, ideal for large or complex cargo.
Having access to the latest driver tech can be a deciding factor when it comes to ride enjoyment. For high-end features at a base trim entry point, consider the 2018 Chevrolet Spark. Its LS base trim includes Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capability, seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth® connectivity, USB points, and more.
The humble hatchback is the original crossover vehicle: an everyday all-rounder that exceeds expectations thanks to a wide range of unique and stylish models. This updated list of the best hatchbacks for 2020 shoppers has plenty to please.
