Maybe the family favourite, the trusty Hatchback or is the family SUV replacing this option ?
The conventional family hatchback lease has been a household favourite for several years, practical and versatile with a convenient rear boot lid that hinges lifting the window allowing you easier access and the ability to store taller objects inside the boot. With so many options to choose from, what makes one stand out from the rest. Arguably the most desired will be the hatches manufactured and engineered by German owned VAG, wherever I ask anyone about hatchbacks, the names instantly thrown at me are VW Golf, Seat Leon, Audi A3, BMW 1 Series. Then you have the likes of the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Mazda 3. Now what’s interesting about these models is that many of them have a performance offering in their range appealing to those motoring enthusiast also described by some as the petrol head. They all stay true to their roots, they don’t try and disguise what they are, they offer practicality, robustness, often fuel efficiency and low overall running costs. So, some may ask, what makes them stand out? Well, their range for a start, if you take the Honda for example, they produce the hotly desired Type R, with a reputation for performance and reliability, known to be exciting to track, especially if you can book some track time. Similarly, you have the Audi, who would offer performance in their S3 or even the RS3 but only if your budget would allow. Think green and select a hybrid hatchback with the Hyundai Ioniq or perhaps you’re ready to take the bold leap into fully electric and opt for the VW ID.3 With the UK’s ambitious plans to ban the sale of all fossil fuelled vehicles from 2030 there’s a massive growth in Electric vehicles being registered in the UK.
