The family hatchback segment remains one of the most important ones of the European market. What cars are included in our TOP 5?
The main criteria for assessing a family hatchback are believed to be as follows: style, equipment, efficient engine, practical cabin, adequate price.
We’ve selected the best five hatchbacks, in our opinion.
5. Ford Focus
The new Focus has regained what the first-generation models were proud of and their predecessors somewhat lost, namely, an excellent handling, a smooth, well-balanced ride. There is enough space inside, which a completely new platform provides.
4. Kia Ceed
We could not help mentioning the third-generation Ceed. Controls and steering finally brought it to a higher level. There is enough space in the cabin for four adults. Kia certainly progresses as an automaker in all segments.
3. Mazda 3
The fourth-generation Mazda 3 may well be an attractive family-owned hatch on sale. The car has retained all the features that made its predecessor an attractive offer in the highly competitive segment. It’s about a strong price-quality ratio, as well as a great naturally aspirated gasoline engine.
2. Peugeot 308
The 308th attracts, first of all, by its price-quality ratio. The cabin is comfortable and practical, i-Cockpit is great. However, Peugeot’s engines and suspension are only one step ahead of rivals.
The Golf, apparently, will forever remain a European family icon. Excellent handling, a spacious interior, good engines are impossible to kill, plus the eighth-generation car debut is coming.
