This article will highlight five of the most popular hatchbacks on roads in the UK today.

You’ll find plenty of space inside which makes it the ideal choice for larger families and it does not cost a lot to run if you choose this as the car you use for your daily commutes and school runs. 

Ford Fiesta

The smallest of all of the hatchbacks we have highlighted in this article, what it lacks in size it makes up for in performance and comfort.
