Guest post: 5 Great 2013 Hatchbacks

Because they are practical, safe, comfortable and versatile, hatchbacks are increasingly popular in the UK and in the world. Here’s a look at five great hatchbacks of 2013.

Hyundai i30
The North-Korean car manufacturer has the enviable reputation to offer top-of-the-line customer service and high-quality, reliable cars. Their Hyundai i30 honors their reputation: it has been entitled Car of the Year by the website CarBuyer and named Best Family Car at the 2012 Scottish Car of the Year Awards in Glasgow.

Subaru XV
Smaller and more drivable than the Subaru Forester, yet more powerful than the Subaru Impreza, the Subaru XV is ideal for urban families: it will perform equally well on small streets than off-road. Great fuel economy, comfortable, safe and affordable: the XV is worth looking into, despite its looks that are not everyones favourite.

Audi A3
With prices starting at £19,000 Audi is pricier than other hatchbacks. But with its flexible and powerful engine, its numerous gadgets and user-friendly tools and, of course, its remarkable cabin quality, it is worth the investment.

Kia Cee’D
The second generation of Kia’s Cee’d made its worldwide premiere at the 2012 Geneva International Motor Show. Available only on the European market, this 5 doors hatchback is a great family car with improved quality and beautiful design.

Ford Focus
Last but not least, the Ford Focus is one of the best selling cars in the world. Affordable and easily drivable, the Focus is, according to Ford, “one of the most technologically advanced cars on the road today”.
