Hatchback vs. SUV; Which Car Should I Choose?

With so many body types to choose from, it can be hard to decide which car is the absolute best choice for you, your budget and your lifestyle. You need to balance the perfect driving experience, cost and practicality effectively in order to get the most out of your vehicle. SUVs and hatchbacks are two of the most popular body types each with their own merits, but which is the best for you? With a range of nationwide leasing deals on offer, we're here to help.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we can tailor our collection of pickup, van and car leasing deals to match your budget and preferences. With special offers for personal and business use alike, you can drive a brand-new car, van or pickup for a fraction of the price of buying outright. Our SUV and hatchback come in various styles and prices, but which is most optimal for you? Read our handy guide below.

Larger Family: SUV

If you live on your own or in a couple, a large SUV or 4x4 might not be the most practical choice. When you have a bigger family, you tend to venture out more in your vehicle to partake in fun activities you can all enjoy. SUVs not only have the space for passengers and items such as luggage; you can also add optional extras such as roof racks to carry bikes and roof boxes. SUV's combine off-road features with the comfort of passenger cars, making long journeys easy and enjoyable.

The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV costs just £303.94* per month inc. VAT, perfect if you're in need of a luxury SUV on an affordable monthly rental contract. When leasing a car, you simply pay your initial rental, and your monthly rentals will never change throughout your contract, allowing you to manage your finances.

Sportier, Smoother Drive: Hatchback

Sports cars and coupes are the perfect choice if you're looking for a fast ride, but hatchbacks are the more affordable option, and they still have a sporty feel. Hatchbacks have a lower centre of gravity when compared to SUVs, meaning they are better to control when turning around sharp corners. They're much more compact too, allowing you to drive in a less bulky, speedier model.

If you're looking for an electric car on a monthly leasing deal, the Renault Zoe is currently just £193.30* per month inc. VAT, and is the perfect car for nipping from A to B with ease. Its fully electric properties make it a great choice for lowering your carbon footprint; you can view our fully collection of sustainable vehicles here.

Practicality and Flexibility: SUV

As previously mentioned, SUV's have plenty of space for both passengers, luggage and other necessities alike. They're also better on rougher, more uneven roads, allowing for more control and leverage. Whether you need to travel long distances for a camping trip or just pop to the shops, SUV's can do it all and more.

Here at MWVC, we have a range of SUVs on offer suitable to your tastes and preferences. All of our nationwide leasing deals come with road tax included, and your brand-new vehicle can be delivered straight to your door in mainland UK, like this Mercedes-Benz GLB SUV. At just £383.34 per month* inc. VAT, it's the perfect luxury SUV for all families.

Cheaper: Hatchbacks

Hatchbacks are incredibly popular, usually due to the ease of driving and the cost of running. Hatchbacks have smaller engines and parts, making the cost of repairs significantly cheaper. They're also easier to maintain, and are cheaper to lease on average. If you don't have a lot of money to spare, but you'd like a brand-new motor to drive around in, hatchbacks are the perfect choice.

Authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, MWVC is a reliable, professional leasing company you can trust. Our nationwide leasing deals are perfect for your budget and style, allowing you to moderate your contract length and initial budget to suit you.
