Which Car is Best for Me? Body Types

Need Help Choosing The Perfect Vehicle?

There are numerous car body types out there that suit a range of different people and their needs. From coupes, if you want to ride in style, to hatchbacks for that all-important storage space, all cars have their perks. But which car is best for your needs and preferences? Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we have a range of car leasing deals suited to your budget, suitable for personal and business use alike. 

Your preferred type of car is personal to you, and you need one that does the job whilst remaining affordable. All of our vehicle leasing deals can be built around you, and can even be delivered to your door across the mainland UK. Are you struggling to figure out which body type is the best for you? Read our handy guide below. 


As mentioned in our previous article, hatchbacks are incredibly popular cars. Its sizeable trunk and easily foldable chairs make it a great car for extra storage space and is the perfect family car. Hatchbacks are also great for fitting into smaller spaces, and if you're leasing a car, they're much cheaper on average than an SUV or coupe. If you need a car that's less bulky and more stylish, a hatchback could be perfect for you. 

If you're in need of a family hatchback, the Citroen C4 hatchback is the perfect size, and even comes with air bumps on the doors to prevent damage when opening the door in tight spaces. We currently have the C4 Cactus on special offer for just £177.65 per month inc. VAT*, is perfect if you're looking for a personal car leasing contract that doesn't break the bank. 


If you're looking for a sportier car, then a coupe is right up your street. With a low roof and two doors, it's the optimal car for single people and couples alike. They're incredibly stylish and newer models make quite the statement on the roads. If space isn't a priority for you, but you need a nifty little car that can get you to places quickly, then you probably need to consider a coupe. 

To drive around in style, look towards this brand new BMW 4 series coupe. Its monthly rentals cost just £405.05 per month inc. VAT*, is perfect if you prefer a sportier car without the expensive pricing. To view our full special offers on car leasing deals, please visit us here


SUV stands for Sports Utility Vehicle; it combines the stylish assets of your regular passenger car with the durable features of an off-road vehicle. It's appropriate for larger families and those who travel on more 'adventurous' paths, such as those who go camping. It prioritises comfort and size, allowing for longer drivers to be carried out more pleasantly. 

If you want to drive in style as well as get from A to B as smoothly as possible, we currently have the Audi Q5 SUV for just £454.45 per month inc. VAT*. If you would like to view our full collection of car, van or pickup personal and business lease deals, you can visit us here


The most popular body style that you'll see on the roads, saloons tend to provide better fuel economy, performance and affordability than other cars. They're longer and lower to the ground, making their centre of gravity better for turning sharp corners and for going around roundabouts. They're a practical commuter car, so if you need your vehicle for travelling to work as well as taking the family away for the weekend, then a saloon is the classic choice. 

If you're looking for a saloon that can also help you lower your carbon footprint, we have the Plug-in Electric Hybrid Volkswagen Passat Saloon for just £399.26 per month inc. VAT*; it even makes for a quiet drive due to its electric battery.
