Why Are Hatchbacks So Popular?

Thinking of Leasing a Hatchback?

Hatchbacks make up a large portion of the most popular cars in Britain and for good reason. They're practical, cheaper than most SUVs and coupes, and come in various makes and models. They're great family cars, and a popular choice if you simply want a car that gets you from A to B. Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we provide car leasing in Leicester and across the country, perfect if you're looking for a hatchback for a fraction of the price of paying upfront.

Whether you're looking for a personal car or a commercial vehicle leasing deal, all of our contracts are tailored for individuals and businesses alike. All our leasing contracts can be tailored to suit your preferences and budget, providing you with the perfect car and fixed monthly rentals. Are you considering a hatchback for your next motor? Read our list of benefits below.


Whether you only need to complete your weekly shop, or you're packing everything away to move out, hatchbacks are incredibly versatile. Even though some may have a small boot, the back seats in most hatchbacks can fold down, creating extra storage space when needed. They're also perfect for fitting into tight spaces when you're out and about. Around 129 brand new car models don't fit into your standard parking space, so hatchbacks are a great choice.

Here at MWVC, all of our vehicle leasing deals are tailored to suit you, and following your initial rental, your monthly rentals will never change. This hybrid Ford Puma lease deal is currently just £254.86 per month inc. VAT and its size make it the perfect family car. Its extended boot space gives it an edge if you're looking for extra storage space too.


Hatchbacks are cheaper to buy and lease than larger cars such as SUVs, on average. They tend to be cheaper on insurance too. Their lighter construction means they're usually better for fuel consumption, although there are plenty of electric vehicles out there if you're looking to lower your carbon footprint.

The Renault Zoe is one of our greener hatchbacks here at MWVC and is one of the best electric cars if you're looking for a simple model that helps you complete your daily tasks. For just £193.30 per month inc. VAT, the Zoe could be the perfect next car for you, and its fully electric properties mean you won’t have to pay any road tax either. As well as providing car leasing in Leicester and across the country, we also have a range of brand-new van leasing deals, including electric vans, which you can view here.

More Stylish and Less Bulky

As previously mentioned, cars such as 4x4s and estates can be quite large in size, and aren't as practical if you're wanting to squeeze into small parking spaces and down double-parked roads. Hatchbacksalso come in hundreds of different styles and colours, so you'll never have to worry about running out of choice. Hatchbacks don't just come in one size either; you can pick a large or small hatchback to fit your needs.

Here at MWVC, we have a wide range of hatchbacks perfect for all kinds of individuals and families. Our special offers section boasts some of our top picks specially chosen to give you the best deal possible.
