Hatchbacks 'are the car of choice for many'

Posted by Greg Throughton

Drivers and those who own Thetford caravan refrigeration may prefer hatchback cars to any other type of vehicle, one expert has suggested.

The hatchback car is among the most popular types of vehicle because it is so practical and has plenty of room for storage of shopping, luggage and appliances for your campervan.

Carlton Boyce, a freelance motoring journalist and photographer, said that when choosing a car type, customers will often opt for a hatchback rather than a saloon car, which is not as practical.

He explained: "A hatchback is popular because it's so practical, so if a car owner wants to be able to fit a dog or a large amount of luggage [or] shopping in their car, then they buy a hatchback."

Mr Boyce suggested that drivers could also put the seat down for even more storage space in hatchback motors.

Demand for 4x4 cars has hugely increased as the summer months come to an end to prepare for the harsh winter weather, according to Glass's. Mr Boyce suggested this is because they are cheap to buy and have lower running costs.
