Reasons to Get a Hatchback over a Sedan

Posted Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Between a sedan and a hatchback, the former is the more popular type of vehicle, hands down. But the latter is becoming more and more popular, especially in the compact vehicle segment. If you’re looking for good deals on a hatchback, you should check out the available models at Lucky Car Ducky. But if you’re still on the fence about these compact vehicles, below are three reasons you should seriously consider getting one.

Generous Space

Hatchbacks are perfect for those who prioritize cargo space. These vehicles can generally hold more stuff than sedans and other compact cars. Most models have split-folding rear seatbacks that can further expand cargo space.

Of the available hatchbacks, the Toyota Prius has one of the biggest cargo spaces, with 21.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. Available at Lucky Car Ducky is a used 2014 model of the popular hybrid vehicle. It has a 1.8-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine mated to an automatic transmission. It has an impressive fuel-efficiency rating of 51 mpg for city driving and 48 mpg for highway driving. The unit has an odometer reading of 176,942 miles, and you can have it for $11,900.


Hatchbacks are also more flexible than other types of compact vehicles. Their spacious interiors benefit the most from having split-folding rear seats. If you need to transport people, all you need to do is keep the seats up. But if you need to transform your vehicle into a cargo hauler, just fold the rear seats.

Another vehicle with excellent cargo space is the Hyundai Accent Hatchback, with 21.2 cubic feet of space behind the back seats. You can further expand this space to 47.5 cubic feet by folding the rear seats. A 2014 model of the Accent is available at Lucky Car Ducky. The Hyundai uses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with an automatic transmission. It has an EPA rating of 27 mpg for city driving and 37 mpg for highway driving. It has a mileage of 109,576 and a price tag of $10,500.

Surprisingly Big on the Inside

Hatchbacks are surprisingly big on the inside, even if they look small from the outside. The interior space of some models is comparable to those of larger vehicles. But hatchbacks remain the best option for those looking for a car with a small footprint. These vehicles are perfect for cities where space is at a premium. It’s easy to find a parking space with a compact car.

One type of vehicle that is small but is surprisingly spacious on the inside is the Honda Fit. You can get a used 2019 Honda Fit at Lucky Car Ducky for $14,900. It has an odometer reading of 124,034 miles. A 1.5-liter four-cylinder I-VTEC engine powers this front-wheel-drive vehicle. It has a fuel-efficiency rating of 33 mpg for city driving and 40 mpg for highway driving.
