How Much More Space is Available in a Hatchback Than in a Sedan?

The idea of a hatchback door that opened upward on roof hinges was generated by the need for space in small vehicles. These vehicles were offered as a reasonable compromise between fuel economy and cargo carrying capability. It took decades for major automobile manufacturers to latch on to the design of a hatchback.

Current automobile models with hatchbacks come in every size of vehicle. The hatchback allows more cargo space as it demands a higher roof at the rear of the vehicle to accommodate the hatch. Add in the standard rear seat fold, and more space is generated. Whether you are driving a subcompact or a large SUV, the space offered by the hatchback is a distinct advantage over the space in a sedan.

At Malloy Hyundai in Woodbridge, VA, we offer hatchbacks of every size.
