In the automotive industry, sedans have become one of the most popular types of vehicles but hatchbacks are slowly gaining favor in certain markets, particularly in the compact category. Hatchbacks have benefits that make them stand out, for those with specific needs. Here are a few reasons why hatchbacks could be the best vehicle type for your business.
One of the benefits of renting a hatchback is the larger cargo space. Hatchbacks can have larger spaces compared to some midsize sedans. All it takes to maximize the cargo area is to fold the rear seats and you instantly turn a compact car into a cargo hauler with ease.
This is made possible because of the higher interior volume it has versus a sedan. So even if both vehicle types can fold their rear seats, hatchbacks will still hold more volume. It also allows you the flexibility to put various combinations of people and loads depending on the situation. This comes in handy when you need to utilize every available space in your vehicle when hauling larger-than-usual items.
Because hatchbacks don’t have the extended trunk space in the back, these kinds of cars can navigate better in dense traffic conditions and can park in tight parking spots. This is a significant advantage for those who often do business in the city centre or anywhere where space is a premium.
A distinguishing feature of hatchbacks is that the rear door opening is much larger than that of a typical sedan. This allows for bulkier items to fit into the interior compartment.
The higher roofline also affords more visibility because of the larger glass panels that hatchbacks generally have. Most hatchbacks have upright rear windows that aid in providing a more expansive view of the back from the rearview mirror.
One company that has taken on the challenge of creating the ultimate hatchback is Chevrolet. The Chevy Cruze Hatchback combines a sporty image with the versatility that comes with a roomy cabin space. Based on Chevrolet’s signature design philosophy, the Cruze provides a modern look using flowing, sculpted lines that results in a handsome styling yet ergonomically designed for comfort.
The Cruze’s 60/40 split-folding rear seats provide the ease of loading and unloading cargo no matter how bulky the load. You get a maximum interior cargo volume of 1,337L when the rear seats are folded down.
In terms for fuel efficiency, the Chevy Cruze’s powertrains are among the most efficient in its class. A fuel-efficient diesel engine option is also available. Most Cruzes are fitted with a small turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine rated at 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. It boasts of an impressive 52 mpg highway fuel-economy rating.
This combination of a sporty design and a versatile cargo carrying capacity sets the Cruse Hatchback apart from most vehicles in the market. If you are looking for a small yet practical car to rent or lease, then look no further than the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback.
