2018 Volkswagen Beetle vs 2018 Chevrolet Sonic

What are the qualifying differences between a hatchback model and a sedan model? A hatchback takes the build of a sedan and creates a more flexible drive with a fresh new design and enhanced trunk space. Taking out the barrier of the trunk, the Hatchback connects the storage space of a vehicle directly into the cabin, making it accessible without getting out of the car. The storage space is also larger and taller, giving hatchbacks their defining square look that decorates the cars' back end. While allowing more options for storage space, this eliminates the sedan's elongated back bumper, creating a shorter and more maneuverable ride.

Now that you know the basics of the hatchback's differences and advantages, it's time to take a look at some popular hatchbacks on the market. We've selected two very fashionable and affordable hatchbacks for your pleasure: the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle and the 2018 Chevrolet Sonic.
