The Best Used Hatchbacks Available Today

Hatchbacks are one of the most reasonably priced, fun, and practical car types on the market. And when you buy them used, you get an even better deal on them. Here are some of the best used hatchbacks to buy today.

Toyota Matrix

This is essentially a hatchback version of the bestselling, comfortable, and reliable Toyota Corolla. It is also available with all-wheel drive, which is a rare feature among compact hatches. It’s powered by a 158hp, 2.4L engine, which is fun, or a 132hp, 1.8L engine, which is frugal. Look for versions from 2013 which are still likely to be in good shape.

Honda Fit

The version of this bestselling hatch you’re looking for is the second-gen from 2014. This subcompact is surprisingly large on the inside and small enough to fit into really cramped parking sports. It’s powered by an efficient 117hp, 1.5L engine that returns 35mpg.

Mini Cooper

This one may not be as reliable as Japanese hatches, but is an absolute hoot to drive. If you enjoy engaging driving dynamics, this is the hatch to go for. It’s light and powered by a 121hp, 1.6L engine that loves to be pushed. Look for something introduced before 2014 for a good deal.

Chevrolet Sonic

This little hatch was always a competitive one. It was available with a 138hp, 1.4L turbocharged engine that delivered about 40mpg on the highway. It also has a large cargo area to store almost anything you need. Prices are rock bottom thanks to unfounded doubts about its quality. Pick one up before people realize how wrong they are about it.

Volkswagen GTI

The ultimate hot hatch – mature enough to be taken seriously and crazy enough to be an incredible amount of fun. The GTI features a 200hp, 2.0L turbocharged engine that’s mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission. Look for one built around 2014.

Ford Fiesta

This is a special little car. It’s efficient and cheap. You will never be bored when you’re behind the wheel of a Fiesta. It’s powered by a 120hp, 1.6L engine and has a balanced suspension that inspires confidence.
