One of the first questions you'll have to answer of yourself while shopping for a used car is which body style you prefer. For some, there's no beating the toughness and capability of a pickup. For others, it's all about the slick style and sporty appeal of a coupe. But there's one body style that we here at The Suburban Collection think can serve a wide variety of drivers well.

If you're looking for an affordable, practical, fun car that can handle a wide variety of driving applications, you may want to consider a pre-owned hatchback. Combining the utility of a wagon or crossover with the frugal nature of a compact car, the humble hatchback offers the best of both worlds.

Still need some convincing? Here are a few reasons to consider a used hatchback.

They're Practical

A rear liftback combined with folding rear seats can transform your hatchback into a cargo carrying machine. It's easy to stow bulkier loads in the rear area. Plus, most hatchbacks offer seating for up to five so you can bring your friends along when needed.

They're Fun to Drive

Small, light, and nimble: it's a recipe for fun found in all sorts of hatchback models. Most aren't terribly fast in a straight line, but they can put a smile on your face on a tight road with plenty of corners. Put in even a modest amount of power, however, and low weight will work in your favor.

They're Full of Value

Buying a used hatchback is a great way to get more car for your money. They're relatively affordable and prepare drivers for everything from road trips and commuting to spirited back road drives. You'll get plenty of fun and utility without paying prices found with SUVs and sports cars.
