Top Rated: Hatchback

A hatchback is a vehicle that has a rear tailgate or liftgate with a glass window, rather than a trunk lid. The term hatchback is usually applied to vehicles with one or two rows of seats, and to vehicles where the rear door is hinged from its top--but is angled to accentuate styling, versus cargo space. There's considerable overlap between hatchback and wagon body styles, even between hatchbacks and "five-door coupes." The Car Connection classifies some vehicles as both hatchbacks and wagons, as those vehicles exhibit all of the above characteristics.
