Top 3 Hatchbacks in the UAE
The hatchback, with early versions being traced back to as early as the 1930s, is a car body configuration that features a rear door that opens upward to access a cargo area. Some hatchbacks have a fold-down second-row seating that allows its owners to reconfigure the interiors to prioritize passenger over cargo volume. Hatchbacks can come either as a three-door or five-door car (two or four entry doors and a hatch).
Hatchbacks are both trendy and practical, being marketed as both small family cars, executive cars, and even sports cars. Below is a list of the top 3 hatchbacks which you can get for less than AED 150,000.
