The truth about 2-door hatchbacks is that practicality goes right out the window, but style is guaranteed. Are they the best cars? Probably not. Do they cost more? Yes. So why would you purchase one? It is simple; they’re cool. That being said, even the best 2-door hatchbacks are not half as common as their four-door siblings. The 4 door offers more utility, so it makes sense that it is still the first choice for many.
These little autos are on the rare side, but typically come with a sportier interior. The models in this segment are vastly different from one another. We’re talking about a category that is home to both a Mini Cooper and a Ferrari, though the GTC4 Lusso bears a closer resemblance to a coupe. The fact that they have less overall space but still have a higher asking price that often drives interested parties to more affordable 5-door sedans. Still, a smaller size translates to better gas mileage.
The rarity of 2-door hatchback cars means that the models list for used models from 2019 or 2018 reads quite long. This is a positive for those who want one but are concerned with how much it’ll cost. New two-door hatchbacks are not particularly successful in 2020 anymore, however, as most shoppers in the USA are firm believers in “bigger is better”. But the athletic hatch still holds a special place in the hearts of many.
If you’re made of money, there are two Ferraris that dominate this tiny corner of the market. The GTC4 Lusso and the GTC4 Lusso T are six-figure sports cars that demand attention and are a pleasure to drive. If you’re like the rest of us who don’t have a stack of bills hidden under the mattress, options from Fiat and Mini Cooper are also top picks.
There are only a few of these to choose from, so it is worth considering the advantages and disadvantages before purchasing:
