Copart Germany put together a list of the best hot hatchback cars to purchase if you’re looking for a used car for sale.

The hot hatchback is (and always has been) the ultimate vehicle for everyday people. Hatchbacks contain the perfect blend of practicality, with seating for a full family and cargo space for groceries and more. They can even look like a sports car at times, especially when they are fitted with an upgraded powertrain or handling package. Beyond that, hot hatchbacks usually stand out in the looks department as well.

Are you an auto enthusiast looking for your next hatchback car? We’ve compiled this list of the best European hot hatchbacks of the last five years to make your selection process that much easier.

Volkswagen Golf

The Golf is the most iconic and classic hot hatch on the market. It has been consistently touted as the go-to hot hatchback car since its debut in the 1970s, and it still delivers on the same promises it provided decades ago. Golf owners know that it provides the perfect blend of fun with the perks of affordability, reliability and practicality that Volkswagen carries with most of its vehicles.

Ford Focus

Speaking of classics, the Ford Focus has continued to be a top seller in the European markets throughout the years for similar reasons to the Volkswagen Golf. The reliability, style and fun-factor of this affordable family car means it’s an excellent option for those who want to have some fun while getting their groceries. The Focus and its smaller cousin, the Fiesta, share these qualities, and thus both take this spot on our list of the best hot hatchback cars.

Audi A3 Sportback

Audi has a history of providing quality, luxury and sport elements to the vehicles they sell. The rallying heritage of the Audi Quattro in the 1980s is practically mythical in the motorsports community, but fortunately there is an Audi model that can provide similar thrills to the average buyer—the A3 Sportback. Slightly larger than the base model A3, the Sportback provides one extra door in the rear and comes ready to rule the road with several options for turbo-charged engines.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Yes, Mercedes-Benz makes several hatchback models that my be slightly more luxurious and faster than the A-Class (such as the E-Class Estate), but there’s something to be said about the relative affordability and practicality that the A-Class brings. Like any Mercedes-Benz, the A-Class provides genuine comfort and luxury, and the hatchback body style takes things a step up by giving owners even more cargo space and in many drivers’ eyes, a better overall body shape.

BMW 1 Series

The 1 Series may bring something extra to this varying offer of hatchback models—real fun. While the others on this list are undoubtedly fun to drive, BMW seems to take things one step further with their cars in terms of their driving factor. For that reason, if you’re seeking a hatchback that will satisfy the itch in your brains for track-level handling, the 1 Series is an option you won’t want to overlook.
