What is a hatchback car?

Hatchbacks are defined by a boot lid that is hinged at the top of the roof, as opposed to the traditional boots that used to open from the middle and out towards the side. BMW Hatchbacks are well known for having near perfect weight distribution. They also feature rear wheel drive and a clever use of space, delivering the best driving experience possible.

The best example of the iconic design is the BMW 1 Series 3-door, which feels like a much larger car inside but still has the pinpoint handling of a car its size.
