Hatchbacks with the biggest boots

The average family hatchback has a boot that’s around 400 litres in size: a good space for a weekly shop and a child’s buggy, for example.

But if you regularly load up with bulky items, or simply want a bit more flexibility, you can find a hatchback with a boot that’s substantially larger. Scroll down for some of the largest.

Skoda Octavia

The Skoda Octavia’s 590-litre boot wouldn’t disgrace some estate cars and is bigger than you’ll find in many tall and boxy sport utility vehicles (SUVs). It’s also attached to a spacious family car that’s comfortable, quiet and excellent value for money. It’s a formula that’s hard to beat.

Peugeot 308

The 470-litre boot in the Peugeot 308 is some way off what you’ll find in the Skoda Octavia, but that’s the case for every other family hatchback. It’s still far in excess of the class average, and can expand to 1,185 litres if you fold the rear seats.

However, unlike the Octavia, the Peugeot’s boot has been enlarged by squeezing rear passenger room, making the back seats cramped for adults.

Hyundai i30 Fastback

It’s no surprise that the boot in the Hyundai i30 Fastback is vast, because the car is based on the spacious Hyundai i30 hatchback - but with a bigger boot. The 450-litre space can accommodate plenty of luggage and even when loaded up, it feels more agile than the standard hatchback.

Fiat Tipo

Fiat’s Tipo doesn’t stand out with cutting-edge technology or distinctive design. Instead, it’s focused on offering great value and practicality. That extends to the back of the car, where the 440-litre boot will accommodate luggage with ease.
