Compact Hatchbacks at The Singapore Motorshow 2017

Chic, easy to drive, and always seemingly to say that you want to be different… slightly.

We really do love our hatchbacks, and we did stumble across some which took our fancy.

Volkswagen Golf         

Always iconic, good looking and emulated, the Volkswagen Golf has become the car to follow, among other automobile manufacturers.  

With a range of engines and body styles to suit everyone, VW has cemented their place in the industry.

The most common Mk7 models on our soil are the 1.2TSi and 1.4TSi models, mated to a quick shifting 7-speed DSG transmission.

While both models carry suspension setups which are built for comfort, they are able to provide excellent handling, with minimal understeer, thus proving to be a competent drivers car.

The 2,637mm wheelbase provides very good interior space, even for rear occupants. Cargo room for a hatch, is very good at 380 litres.

Subaru Impreza                                              

The all-new Subaru Impreza is the first model equipped with the new Subaru Global Platform architecture, which will be the platform for all future Subaru models. Doing away with the slightly boxy styling of the previous car, the new Impreza does delight with more sculpting along the front wheel arches and doors. Rear treatment has also been given refreshingly new design treatment.

Power comes from Subaru’s famous horizontally opposed 4 cylinder 1.6 litre engine, featuring all-wheel drive as standard, promising an entertaining and surefooted drive.

An auto dimming rear view mirror, auto headlamps, high beam assist, blind spot detection and a fuel saving idle stop system are just some features to look forward to.

The Impreza is also sold as a sedan option.

Mitsubishi Space Star

Actually, in a different sub-compact category, The Space Star is based on the highly successful Attrage.

The car features Bi-xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlamps with LED Type position lamps. Styling wise, a dark chrome grille, chrome fog lamp surrounds and 15” alloys adds a sporty feel to the car.

The Space Star comes equipped with keyless entry, cruise control. Additionally, automatic rain sensors and head lamps, help in creating an easier drive, as you’d not need to worry when the weather turns, or when driving through a tunnel. Steering the Space Star around town is also a breeze with its narrow 4.6m turn radius.


Powered the Space Star is Mitsubishi’s efficient 1.2 litre, 3 cylinder MIVEC engine, mated to an INVECS-III CVT transmission, delivering fuel consumption figures of just 23.3km/l.
