10 hatchbacks with biggest boots in 2024

Just because you’re looking for a hatchback, rather than a massive estate or an SUV, doesn’t mean you need to put up with a tiny boot and no space to store yours or your family’s kit and clobber. While some hatchback cars do have boots best suited for a handbag rather than a suitcase, some of the best cars with big boots are hatchbacks - and they have truly cavernous load areas with room for all the detritus that comes with family life, awkward hobbies or even just a big shopping trip.

We’ve rounded up 10 of the very best here.

Advice about hatchbacks with large boots

Best big boot hatchbacks cars FAQs

From the list above, the Skoda Octavia is very hard to beat, with 600 litres of space. That’s more room than you get even in some estate cars - an Audi A6 Avant, for example, has just 565 litres of room.

If you’re looking for a car with a more traditional ‘hatchback’ shape, rather than the Skoda’s faux-saloon silhouette, then the Vauxhall Astra is hard to beat with 422 litres, and smaller still the Renault Clio, which packs a 391-litre boot into its tiny footprint. 

Depends which hatchback and, of course, which suitcases! But even the smallest car on our list above, the Hyundai i10, should be able to accommodate three or four carry-ons or two big suitcases with all of the seats in place. 

At the other end of the spectrum, you might need to raid a Samsonite store if you want to fill up the cavernous Skoda Octavia. We reckon six pieces of hold-sized luggage would squeeze in without too much difficulty. It’s no wonder that the Octavia is so popular with minicab firms.

The Dacia Sandero is one of the cheapest cars on sale in the UK, with prices starting from less than £14,000 - yet it has a boot big enough for a small family to get all of their kit and clobber inside.
