Compare hatchbacks

With ample choice on the market, we’d like to make comparing vehicles as stress-free as possible. In this guide we’ll be comparing hatchbacks that are available in New Zealand, from everyday hatchbacks to premium, performance, and more.

If you’re looking at hatchbacks, you’re likely wanting something that’s easy enough to zip around town (and park in those tight spaces), but also a vehicle that can handle a road trip with ease. Whether your criteria includes extra boot space, a hybrid option or enhanced performance, we’re sure to have your dream hatchback in your budget. As the single largest collection of automotive brands in New Zealand, we have on offer an array of award-winning hatchbacks.

Purchasing a new vehicle is an exciting and important journey, and for most people is the second most biggest purchase after a house. With such a big purchase, you naturally want to do some research. With so many different options and specs out there we understand it can get overwhelming, quickly. So, let us take you through the difference between all the models on offer as we break down fuel economy, boot space, hybrid options and more.

Have a browse below, or alternatively speak to one of our team members using the live chat function in the lower right hand corner of your screen and one of our Miles Group team will be in touch to point you in the right direction.

We understand, more than most, that you may not be ready to speak to a salesperson just yet, but our team have insights into current stock availability – including what’s here at the dealership, what’s available in the country, and what’s due to arrive on the next boat – that we’re more than happy to share with you. You can make an enquiry here.

If you know what you’re looking for, feel free to complete a test drive booking – be sure to read this handy article about what you can expect when test driving a vehicle as well.

Toyota Fuel economy: *Fuel/energy consumption, emission, and driving range figures are based on tests under controlled conditions. WLTP figures are based on converted NEDC test results and are for comparison purposes only. Actual results will vary depending on factors such as vehicle usage and operating conditions. You should not expect that the exact fuel/energy consumption, emission and driving range figures will be achieved in real world driving conditions. In order to provide you the latest model information, the specification listed is on a provisional basis and therefore may be subject to change. Please contact your local Toyota Store for more information.

Electric range: WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO₂ figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile. Figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. The most economical figures refer to the most efficient/lightest set of options. A vehicle’s actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.
