Hatchbacks are to a great extremely popular in Europe yet never have gotten on as strongly in the United States. Still, various European auto creators keep on spreading the seal's handy gospel to the Colonies, offering a wide assortment of three and five-entryway models went for verging on each business sector specialty — and at times, making their own. These European-reared hatchbacks tackle their Japanese and American adversaries with a style and prosper that much of the time separates them from the econo-centered models of old.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           One is The 2016 Mini Cooper hatchback might not be quite as diminutive as it once was, but it's definitely one of the most stylish subcompact cars money can buy. Available in both two- and four-door configurations, the Mini Cooper hatchback is reasonably fun to drive thanks to its lightweight design and broad stance. Base models are outfitted with a 134-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that returns an estimated 29 mpg in city driving and 39 mpg on the highway. The Cooper S graduates to a 189-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four, while the John Cooper Works model turns up the boost on the same motor to produce 228 horses. A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the Mini Cooper; a six-speed automatic is optional.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Second is The 2016 Audi A7 is a hatchback more as a matter of course than configuration. In its longing to take advantage of the "four-entryway car" furor that has cleared through European auto plan, the Audi A7's clearing roofline has made a vast seal opening that gives the moderate size auto right around 50 cubic feet of load space, which predominates that offered by any likewise valued car. The A7's base motor is a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that conveys 310 strength, while a turbodiesel unit (likewise a 3.0-liter V-6) gives 240 drive and 428 lb-ft of torque. You're getting an eight-speed programmed gearbox and all-wheel drive paying little heed to which adaptation of the Audi you arrange, however the TDI model strides up with a momentous fuel effectiveness rating of 24 mpg in city driving and 36 mpg on the highway.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Third is  The 2016 Volkswagen Golf is without a doubt the most popular European hatchback ever to have been sold in America. The Golf's combination of affordable pricing, sparkling practicality (two- and four-door versions are available with up to 52.7 cubic feet of total cargo space with the rear seats folded forward), and performance makes it a formidable opponent. GTI models push out as much as 220 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and even the base Golf's turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine produces 170 horsepower. All models can be ordered with either a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Forth is The 2016 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive offers a fuel free driving knowledge, made conceivable by a battery-controlled electric engine useful for 174 strength and 251 lb-ft of torque. The B-Class Electric Drive gets respectable speeding up off the line, alongside 87 miles of battery extent before it's an ideal opportunity to connect to. Notwithstanding carrying around its energy pack, the B-Class EV can pull up to 51.4 cubic feet of freight with the second column of lodging collapsed forward. Accessibility of the B-Class Electric Drive is presently constrained to only a modest limited to just a handful of states.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Five car is The 2016 smart fortwo has been redesigned to offer a wider, although not longer, platform for more interior room, but the European hatchback is still tiny enough to park facing the curb. The two-passenger Smart Fortwo also graduates to a new 89-horsepower three-cylinder engine that offers up 100 lb-ft of torque (significant upgrades), for the first time mated to a traditional five-speed manual transmission. A new, much-improved six-speed, dual-clutch automated manual gearbox is also offered. The Smart is somewhat frugal in daily driving, posting 33 mpg in city driving and 39 mpg during highway cruising.
