What are advantages of hatchback cars?

It's been more than a decade to the production of hatchback cars. Earlier, they were only made to satisfy the basic needs of a car but now they are available with different forms of innovative designs. The new hatchback cars in the market are exciting, safer, luxurious, economical and more enjoyable to drive.

At present every country faces issues of prolonged traffic jams, scarce car parking space, crowded streets and too much of vehicles on the road.

Handling masses of vehicles especially huge cars like a sedan car, or a sport utility vehicle (SUV) is not only difficult but highly risky too. Thanks to the manufacturer of hatchback cars, people are able to have an easy driving experience.  Being shorter than a standard car, a hatchback car is convenient in many ways. It has a comfortable passenger space and putting down the rear seat for an ample boot space. A hatchback is best defined as a body style of a car, meant for both passenger and cargo, and which can be accessible from the behind of the car also, through the lift door provided.

In yesteryears, a hatchback was quite appreciated by women as it has a few rear extensions, provides a better surrounding view, and that its small size makes it easy for them to park it in smaller parking spaces. Later the compact sizes attracted men also, specially frequent travelers,  as it allows easy passing through smaller gaps in a traffic jam as it has a small turning radius, and that it saves fuel too, due to its compact size. Consequently, the sales of these cars started growing. Being a speedy car these are also maneuverable thus ease the hassle of driving in traffic jams in metropolitan cities.

The cars are small, have less engine capacity, consume lesser fuel and this provide better mileage. These cars are available with less prices than the sedan and other mid-size cars. Hatchback cars come equipped with a wide range of features, accessories and luxuries. Some other advantages of a hatchback is that hatchback cars have less insurance duties and taxes, and they suit all – young to adult in terms of price, overhead costs, and ease of driving.

Hatchback cars can be considered as a perfect choice for Urban Areas as its affordable, uses less fuel and cost less when it comes to maintenance.


Disadvantages of CVT Transmission 

Vehicles with CV transmission have advantages but there are a few CVT disadvantages, too, which might bother you while driving the CVT transmission car. Vehicles with CVT transmission have the following problems, or you may experience these problems, if you are accustomed to driving cars with traditional transmission system.

1. Some cars with CVT transmission produce some noise when you accelerate.

2. User acceptance. While driving vehicles with CVT transmission, you get a feel like of a slipping clutch or as though the car is only accelerating and not shifting up the gear proportional to the speed. This is normal to CVT cars, and comfortable as well. but some people do not like this way how engine accelerates.

3. Due to unlimited gear ratios, you don't experience high RPM at most times because CVT always keeps the RPM at the lowest. It gives feeling sometimes that the engine is not powerful or you may even feel that the car is not accelerating.  That's an advantage really because you don't feel high noises of the engine because it is always at the lowest RPM possible.

These were the disadvantages of CVT transmission. You will also like to read about the Advantages of CVT Transmission.

9. Airbus A333-300

This airplane can carry 277 passengers and its other model can carry 440 passengers.

10. Airbus A340-300

The last on the list of largest airplanes by passenger capacity is A333-300.This aircraft can carry 267 passengers and its other model can carry 295.

As you can see that even the last one in the list of largest aircrafts by seating capacity can carry a huge number of passengers (295). Imaging how big the A380 is, which carries 853 passengers! It would definitely be a great experience boarding this plane and even the others that are mentioned in the list. Traveling in airplane, especially if it is huge, spacious is very joyful.

CVT Introduction

Before I move on to the CVT transmission (Continuously Vehicle Transmission) advantages, let us first learn what CVT system is and how it differs from traditional automatic transmissions.

In traditional transmissions, only a few no. of ratios provided by the gear, whereas in CVT transmissions, unlimited ratios of gear are provided. When the car cruises, the gears are automatically shifted up or down to infinite number of ratios. And depending on the car load, and whether the car is going downhill or uphill, the CVT transmission automatically adjusts and maintains a gear to provide maximum acceleration as well as fuel economy.

Advantages of CVT Transmission 

Vehicles with CVT transmission offer a very good and smooth drive. More and more cars are being built with CVT transmission systems, because of the advantages of the CVT transmission. The following are advantages of the CVT transmission:

1. Since the gear shifts up earlier, you get better fuel economy.

2. While driving, during gear shifting you do not hear a sound or get a slight jerk-feeling like you do in conventional  automatic transmission cars.

3. You get improved driving performance, better acceleration.

4. The unlimited gear ratios help in maintaining a steady drive and cruising speed.

5. CVT transmissions can vary the engine speed as needed to obtain maximum power and maximum fuel efficiency. And this is the best advantage you get from the CVT transmission installed cars!

These were advantages of CVT transmission. Which auto transmission do you like, CVT or conventional? Comment below, letting us know what do you think.
