If you're looking for a vehicle that can comfortably seat four adults, is roomy enough to fit a lot of cargo, and fuel efficient enough to keep you from going broke at the pump we've got one word for you: Hatchback. The hatchback combines the utility of a station wagon or small crossover with the fuel economy of a compact car. Even better, hatchbacks can also be had at a reasonable price, and as an added bonus they're often more fun to drive than the typical sedan. We handpicked 10 used hatchbacks under $10,000 that could be just what you're looking for in a used car.

2005 Mazda6

2005 Mazda6

Mileage: 97,598
Price: $7,991
If You Bought It New: $22,095
Engine: 3.0-liter V6, 220 horsepower
JD Power Dependability Rating: 2.5

Selling Points: The Mazda6 hatchback is real sleeper in that it doesn't look much like a standard hatchback and few car buyers even know it exists. Mazda didn't sell many of them, but they're still as much fun to drive as the sedan. With plenty of additional utility, the hatchback is the one to get.

Mileage: 62,267
Price: $9,994
If You Bought It New: $18,245
Engine: 2.5-liter boxer four cylinder, 165 horsepower
JD Power Dependability Rating: 3
