A hatchback is a type of car which has both a sloped back and a rear door that swings upwards when opened. Hatchbacks tend to have some common features, such as a shared passenger and cargo area, but the definition of “hatchback” depends only on the sloped back and the rear door. Station wagons, sport utility vehicles, and minivans are different than hatchbacks because their rear sections are mostly vertical (instead of being sloped).
