Ventilated brakes?

Did a search and didn't find anything.

Does my hatch have ventilated disc brakes? I don't see any "ventilation" in any of the brakes.

Hey, thx for the clear explanation. I did understand the purpose of ventilated brakes, I just couldn't see the physical passages/vents on the front brakes. Aren't they supposed to be some holes in the front discs? They seem to be solid to me.

But anyways.. I just need a confirmation that they are indeed ventilated brakes, so thx for confirming.
OK, I did some research and I think I was confusing ventilated and cross-drilled discs.

Now I know what they look like, and yes, my hatch does have front ventilated discs. :D
