2011 Mazda2 Touring: What is it about hatchbacks?

Call me crazy, but I think hatchbacks look cooler and are more useful than their sedan brethren. I know there's no such thing as a Mazda2 Sedan, but you have to admit the Mazda3 is a more coherent design as a hatch and the new Chevrolet Sonic hatchback looks cooler than the sedan. Same goes for the Ford Fiesta. Don't you think? So why has it been (with the exception of Nissan Versa which sells at a rate of 3 hatches to 2 sedans) with U.S. car buyers that we shun hatches?
