2010 VW GTI: Hatchback > Sedan

September 27, 2010

I had the choice of the GTI, Kizashi, Crosstour and Raptor on Friday, and since I usually like to give the folks with families a chance at the bigger cars on the weekend, I gladly picked the smallest of the bunch. And yet, the little two-door VW swallowed a whole heap of stuff I needed to dump off donate to Goodwill. While I know a similarly sized sedan could've also done the job, the ease of loading and unloading is quite obviously not the same as it is with a hatchback.

I know most people hate hatchbacks for some stupid reason, but as long as the car doesn't look like this, the hatchback is a superior design for a compact vehicle.
