2016 Chevrolet Volt: High Liftover Height
by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on December 25, 2015
Yes, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt is a hatchback. Yes, consequently it has a more versatile cargo area than a compact sedan. Unfortunately, unlike other hatchbacks, the Volt has a significant liftover height. One must hoist whatever up and over the bumper and then lower it onto the cargo floor.
In a way, it's almost more like an old-school hatchback (hmm, if only we had one of those around) than the truncated wagons modern hatches have become.
