I'm done squabbling...I done made my point.However, I was thinking about the cars huntzinger listed, Firebird, Camaro which Edmunds list as a sports hatchback....They also list the corvette but I think the price puts it way out of this class.
Crash Tests....who buys a sports coupe based on a crash test? Sounds like getting married with a "Pre-Nump" I think BWM is known for safety though, the mini has 6 air bags you know. US NHST must buy the vehicle "stock" from a dealer as a blind purchase and because of the backorder, I think they are still waiting.... But in European crash tests, it did OK/Fair, it got 4/5 stars on the listing See here. http://www.euroncap.com/ratings.php3?id=superminis&order=1But you can never be too safe....
Folding rear seats does not a hatch make. Sure "every car" (almost) may have folding seats nowadays, but are you seriously trying to say that a (2003) Camry is a hatchback? If it has a trunk it isn't a hatch.
I'm not saying anything...
I was going my Edmunds list of what is a hatchback...http://edmunds.com/new/type/hatchback/all.html
Now, I think you are starting to understand what I'm saying. Go here....
Its in the hatchback category and called a hatchback. I think the hatchback category was extended a long time ago to include cars with tiny trunks that look more like a hatch. You can virtually put all sports cars in the hatchback category especially once camaro, corvette, and others are sitting in there.

Also, their trunk is a hatch (although the exact definition of that eludes me)http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/pictures/159741.jpg
How come a Camaro listed as a hatchback by Edmunds and the manufacturer and with a hatchback is not a hatchback but the Mini is? The Camero is "not" a big car, its a 2 door, mainly 2 seater with a fold back rear seat and a hatch. How do you justify kicking it out of the Hatchback category?
