The hatchback has additional NVH pads behind the trunk trim to absorb the road noises that could get into the cabin from the rear wheel houses (shock towers) where the sedan has the bulkhead sealing off the trunk with the seats up. Therefore it should be at least as quiet if not quieter than the sedan.
