Wink Hatchbacks are roomy :) Or am I the only one...

Well in order to avoid trying to sidestep what I'm saying by using wildly broad phrases, I'll just go ahead and ask:
Have you ever knocked boots in the back of your focus (especially hatchbacks)????
I find that with a little creativity the backseats can be rather "accomodating" for you and a significant other which is suprising in an otherwise little car.
Or am I the only one that has done this or even thought about it??
I hope this doesn't get flagged for being innapropriate or whatever, I think its a pretty fair and honest question...

Well you could always put the rear seats into cargo mode and take the hatch cover off, throw some pillows in there and you have yourself a cozy lounge area. Great for camping or tail-gating/getting [bootyshak. Just don't forget the tint

i would imagine the hatch being far more comfortable than the sedan.

Yeah, no room in the Sedan. I can hardly fit passengers in the back!
That's why I have a king size bed here. w00t w00t@!

By the way "knocking boots" is the best expression I've ever heard! LOL

As a previous Sedan owner and a CURRENT Hatch owner, as far as privacy the sedan wins. Let the seats back and stretch out into the trunk and you have the bottom half of you covered, down fall of the sedan is the hole is a little short and you'll end up scraping your back/butt a few times.

Hatch wins on comfort due too the extra upward space but with the large windows I really hope your in a excluded area as to not get busted in the act.

All in all the versatility of the sedan would be my pick, seats up with windows down or seats down and a more "personal" experience.

BTW Keep this PG-13, I will be watching closely!

if im not mistaken, doesnt the hatch and sedan have the same rear seats and seat room.

that being said, there is lots of room for knocking boots in the back seat. girl straddling is the best/easiest position. it was a great b-day present for me, very memorable.

The 2 door has more rear seating space than the 4/5 doors, head room and leg room.

I found if you sort of wedge the girl between the passenger and drivers seats and attack from the back it works wonders. Also must try some of the other ideas aforementioned :)
