No offense intended, but that's lame. Skip to about 19 minutes into this video to see some not-so-sedate sedans:

I hate that the Chevy Cruze's are out front, but that's how it is. Ford Focus visible briefly at 20:49, 22:13, and from 34:00 to 35:00. (Maybe if the Cruzes catch fire the Fords will catch up... )

I hope that's not too far off-topic, but the video is my attempt to refute TiStick's insinuation that "sedan" = "sedative". While the performance of race cars may have no bearing on the OP's purpose of selecting a car for street use, the image of the really cool looking WTCC Focus hatchbacks could make a difference for some people. And I thought TiStick might enjoy seeing them in action even if they are behind a bunch of sedans.
