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.

No offense taken. It is an inside joke for the Crew.

I thought the sedan = sedative was funny but of course there are examples of collness but for me it really depends on the sedan to get me excited.

I mistake the Kia sedan and a couple others alot for the Focus especially from the rear.

OFFENSE TAKEN... A KIA?!

on a side note the 2014 Kia Forte sedan stole the ENTIRE rear end carbon copy right off the Focus: (thoughtless Korean bastard thiefs)

I need the hatchback because I carry more stuff than people. In fact I generally have the 40% side of the seatback folded flat for cargo.

I've managed 3 golf bags with a bag cart in the trunk and it wasn't even difficult to do. There was still room.

I'll post up a pic of me and our 3 Chihuahuas in the hatch and we closed it and still could move...very little but we could move and I'm 5'10" and 190lbs. How many bodies could you put in your trunk? I guess not an ideal car for the mob. lol
