    Do you need the extra storage capacity of the hatch with the seats down?

    Not really to be honest. I just figured well the hatch is about 6 inches shorter and a little more light weight then the sedan. Figured it would help with performance and fuel economy. But I test drove a sedan and I fell in love with the way it felt. It was more of a which one looks better kinda deal.

    You can't see the outside of the car when you're driving it, only when you're outside it. Only you can answer the question but either way you'd be paying either for what you think others would like, or what you like when it's parked. I'd go hatch; a 5 door hatch is the correct body style (picture a thundering, dogmatic voice saying "I have spoken!"...). YMMV. Go sit in the back in each just to be future-proof and if you have a hobby (surfer etc.) take one with you and see what's right for you.

    I dont really have a hobby. I snowboard occasionally but not enough for it to completely influence my decision. I figure well if I wanna go boarding I will just get a roof rack and call it a day seeing that the trunk space is still pretty big in the sedan its decent. I love the way the sedan looks. But I hate the tail lights in the hatch not a fan of all the white going on. (car is going to be white with black everything else. badges(plasti-dip) black chrome, windows tinted with tail lights tinted no chrome) but I will most likely test drive both see what I like better with them parked right next to eachother and see what happens!
