God I wish they'd sold TVRs here (newer ones). I'd kill 15 babies and 19 elderly for a Sagaris!
Oh, and I do like the new XK...

I donno guys :| but the model we have here in Egypt is a rear engined RWD, I've driven one it's very very light, especially from the front.
Could it be a 126? That one's rear-engined and rear-wheel drive, and a bit smaller.

Not this, this is a coup?:



But whatever. Another pointless thread - feel free.
"Hatchback is a term designating an automobile design, containing a passenger cabin with an integrated cargo space, accessed from behind the vehicle by a single, top-hinged tailgate or large flip-up window."

Trunk is connected with seating area, there is no solid divider in between. If you can open up the trunk and throw something onto the seat through the trunk opening, then it's a hatchback.

In other words, if the rear window lifts up with the trunk lid, it's a hatchback. if the rear window stays stationary, it's a sedan or a coupe.

I can get to the back of mine from the front seats, and it's RWD primarily. :D

Vauxhall Chevette too.

"Introduction of the Chevette 3-door Hatchback in Base and L model variations. Both had an improved version of the 1256 cc OHV engine from the Viva, with a similar 4-speed gearbox, rear wheel drive, independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and servo-assisted dual circuit brakes. Initial standard equipment included two-speed heater fan, radial tyres, reversing lights, heated rear window and reclining front seats."

Opel monza:


EDIT:
Also, the Ford Scorpio MK.1 was available as a hatchback, but some might still refer to it as a 4-door saloon:

The Scorpio MK2 was the Granada here, which was essentially a tarted up Sierra. This could get confusing, because cars like the Granada have had lots of different versions.

If life were like a terrible romantic comedy, Spectre and Ian Callum would fall in love.

Just type Ford Granada Scorpio, which is the name it is commonly referred to as online. Oh yeah, and the Scorpio was not really a "tarted up Sierra" granted, quite a few parts are interchangeable, but overall they are 2 completely different cars.
