The rear hatch is a lot more practical than the 2-series trunk if you want to transport something like a bicycle inside.

The best selling car segment in Southern Europe is the Polo class, one size smaller than the 1-series.

Besides, the 2-series is heavily overprized compared the 1-series for no practical reasons. It is just about exclusivity and image.
Sorry but you are confusing 5 dr FWD hatchbacks with the 1 series. Indeed the short doors are easier to open in a tight space (like my garage) but that's about the only benefit.
