I personally prefer sedan or coupe to hatch because the added storage area you get is minimal.
Really? My M Coupe can carry a box, a keg and all sorts of other things my 135i coupe can't even consider carrying. I would have much preferred a 5 door to the coupe. If the 5 GT wasn't so pitifully ugly, it would be a nearly ideal solution for me.

I'm not sure how well the A3 has done, for me it's too close to the GTI, yet it's had fewer updates and just seems a little dated, and a little too expensive.
