I have been meaning to post about this for a while now. Having changed from a hatch to a saloon the first thing i noticed (apart from the seemingly smaller boot, before someone says it) was the increase in rear visibilty. I dont mean in the rear view mirror but when looking over your shoulder. I dont know why, as i sort of expected the opposite (with that big chunk of metal where the rear quarter panel should be) but i'm not imagining it (i think). In my eyes this is one big plus for the saloon over the hatch as i always thought the rear vis in the hatch left a lot to be desired.
For those of you driving the hatch i know you will think i'm talking through my a**e but take a spin in a saloon and see what i mean. You WILL be surprised!!!
Anyway i'm about to put an end to this as i'm getting rear tints so thats all that extra visibility gone
