Hatch. Looks and I like the added weight in the back. But the coupes with the silvia front are hot sex.

As much as I favored coupes the last time a coupe vs. hatch thread came up, I'm going to have to say hatch...

Hatch has slightly less blind spots compared to the coupe, since it doesn't have massive C-pillars, its more aerodynamic, and it can hold more of your shiznat

prefer the coupes, i like the body lines a bit better and hatchs in general on all cars just look out dated...

hatch=probe
coupe=sekz

also i believe the coupe has more structural rigidity as well... which would make it better for most auto sports... who cares about "blind spots".... the car is small enough not to have to worry about it, i have a 96 tahoe 2dr, nothing but windows and i can barely see out the back of that thing....

just something about the coupe look on those S13s.... if didn't get my S14, i would have gotten an S13 coupe, do a silvia swap, and SR and be done.... nothing but sekz... maybe some decent aero and wheels

IMO.... i prefer the S14 over both.... but that's my preference

"Once you go coupe, hatchback is poop."

I have a coupe and I honestly like it much better than the hatches I've been around... I prefer the style over the hatch, regardless of trunk size difference. But, that's just one man's opinion.
