Neither do I; no problem at all. Funny story... I had avoided looking at the Mazda3 for years, because I imagined that it would have poor rear visibility. But it's actually very good, especially at the rear flanks which had concerns me most. The rear headrests never impede my line of vision; maybe because I keep my seat raised, in order to ensure the best possible outward field of vision.

Sedan for me. Don't like the look of hatchbacks at all, unless they're in the lift-back style (because they look like sedans ). I also have no need for the hauling of huge, awkward items. If I'm ever hauling anything, it's usually just groceries and a backpack, if that. Also, like others have mentioned, the sedan is cheaper, gives more privacy/separation from inside the cabin, is more fuel efficient and has slightly better performance.
