Some have complained about the trunk opening. A hatchback is seen as a solution.
A hatchback does not create more room. A hatchback makes it easier to load your stuff.
However, the automated trunk is better than a hatchback. It works like this. You press a button on your key fob and a platform comes out the back end. You load your stuff on the platform and then press the fob a second time and your stuff retreats into the trunk.
Probably will not be a standard feature in the base model.
