What are you talking about? So you can buy two cars instead of one? Some people will never need two vehicles much less a truck that can haul whatever. Hatches and wagons offer versatility that is multifunctional. My hatch has served me well and provided loading capacity that would be more difficult to do in a sedan. Sure there are compromises and won't appeal to everyone but it fits many lifestyles. It has nothing to do being a U.S. American.
