Just like station wagons, the hatchback seems to have a bad reputation in America. Carmakers have long thought the American car buyer doesn't like hatchbacks, but recent sales figures show that's not the case anymore

It seems hatchbacks may be having a resurgence in America. Ford's new Fiesta and Focus are both offered as hatchbacks, and both are beating sales expectations. The Fiesta is selling 60/40 hatchbacks versus sedans while 41 percent of the new Focuses leaving the lot are hatchbacks.

GM has decided at this time not to bring the Chevy Cruze hatchback to America, but the new Sonic will be offered as both a sedan and hatchback. Did it miss the boat by not offering the Cruze as a hatchback as well?

So today we ask you, are hatchbacks making a comeback? Tweet us your response and make sure to include the hashtag #IsHatchBack -- and you'll join the chorus right here via CoverItLive.
