Ive already seen that laughable explanation. In theory, every car ever made, with space for carrying anything, is a trunk car.

How about finding a true automotive explanation, not a school level dictionary explantion that has more imagination than an average Disney film.

Its not a hatchback or a trunk.

It is a rear compartment.
The panel covering the area is called the rear deck, not hatch or trunkiid.

When you go to buy parts for the car you are buying parts for the rear compartment not the trunk.

Do a search for your year car and trunk and see what comes up.

The term trunk only applies to the main cargo area. Mine has a storage area and certainly is not a hatchback.

If mine isn't a trunk, then what is it?

Rick, remove your brain for a minute.

Hatchbacks look identical to your car, trunk cars do not.

Ipso facto, your car is a hatchback, without an opening.

Subject closed, I win, end of.
