Realizing that they lacked a small notchback sedan, Volkswagen decided that the best way to create one was to simply slap a trunk on its existing Golf/Rabbit hatchback.


Actually, Volkswagen had a small nothcback sedan way back in the early 1960's. It's the rarely seen Type 3 Notchback.

Most Type 3's sold in this country were Squarebacks and Fastbacks... or at least those are the ones I've seen.
