    Hatch v. G4 handling?

    Has anyone tested both the 17 hatch and G4? Is there any difference in response or handling with the G4 compared to the hatch? I've seen G4's in my area but they are rental units from enterprise. I could go and test drive one and compare but I thought why not discuss here. I saw some new G4's manuals in the 10 grand range my family started asking me questions about the sedan the biggest turn off no folding rear seats.

    I have tested both. I think the sedan feels better balanced...perhaps due to weight distribution? It is a few lbs heaveier but it felt good.

    I agree, it does and its because the wheelbase. Its 5 inches longer.

    Well I got to test my G4 SE Handling limits today and it was a true test. I was on Interstate 68 doing about 65 when 2 Turkeys walked on the Interstate and the cR ahead a me swerved into my lane. I had to brake hard and swere on to shoulder to stop from rear ending him them the Turkeys ran back in front of my car and I had to swerve the other way. I do think I felt the stability control working a few times and I sont know how I missed the Turkeys. But put it this way I was impressed with how my G4 handled that manuver as I did not think the Mirage and Mirage G4 would do that well at high speeds in an accident avoidence manuver and it proved me wrong.
