Confirmed: Chrysler 100 is a hatchback

Months ago, Allpar speculated that the Chrysler 100 would be a hatchback version of the Dodge Dart, with, most probably, other differences — no 2.0 engine option, for example, and possibly a V6 or turbocharged 2.4 engine shoe-horned into the engine bay. It now appears that the Chrysler 100 will indeed be a hatchback, as shown (according to Nick) in Las Vegas. This would provide the necessary separation from the Dodge Dart, since both are reputedly based on the US-widened Fiat C platform (CUSW) with Chrysler-modified Fiat architecture.
