Like usual, Wiki is garbage in, garbage out, written by individuals...
Quote
The term is derives from the noun
"is derives from"? ESL maybe?

Quote
The term can apply to a sedan, coupé, liftback or hatchback configuration...

The styling term also may overlap the marketing use of the term notchback, for example where the term differentiates models within a range, for example the Chevrolet Vega Notchback (sedan) from the Vega Hatchback. The compact Ford Mustang although labeled a hardtop coupe, exhibited "long hood - short deck" notchback styling that was common on 60's compact coupes.
WTF? It can be a liftback or a coupe? The Celica, like the Vega has both. What's the difference?

Mercury Montclair that also included a rear window that could be lowered for "breezeway" ventilation.
Now THAT was a cool car!

For posterity and because I was bored and looked it up, here are the OED definitions.

coupé, n.3
b. A closed two-door motor car, usually with two seats (see also quot. 1967). Also attrib. In U.S. freq. spelt coupe and pronounced /kuːp/ .

hatchback n.
orig. N. Amer. an upward-opening rear door on a motor car (usu. giving access to storage space which can be greatly increased by folding down the rear seat); a car having such a door.

notchback n. and adj.
(a) n. a car whose rear upper bodywork extends approximately horizontally from the bottom of the rear window so as to make a distinct angle with it (cf. fast back n. at fast adj. Special uses);  (b) adj. (attrib.) designating (a car having) such rear bodywork; also in extended use.



Just posting to have it here somewhere so I don't need to ever look it up again.
