Test drove a 4door 180, bought a 5door 120, so most differences will be associated with the power differences.

One difference that I did notice though is when cornering. The back end of the 4door feels somehow 'heavier'. Can't really be more specific. Could be due to the 4door being slightly longer, or maybe the 5door body flex's a little more due to the hatchback.

Hatchback

I agree, I drove the hatchback version when I test drove mine.
I think you lose quite allot of the rigidity when you make a hatchback.

Thats quite a large part of the roof sections strength removed. When you think about it, as it sits right over the rear wheels.
