    Technically speaking they will fit BUT not correctly!

    Its all down to the lenghth of the tailpipe. A coupe is a few inches longer therefore a coupe backbox will fit on a hatch but it will stick out a good few inches and just look daft. The same goes for a hatch part on a coupe - it would technically fit although it could in theory be hidden under the car!

    Exact same exhaust, except the length of the tailpipe. Estate, van, saloon and coupe share the same back box, the hatch is actually the odd one out!
