I've always felt guilty making my friends who aren't as flexible as I am climb in the back. 4 door in my future.
Its all about your preference honestly!
I know I'm the kind of guy that doesn't like having a lot of people in my car (especially when I'm going to be lowered) so having 2DRs is more of an excuse not to take people in your car. However the room in the rear seats is huge for a hatchback, even for myself and I'm 6'2 215lbs lol
And also for the difference in weight, from what I have heard (may or not be true have not looked into it) but 2drs are actually heavier then 4drs because the steel used to make the. 2drs is a lot heavier
I have a 4 door, and have never regretted that decision.
I frequently have to fill the back with stuff, and the side access is a real advantage.
One nice thing about the 4 door is the front doors are shorter, so you don't need as much space on the sides to open them wide enough to get in and out comfortably. With my previous car (a 2 door MKIV), I was constantly scuffing the lower door panel with my oversize feet.
