There is no strict formula that defines which car fits into which category, but we intuitively know this anyway. So "compact" doesn't feel right for this car, even if its compact. Its still a sedan with 4 doors so 4-door sedan fits better.

They went all out on this thing. The roof is carbon fiber, so is the functional spoiler, the engine has an intercooler water sprayer, a wide body kit with functional aero, chassis stiffening, and stiffer track-oriented suspension. They also did a bunch of other stuff to this things engine.
