The coupe-like profile isn't just for looks. The Sportback is also more aerodynamic than the SUV.

The spoiler, which sits at the base of the rear glass rather than above, helps to reduce drag.

The Sportback's drag coefficient of just 0.26 (versus the SUV's 0.28) gives it a slight range advantage.
