The Mazda 3 is a fine car, don't get me wrong, but last night when one of them drove by me, I was wondering why is there no 3 door version? I know 5 doors offer more utility, but is the 3 door hatch no longer in fashion? I always though that if you want 4 doors it should have a trunk or be a station wagon. I'm not saying others won't buy it, obviously they do, but is there no place in the lineup for a 3 door?
The Focus built on the same platform is available (anywhere but here) as a 3 door. Does anyone know if the Mazda3 is available globaly as a 3 door? I'll check online and see, but I don't think so. I had read online that the Civic 3 door would not come to the US either, apparently it's going to be limited to the home market and UK.
I prefer 3 doors, they're slightly more sporty than a 4/5 door. When did they become obsolete?
