    VX just don't refer to it as a 3dr - they have branded it "sport hatch" instead (even tho it has got 3 doors).

    Very much in the same way that Sten could rightly be re-branded "pedantic git" :lo:

    totally agree, saw a nice black one yesterday - considerably nicer looking than the 5 door imo.

    Its called a sports hatch because its not actually a 3-door version of the 5-door. It runs a completely different chassis to the 5-door and doesnt actually share any of the same body panels either.......noticed Renault are doing a similar thing as well.
