Then again, RSXs are more 'coupe-styled hatchbacks'. ;) I'm willing to bet there are more places in the world that would call an RSX a coupe before they'd call it a hatchback.

I think the RSX is more of a liftback than a hatchback, if people still use that word. I had a 1985 Celica before the 3, which was a liftback. It had the same lines/shape as the RSX, last generation Celica, Eclipse, etc.

As for the hatchback/wagon debate... I actually wonder why people think it's a hatchback, lol. Do you all think the Impreza Wagon is a wagon, or a hatchback?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Station_wagon
an automobile with a body style similar to a sedan but with an extended rear cargo area.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatchback
automobile design, consisting of a passenger cabin with an integrated cargo space,

the main difference is that a wagon has an extended area, otherwise essentially the same type of car.

calling a hatchback a wagon is like calling an 18-wheller a diesel... an 18-wheller is almost always a diesel but a diesel doesn’t always mean an 18-wheller

a hatchback may not always be a wagon but a wagon is almost always a hatchback

understand where I’m getting at?

I hope none of y’all get an srt4 because it isn’t a neon.

Hah, I called a tint place and this how it went

Me: can I get an estimate for 35% tint all around for a mazda 3 hatchback?
Him: a hatchback? you mean a wagon?
Me: umm no, a hatchback.
Him: never done those before.
Me: how much for a "wagon?"
Him: $220...
...

Two minutes later I call another place

Me: how much for a mazda 3 wagon?
Him: you mean a hatchback? It's not a wagon man.

DAMNIT! :-D

its not like he was rude about it or anything, - he was just the un-educated, buck-toothed, i couldn't believe he was paying for tint, hill-billy type. he did know how to stop the squeking of his poly bushings by greasing them up, but as far as him doing it , i think not.

It's a hatchwagon :lol:

I hate station wagons but love the speed3 from any angle, so whatever it is, it's done right.

(sigh) i don't even care anymore...
I used to, just because the product code is M3H-SGT-A and not M3W-SGT-A...but now, who cares?
I've had the car almost a year and nobody has ever called it a wagon, and if they did, bfd. they prolly eat wonderbread everyday, when everyone else knows it's only good for PB&J and chicken salad sandwiches. :shock:

This is an endless debate, which has many threads.... I don't really feel like searching right now so I shall just fan the flames and remind everyone here that most people are very unobservant and don't pay attention to detail or nuance. 90% of the people out there will look at generalities like this:

It is a wagon, and I don't know why people care about it being called that. Are you that insecure that you care that others call your car a wagon?

The one thing not noted from the Wiki article about hatches is:
" Some vehicles achieve this by having little car length behind the C-Pillar and thus no room for a side window over the load area."

Since the MS3 has the rear window, it is a WAGON.

At least you guys can bask in the glory of having one of the nicest looking (if not the nicest) wagons ever made, and in the case of the Mazdaspeed 3, the fastest.
