    I had an idea a while ago about a 3 door hatchback.. So I made a 3D model of one combining the coupe and 5DR hatchback. I'd drive this. Would you?

    Ehhh most people wouldn't buy it. Look at the 3 door Golf/GTI. Axed. Why? Because it doesn't sell.

    i love coupes and hatchbacks, previous car was a RSX so if honda did offer a 2 door hatch, i would definitely purchase and drive one however the market trend has totally shifted where more consumers are into crossovers :cry:

    i think the coupes dont even sell that well either but honda has always offered them regardless

    Awesome render, but I prefer the versatility of the 5 door hatch. That being said, I'd take this before a regular coupe Si.

    Definitely! I love Coupes and Hatchbacks so a 3 door Hatchback would've been so sweet.
    Like I said I wanted the Coupe when it first came out but I love Hatchbacks even more but I guess Honda think so.

    A few years ago I almost bought a 3 door VW GTI but like Honda back then I found them bland though Honda stepped up more than VW hence why I went with it.

    Yeah unfortunately the target demographic (single, 20 something apartment dwellers) of 3-door hatches and coupes just don't have the money to buy new cars.

    The people that do have the money to buy new cars want their money's worth and are looking for practicality, utility and long term. 2 doors, even 2 door hatches hurt practicality to a degree.

    I love my EP3 and have hauled quite a bit of stuff so it has the utility; but when it comes to putting things/people in the back seat it completely sucks. It's a small detail but after a while when you have to move the front seats enough you realize just how annoying a 2-door really is. Personally I could never buy another 2-door unless as a second/weekend car.

    I'm still upset that the 4 door hatch is not coming with Si flavor, so I went and picked up a Sport Manual. Maybe in the future I'll tune it and get some of that Si flavor into my sport..

    haha, I'll be putting red honda badges, but not any other badging, I like the clean look, I just wanted the Si upgrades.

    Looks awesome! Would make it the best of the four-car lineup, IMO.

    Though I do agree with the rational thinkers here that it wouldn't be worth it for Honda to do, sales-wise.

    Fair enough, I wish 2Doors did sell more so this might have been an available model..

    I don't think it looks right needs a shorter wheel base, or maybe just some of the nose trimmed off.

    It's made to the same dimensions as the 5 DR and 2DR..

    Granted in the past the civic did have a shorter wheel base for the 2DRs

    +1, would definitely get that.

    Don't understand why the coupes aren't just all "coupe-hatchback" types anyway... Is rigidity harder to achieve, or is there some other legit/mechanical reason, or is it all just a stylistic choice? Maybe some slightly-better aerodynamics with a slimmer back, but probably not by very much? The 'hatch' version would have much more room for the back passengers + more cargo space for pretty much the same "price"/manufacturing effort... AND it looks better IMO.
