Hey

I was jus wonderin how the sedan differed from the 5-door. Aside from the obvious trunk and lack thereof. Will the 5-door look surprisingly different from the sedan from the outside? Also I heard they will have a sport edition of the 6 coming out...does n e 1 know when that will be released. O...1 last ? what will be the price of the sedan. Both the i4 and the v6.

Thanks

Just to clarify, the sport edition is the hatch 5 door you are talking about. It's the yellow car in all the pictures. Yellow is only available on the sport hatch. Most other pictures are blue for sedan and red for wagon.

Besides the hatch it has a trunk per se, but not the same. Just like any hatch. The sport will probably offer a few features not available on the sedan but for all intensive purposes they are the in features and such. Prices you can compare to what the UK is paying or Japan is paying, but that doesn't set the price in stone.

Estimated Road Price in UK
Sedan
1.8TS £14,495 (22,175USD)

Hmmm

It seems pricey in England. So do you have any idea what the price will be in the Unted States?...Also about the differene between the sedan and 5-door...do they look noticeably dissimilar from each other, in outward appearance. I'm hoping the price starts around 18500 for the base model...so I can get some upgrades and such like a spoiler or jus get the sport 5-door. The thing is I want it before september 2002, and I've heard that the sport will not be released til jan 2003...I cant wait. O...well.

Thanks

The Sport might not be released until well after January 2003......we will all have a much better idea of things once we get closer to the release of the Sedan 6.....

The 5-door (called "Sport" here in Europe) has a handy, langer 5th-door. . The five-door features because of that of an excellent load area, while the un-usual folding seat mechanism, christened "Karakuri" by Mazda, ensures it is one of the most flexible and easy to use on the market. You simply pull a lever in the boot, and the rear seat auto- matically drops to give a flat boot floor. Like on the picture.

There's a similar folding system in the sedan - note the handle just beneath the hinges. The sedan also has a stiffer body because of the large metal beam connecting the supports for rear suspension.

What are the two black straps on the the side of the trunk just behind the wheel well?

Also, it's good to see the trunk hinges in the drip well...a much better design.

I think the straps are for fastening something that you have to drag along all the time, e.g. fire extinguisher. There are straps on the other side as well. Spare tire, jack etc. are nicely fitted in compartments under the carpet.
