Which body style of the all-new Mazda 3 is more popular in the Philippines?

Ever since the first official photos of the all-new Mazda 3 came out, people have been raving about its design. The proof? During its first public appearance at Bonifacio High Street last month, where Mazda Philippines erected a large pavilion in the area between Krispy Kreme and Nike, people flocked to the cars on display like moths to a flame.

We asked Steven Tan, president of Berjaya Auto Philippines, the local distributor of Mazda vehicles, which body style proved to be more popular during that three-day exhibit. According to the executive, more people preferred the hatchback.

"With the previous Mazda 3, you either loved the hatchback or you hated it," Tan explained. "With the all-new model, people are torn between the hatchback and the sedan, probably because the silhouettes of the two cars look similar in spite of the different body styles."

If you were planning to buy the all-new Mazda 3, which one would you get: the hatchback or the sedan? Take the poll below.
