    I love both tbh, love the A3s think they are great cars, But at the time of buying mine I needed a 5 door, do I regret the SB? I think not.

    I've heard its the width not the length that does the trick

    Both win then. Though the extra reach comes in handy sometimes.

    Sportback.

    I usually prefer 3 door hatches but have always preferred the sportback over the 3 door A3. It's the rear view that does it. 3 door has a fat arse.

    I like the fact the sportback looks like a mini avant. I sometimes refer to mine as a training estate as I already plan on getting an avant next.

    You know what... I think it might just be the S3 sportback that looks better.

    What does Sportback actually 'mean'?

    At least hatchback means it's got a hatch at the back. Logic dictates the sportback has a 'sport' at the back, or 'sport' goes on in the back hence the need for the 4 doors I take it

    What about buses where theres two doors in the same frame and theres 2 sets of doors... ehhhh then including the boot door make 5 :P

    But theres also coaches which have side doors for stowing midgets and trolls (like aythree) which have 1 door usually, so in totall around 5 doors XD
