One thing I love about owning a coupe/hatchback is the long ass doors. for two reasons
1 it's easier to get in and out of. and it's easier to jump though the window Nascar style, which is important.
2 the B pillar is behind my peripheral vision.
Also the are needed to get access to the rear seats.
Now car like the RX8, Ion, and Element have their fancy butterfly doors, that are supped to get more access to the rear seats. But I'd rather just have one long door. I never even thought about this until just now when searching CL for a RX8s and noticing how noticeably short the front doors are.
That said I still want one.
