I've seen several women in first gen 3's, but I've not seen any second gen hatchbacks at all yet.

Funny because pretty much everyone who I see driving a 2010+ MZ3 (be it hatch or sedan) seems to be a middle aged woman. The previous gen I see younger people driving.

I bought an old lady car :( :(

From what I've seen in my area it is primarily females who drive the 4 door and males who drive the hatch. Every once in a while I see men drive the 4 door and women in the hatch but it is rare. This holds true for both gen 1 and gen 2 in charlotte, mooresville, huntersville, denver and concord, NC

Truth be told - When my wife drives she drives the 3 Hatch about 90% of the time. She does about 75 miles a day to/from school for my son and football (American football - there are no soccer mom's allowed in our house) or basketball practice. And although I am supposed to think she's hot (she is even after having our second boy 2 months ago) folks tell her she looks like a young Jaclyn Smith. So - yes there are chicks driving the new hatch here in SoCal. And they are hot.

Here in northern Illinois I see alot of women driving the 1st gen and 2nd gen mazda sedans. I have seen a total, I shit you not, two hatches and one of them was a middle aged male driving. Hatchbacks not too popular around here... not yet

Here in Dallas, hatchbacks are pretty much driven by men, and sedans by women.

You're never too old to rock'n'roll ! If somebody pre-judges me by my wheels, then they are missing out on the complete package.....:yes:

Anyone who know anything about cars can't deny a Mazda.....

+1 sedan. I like the styling of both the hatch and the sedan. I just wish they would give both engine options for both and a MS3 sedan...I guess I'll have to make one

Sedan all the way for me. In my opinion the sedan is the one that looks sporty compared to the hatch. The rear tail lights of the hatch just never done it for mr.

Just saw a woman driving the 2010 charcoal grey 3S hatch on my way to work today. I'm just glad to be seeing them on the road period.
I know what you mean. I've finally started seeing more of these around the charlotte area. I used to feel like I was the only one

Sedan, I found it to be much more sporty looking than the hatch, so agreed.
