Meh. If I want an underpowered wagon/hatch, I'll just get the new Scion... or a 1zz Vibe. ;)

Just as interesting is the coming Honda Civic Hatchback.

It's simply astounding to me that after almost 40 years of excuses from the Big 3 (Ford, GM, Chrysler) about why few "Americans" wanted or would buy hatchbacks, every manufacturer has "rediscovered" 5-door hatchbacks and added models to their US lineups.

Post-modern passenger car designers have returned to the late 1950's mindset where they hope/believe that styling alone is enough to differentiate new models and sell new cars.

There is a lot of truth there: Once every new car is equally safe, starts and runs reliably for over 150K miles and 10 years without major repairs, gets 30+ mpg on the highway, and seats 5 comfortably, the next big thing differentiating one from another is exterior styling.

Chin-spoilers, recessed driving lights, super-elongated headlight enclosures, shark fin antennas, sculpted side-panels, rear-window combo-shades-spoilers, and huge alloy wheels with ultra-low profile tires seem to be on every car designer's styling checklist this week. The bleeding-edge guys are once again adding polished "chrome" trim, or blackout trim on the performance models.

My 2003 Vibe Base Auto 2-tone Salsa "SalsaWagon" was built in May 2002. I acquired it in Feb 2004/Traded it in on a 2016 Honda HR-V in Feb 2018

I like the front end of it, though I'm not sure what is is that doesn't have me completely sold.

Maybe because it still mostly looks like a sedan. I love the back end of my Vibe, it looks like a hatchback, same as a the Mazdas
