I'd rather have either the 5 door hatch like I've got (not an ST though), or the 5 door Estate version. The 3 door hatch was such a success in the last generation in Europe that they didn't bother developing its sucessor. I.e. even in Europe the home of the small fast car they weren't selling in sufficient quantities to justify the expenditure for tooling and design for the smaller 3 door version in a car the size of a Focus. A fiesta 3 door OTOH does exist and sells fine there, but its a compact supermini class vehicle over there.
