I wouldn't imagine it weighs marginally much more. Pro's to a ZX5 would be if you regularly carry more than 1 other person or have a child. Which is better to own is strictly based on your personal needs and tastes.

Don't quote me but I think I've heard there is around 100lb difference... pros= easier to get in the back seat area, cons= doesn't look as good with lambo doors. :)

Yeah if you carry alot of people or have a child, the five door. If you dont, I'd say the three door just because it looks a bit cooler (in my opinion) and has a more sporty-coupish flare.

I prefer the looks of the 5 door because it makes the car look longer and sleeker. To me the 3 door looks really short and tall.

I think Scrammer is right on that figure.

I wish mine was a 5 door. The only downside is that would complete the whole "lowered minivan with rims and a bodykit" look that the Focus already has

The 5 door styling seems like it had a little less of the New Edge styling, but I've seen some 5 doors I liked. For purely aesthetics, I like the 3 door better. Everything else, the 5 door would be convenient.

Course, the best Focus ever would have to be a D23 5 speed wagon. I cant imagine there were more than a handful ever made though.
