honda aus had to put the seats in to meet aus standards. They are just stupid if u ask me! but they had to have them.
usually practiaclily is the best thing. kids and a 3 door coupe is not practical.
Mate, its not too meet aus standards, but to cut cost. By only having 2 seat, the tax bracket move from "hatch back/coupe" to "sport car" which increase in tax. Same thing on what they did with R35.
and I know having kids and coupe is not practical, actually having a coupe is not practical at all (with kids or no kids) if you need to use the back seat (or 3 doors hatchback in that case - Yep I still remember how I need to squeeze myself on a long journey from Sydney to GC on the back of Mazda 121 ).
To tell you the truth, I got nothing against CRZ. If they can offer a better pricing or better "identity" (e.g. have similar power to BRZ/86 but less consumption) then I think it will sell well...
