Number of doors
It is beyond the question that the five-door Ford is more convenient and if you regularly carry more than one people then this car is only possible option for you. The biggest advantage of a five-door car is that it’s not only easier for passengers to get into the rear seats but it’s also easier to place luggage and cargo into the car when the rear seats are folded flat. However, three-door cars like the Kia Retona generally look much cooler and for young drivers who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the Kia may be more appropriate, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.
