Number of doors

5 > 3
It seems to be quite obvious that the five-door Mazda Tribute I is more usable and if you regularly travel with more than one passenger then this car is only possible option for you. The strongest point of a five-door car is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the back but it’s as well easier to put luggage and cargo into the vehicle when the rear seats are folded flat. However, three-door cars like the Mitsubishi generally look much cooler and for young drivers who don’t often have more than one passengers in the car the Mitsubishi Pajero III may be a good one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.
