You look so clear!

Yes, you are right to find that most Chinese want to buy a 3 box sedan than a 2 box one.

I will buy a 3 box seden too if I will purchase a new car for myself. It's common idea that the car is like the clothes you wear, not only for keeping warm, but more to show your beauty or your status.

Car is not a usual transportation tool for most Chinese family, so car would be act  as property to flaunt the owner's status. Maybe that's ture.

But how about this in your region? I'd like to know :-)

not universal

it is not universal for  Chinese to flaunt or show off their success or social status, coz there is a long tradition behind culture made up  with modesty or being low-pitched.
