I've been searching high a low to read about the wagon, more specifically comparing the Sedan vs. Wagon. Up here in Seattle snowboarding takes over the winter and the wagon is much better suited for the gear and the dog. So does the wagon still kick @ss?

My wife wanted a Outback SW but I test drove it and almost fell asleep at the wheel. I am trying to talk her into the WRX Wagon instead (because I'll drive it 90% of the time and she can have my '00 4-Runner (it's slow!)).

Or maybe I'll trade my runner in for the STI Sedan next year!

Are they changing the headlights in 04? Is the STI going to have different headlights for 04?

Besides a narrower track width on the wagon, the wagon and sedan are essentially the same. If you're looking for more usable cargo space, the wagon is definately the way to go. A few people have mentioned that the wagon is a little more flexy around the rear strut towers since the folding rear seat doesn't offer any support. An aftermarket strut tower brace seems to remedy that problem.

My only real gripe with the Impreza wagon is that it's really more of a 5 door hatchback than a wagon. The slope of the rear glass eats into your cargo area a little bit.

I love my wagon! You lose 1 inch of track witdh only, Gain 85 lbs, But you also gain front and rear headroom. All the performance is there. If that body style suits your needs, then go for it!!! I don't see any real advantage by the sedan for daily driving. A stripped down road course monster may benefit from the wider track and 85 less lbs, but right now, I'm benefiting from the 500 dollars cheaper it is than the sedan!
