The Legacy feels big though it is shorter than an Accord, even the previous generation Accord. I like the wagon configuration and the better fuel economy (assuming not only on paper). The price of 5-door Impreza Premium with CVT compared to the base Legacy + Alloy wheels (assuming about 2012 price) is pretty close.
One more thing to consider is the model popularity and how hard would it be to sell it. Around here (NorCal), Outback and Forester are the most popular. I rarely ever see a Legacy. I believe the 5-door Impreza will be popular too.
