Goldstein Subaru in Albany is a solid dealer, so if you cannot find it in Hartford consider Albany (no, I don't work there).
That being said the Crosstrek is a little taller and heavier with the same engine. To me that spells even more underpowered, perfect if you need to drive offroad but overkill for typical commuting.
The Impreza Sport isn't a power king, but it is a nice car.
But who are we kidding, your wife will want to buy one or the other based upon the color and how it feels to her, so let her decide.
