I'd just like to add that based on the launch powerpoint of the 2012 Impreza in NYC, the sedan has a drag coef of 0.306 and the hatch has a drag coef of 0.329. Regardless of what the EPA says, the drag coefficients provide a better indicator of fuel economy at highway speeds. Of course, drag becomes exponentially more important as speed increases; the sedan may have an easier time achieving the EPA highway mileage than the 5-door.
