Default what is the difference between saden and wagon?

Hi. i am thinking about buying wrx.
other than outlook, what is the performance difference between saden and wagon?
i heard that sedan has better cornering and faster.
it is true? if it is true, how fast is it???

i saw that 0-60 for saden is about 5.7s and 6.8 seconds for wagon from car-state.com

however, personally i prefer wagon because it looks more useful other than joyful ride ^^

I believe the performance between the WRX Sedan and Wagon are identical.

Wagon = more storage space.
Wagon = you can meet more girls because they are cooler.
Wagon = just plain coolness. Get the wagon.

Wagon = better weight distribution.

You'd probably be hard pressed to notice any significant performance difference between the sedan and wagon. If you like the wagon better, get the wagon.

The wagon is about 80 pounds heavier. When I read SCC maginze, the editor say the wagon is more tail happy than the Sedan. I don't know how a narrow track will affect the handling. Can someone explain the effects of track wide on the car?

Default wide/narrow track

Do this...

1. Stand up and put you feet together.

Do you feel stable if someone was to push you?

2. Stand up and put your feet 2-3 feet apart.

Do you feel more stable now? You should.

This illustrates narrow and wide track. The WRX Sedan has it's wheels spread apart slightly wider than the Wagon, thus making it marginally more stable. Kinda dumb in my opinion -- since the Wagon is going to carry more crap (more weight), it should have the wider track, not the sedan.

I think it's a design issue. The wagon with bigger flares look kinda gimp. I like the wagon for the sole reason that the back seat can be folded down. I'm used to a minivan so I want a WRX wagon as my next car. Also you can sleep in the car or have a girl or guy (don't know which way you swing) in the back. Oh and it's good for pets too.
