Post more WRX sedan vs wagon differences

Just got 2/01 Evo magazine today & it reviews the WRX Sport Wagon. They found that although its steering feels sharper on lock compared to the sedan, ultimate grip is less due to the narrower track (no hard numbers though). Subaru claims the wagon will run 0-60 in 5.9 (this is the 215 hp British model) while Evo clocked the sedan at 6.0. Also, top speed of the wagon is only 140 mph, down 3 from the sedan.

Wish we would get those 17" wheels they get over there though.

Where'd you see that? I think the CDN 17's are the BBS's.

Sorry, I meant the 17" 5 split-spoke rims that we have seen on the Euro & Jap-spec WRX's, not the 17" BBSes seen on some US-spec press cars.

But don't be fo-get-in... 18s will low-ah yo timez-ah if youz dont gots da pow-ah to backs it up.

Road and track did an excellent piece about... 2 years ago? Maybe?... On "Is bigger really better?" and did a comparison of 16s, 17s and 18 inch RIMs on a 540i 6-Speed and didn't tell the driver which rims he was on (to prevent bias). Result? The 17" actually performed the best out of the 3.

Choose yo weapon wisely.

The Evo article was a good one. The wagon was black, with the 215/40R17 tyres.

They stated that the car felt slightly less urgent than the sedan, but more balanced due to the better weight distribution.

Yeah, after seeing the black wagon in those pics, I'm having second thoughts about the Rally Blue. Really wish we could get those rims here...
