For me Wagon, practicality. I can fit my mt. bike in it....or two plus friend. I can sleep in the back. I can carry a but load of parts for the shop. It doesn't look fast so I rarely get pulled over by cops, they just wave me to slow down...I think it looks cool...it surprises people when I outhandle them on the curvies....

But I don't claim it is the best....to each their own. I do miss not having a locking trunk.

With a Sedan you can pack your truck full and still see out the back window. Also things are more secure in the back.

wagon. i just got done with a trip to MA... i had a pickup truck's TOOLBOX ( ) in back, along with my mountain bike, a medium sized suitcase, a pair of sneakers, a pair of boots, my two pillows, tripod, small cooler, helmet for bike... nothing was higher than the very bottom of the window. i also made $225 dollars by selling the toolbox. i'm currently debating on whether that will be tint, or a sway bar and save the rest towards tint. PM me if you have an opinion on the tint/sway question (anyone)

Right now I like sedans better. But I like the Impreza wagons, I used to have one.

Wagon for sure. Cops dont notice you, little hondas dont expect you, insurance is cheaper and then lines look a lot better on the wagon than they do on the sedan. Lots more aftermarket stuff for the wagon too.

Wagon of course. Thats why I passed up on the many sedans that came my way.

The wagon doesn't get noticed by cops (in the last two weeks I've been doing 10 over in various places and been radar'd by 3 cops with no results). I can chuck all my junk in the back and go where I need to (especially useful for moving into/out of dorm rooms, big space inside and a tie down rack up top). I can open the hatch and hop into the back and just chill outside listening to music.

Oh, and the looks I get from people when my snorkesectomy roar goes by them and they see its a wagon. Its classic. Oh yeah, and full coverage for insurance is only $85 a month, and I'm still a teenager.

Reading alot of reviews from car magazines, they say the wagons also have a better balance/cornering feel and quality compared to the sedans. A couple said it was just a universal feel between the imprezas and legacies no matter the year, that the wagon just felt better.

I love my wagon!

Wagon. I do kinda march to the beat of a different drummer... I've always loved wagons/hatchbacks.

Personally I am a fan of the wagon. For me, there is something about the styling and additional utility that does it for me. This has all been mentioned before, but the wagon just feels right for me.
