While true, the Legacy wagon lived a decent life in the U.S. but as the Legacy evolved, the Outback's styling was preferred to American tastes due to its SUV-ish looks even though it was essentially a lifted station wagon. I'm sure some Outback sales were taken from potential Legacy Wagon sales.

This is why I think the XV will steal sales from the Impreza hatch. It will appeal to U.S. tastes better for its SUV-ness. It probably won't kill the hatch but wouldn't be surprised if it happens.
