2006 Legacy wagon

Default 06-07 impreza to 08-09 questions

I am trying to decide between an 06-07 Impreza OBS or an 08-09 OBS

OBS to get wagon/hatch, and heated seats on 08-09. No later for budgetary reasons.

I understand that the 06-07 has a larger trunk (approx 60cu feet with rear seats down) VS. the 08-09 40 cu feet

I also understand the 08-09 is based on the legacy platform, and therefore has a slightly more spacious seating area, and is quieter (at least w/o the roofrack) perhaps thanks to the more aero design.

I was opposed to the new design, and disappointed in Subaru for the reduced cargo capacity, until I drove an 09 and liked it's not too shabby handling, and it seemed quieter and a bit peppier at low speeds.

I am looking for opinions from those who switched from a 06-07 (or 04,05) impreza wagon to the 08- present hatchback

I am looking for info on your experiences with cargo capacity, cabin comfort, road noise etc.

thanks in advance
