    WRX Wagon vs. sedan ?

    I've always driven some type of wagon, and like the extra space,
    but alas, i'm going thru my second childhood now, and want something
    fast and fun to drive.

    Will the WRX wagon drive alot different than the sedan?

    I think i have about 18K to buy a used one, and know that won't get me much,
    but just looking...

    Don't really want a maintenance hog either...
    good forum, thanks

    They don't really drive differently. Just a difference in noises heard inside the cabin, really. Any performance differences are so small they would be negligible.

    Are you meaning more noise in the hatchback?? I'm guessing more exhaust drone in particular.

    Yes, anecdotal evidence suggests that exhaust noise and exhaust drone are louder/worse in the hatch.

    I own a 2006 WRX wagon and wish I had a sedan. Why? It looks better IMO and has a slightly wider track.

    However, having a fast station wagon is very fun. The exhaust is louder in a wagon no doubt, as is road noise I believe...go drive both and make your own judgments.

    I rode in a few of each before buying mine but after sitting in the back of the wagon the extra bit of room is nice if you're taking people and being able to fold down the seats is a big plus. the exhaust is for sure louder but i think road noise is about the same IMO

    What years are you talking about because the backseat foot print on 2008+ be it a sedan or hatch is the same. You could haul a bulkier item better in the hatch obviously with the back seats down, but more smaller items like groceries and such in the trunk of the sedan with the seats up because the floor area in the trunk is longer.
