Personally, I love the rear end of the sedan, but think that it is a bit too boxy for the rounder front end. I felt that the hatch styling tied in with the front styling slightly better. When I see a front one shot of a 2008+ WRX or STI, I always just mentally assume that it is a hatch based on the shape of the front. Plus the added utility is nice. I think if the front end was slightly boxier it would have been a much tougher decision.
