You can't have everything - where would you put it?
When I picked up my 2013 WRX hatchback I thought it had plenty of space for me as I don't have a family.
Just doing solo camping trips I was limited on space. Also on long road trips I had limited space. This was with the back seats down and I have the hatchback.
No way you can fit a family and camping gear or luggage for a road trip in a WRX. I had a hard enough time just fitting all my gear for solo trips. You would need a car top carrier if anyone would be sitting in the back seats.
I ended up going with a 2014 Forester XT because of the limited space on my WRX. The engine is smaller, the car is bigger and I get better mileage. I got 18-21 in WRX and I get 24-28 in the Forester XT.

I don't need much space most of the time. I refuse to be a minivan or large SUV person. I refuse.
