I've driven both, somewhat briefly.
They handle and feel the same. The wagon is clearly the more practical
of the two, but the sedan is just different enough that I think the
aftermarket will favor the sedan. Eibach tells me they don't plan on
doing springs for the wagon, but will for the sedan. And yet, the head
of PR at Subaru told me that the suspensions are identical.
Drive em - the quality is definitely not up to Audi quality, but the car
has some good qualities, the first of which is price. The 1.8tq sedan I
saw at the auto show was OVER $30k.
