I don't know if the hatchback owners will shed any tears over this... still looks like a Kia sedan with a big wing from the rear.

But I would shed some tears over the wagon getting bbs wheels standard. Subaru is so proud about the front pillowball bushings, when they could have given us those back in the beginning. I just got finished replacing my whole rear suspension with pillowballs. Amazing difference.

Well, at least the STI hatch looks nothing like the Rio5.

Clearly, the problem with the third-generation, hatchback-only version of Subaru's WRX STI was its excessive rear visibility and cargo capacity.
+1 Hatch anyday. Never understood why NA loves sedans so much.

Heavier. Less cargo room. Less visibility. Less sleeper. More rice. More sedan. More fail.

Wagons... they just win.

The sedan is 33 lbs. heavier; probably due to the wing. However, I'm willing to bet that the sedan has a stiffer chassis.
Oh, I thought you meant that sedans are heavier in general than hatches.

Meh, I'd rather have the hatch for the extra room. The sedan looks like a tricked out Corolla.
