The Impreza costs and weighs less than the Legacy. Any big tradeoffs besides back seat room, like ride comfort, noise, vibration? I am over 6'2" and the Impreza wagon drivers seat actually seems roomier than the Legacy. And how about resale value?

2005 Impreza 2.5 RS Sport
2976 lbs / 165HP@5600RPM / power-to-weight ratio 18.3
Front headroom 38.6 in / Front legroom 42.9 in.
Dlr invoice approx $16862

2005 Legacy L
3200 lbs / 168HP@5600RPM / power-to-weight ratio 19.4
Front headroom 39.5 in / Front legroom 44.1 in.
Dlr invoice approx $19678

I'd question those weights. The new legacy is made out of a lot of lightweight materials. I'm pretty sure it's lighter then the WRX, and I can't see there being a huge difference in weight between the RS & WRX.

Check out www.legacygt.com for specific info on the new legacy.
