I think they both look great, especially that wagon. The sedan looks like it might be a bit of a slave to style, with a tighter back seat than other cars with conventional roof lines. Not to mention...

Or buy a trailer to tow it on, but then again that's a lot of $$$$ and more weight you're dragging behind an already loaded down vehicle.

I could maybe forgive the sin of a twin turbo inline six instead of a V8. I simply love the sound and inherent smoothness with an inline six engine. The 2JZ-GE(no turbos) in my SC300 is just insanely...

Subarus are so ugly though. The new WRX doesn't even look like a WRX, more like a Toyota Corolla clone. Still they're a fun car to drive, practical, and it would be a new car with a warranty.
