    I agree with John V's comment. I also drive a H4 2.5L Outback and I get great mpg for how heavy my foot and wagon are. I agree that if this leggy comes stateside they need to make an sti trim for the legacy sedan if the impreza is going to stay 5door sti only. That way the LGT STI sedan won't steal sales away from the Impreza STi 5 door. I think dreams of a STI Leggy Wagon is still a pipe dream as long as the Impreza sti remains 5 door only. But since FHI pulled out of WRC maybe we will see some non-rally inspired Impreza's and Leggys.

    @Mark: Can't speak to the H6, but my H4 Outback gets 27 mpg on highway trips, loaded with people and stuff, which ain't too shabby for a 3850-lb station wagon. Would love to have it with Hybrid Synergy Drive, but I'll settle for this new one with a few extra interior gadgets (but not too many).

    Looks good, now throw the Toyota Hybrid Synergy drive at the H6 or even the H4, toss in some direct injection, and maybe the MPG will then be competitive and Subaru might have some winners on their hands. Otherwise, the same 'ole H6 from the early 90's isn't going to cut it in the MPG wars.

    Bring a proper B-spec wagon (2.5L Turbo, 300 hp, 6-sp stick) and then we'll talk.
