Cargo & Towing

If you're looking for cargo space, the hatchback is the better choice, as you might have guessed. Volume behind its backseat is 27.9 cu. ft., more than double the sedan's 11-cu.-ft. trunk. With its backseat folded, the hatch's cargo area expands to 66.6 cu. ft. Though a maximum measurement is characteristically not available for the sedan, its rear seats also fold forward, extending the usable cargo space.

The WRX's towing capacity is 2,000 pounds — pretty good for a car, especially of this size.
