    I'm looking into possibly buying an 05 to 07 WRX sedan or wagon. I had
    wanted a wagon for utility, but I like the look of the sedan more. The
    real need for utility is to transport five gallon buckets. I often
    need to transport four of the five gallon buckets at a time. If this
    woudl fit in the back of a sedan, then it's a winner. I've got
    legacies, which have much more cargo area room, adn the forester/
    impreza cargo area seemed small to me the last time I looked at one.
    The real question though is:Is it big enough for those buckets?

    Anyone know?

    Checking the cargo area of my 2005 Impreza WRX sedan, I find that I can
    easily fit four five-gallon buckets with lids. Five would fit a bit
    more tightly and I think I could even squeeze in six buckets with a
    little bit of manuevering.

    Of course, the Forester has much more cargo space because the rear seat
    back can be folder down almost completely flat. I recently carried
    eight thirty-gallon bags of leaves to out community composting
    operation in my wife's 2007 Forester; that's 240 gallons of volums, or
    the equivalent of four fifty-five-gallon drums.

    The Forester -- built, of course, on the same platform as the Impreza
    -- has been a great workhorse for us making many trips to Home Depot
    (long boards and pipe go on the roof rack) and the local tree /
    landscape farm.

    By the way, because the center section of the WRX's rar seat can be
    opened to the cargo area, I can carry eight-foot pieces of conduit,
    pipe, or light boards inside the WRX and still close the trunk lid.

    I got the WRX sedan after owning four Legacy wagons over twenty years.
    I loved my wagons but I've never looked back; the WRX sedan is way fun!
