Help on choosing a car.
I'm in a delema and thought you guys would be the perfect group of people to ask.
I'm planning on moving up to Revelstoke or somewhere in BC for the winter (and probably end up staying up there). I plan to do a lot of boarding and back country riding too, so maybe snow mobiles in the future? I also plan to go hiking, camping, canoeing, ect (I'll be living in the Rockies so those kind of activities).
On to the question. I am buying a new car on Monday and can't decide between a Subaru Forester or the Impreza WRX (both '09). I prefer the look ect on the WRX but it'd be nice to have the extra cargo room and ground clearance the Forester offers. For other people that do these same kind of activities and live in the mountains, do you think the WRX will have enough ground clearance to get the places I'd want to go? I know the WRX can handle snow and the AWD is awesome on it, I'm just worried that it won't have enough ground clearance. Do I even need the ground clearance for back country riding? Sorry I've never been up to Canada, back country boarded, canoed, lived somewhere snowy, or had to worry about toeing anything before so I'm really looking into this blindly. Any advice is appreciated.
Or am I looking at all the wrong cars and there's a better option for me? I just heard Subaru's are the best in snow from a lot of people.
