Yes, the chassis dynamics is a lot better, no snow around here to make the most use of the AWD though. The wagon handles well because it is a GT, better springs and sway bars. The hatch had puny little springs and sway bars, the sway bars from another 4WD wagon were an improvement. If this handles as well as the wagon I will be happy, maybe it will be better because it doesn't have the rear weight up high like the wagon. New Toyo teo plus 195/60/15 tyres as well, they sound like they do what I want. I debated going to to 17", but decided not to spend the money on new mags at this time.
