Compare the Subaru Legacy

What Sets the Subaru Legacy Apart from its Midsize Sedan Competition

When a vehicle has received Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ designations from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for the past 10 years, you wonder what could possibly compete with it. Well, the Subaru Legacy boasts this decade-long accolade, and as a midsize sedan, it has a lot of competition. But with its all-weather traction, exemplary safety record, and easy-to-drive nature, the new Legacy is really in a league of its own.

Norwalk, Rye, Greenwich and Danbury area family-car drivers may want to comparison shop between the Legacy and its top rivals -- like the Accord, Camry or Altima -- so we went ahead and did all of the legwork for you. Check out the results by clicking through on the left-hand side!

Legacy vs. Honda Accord

The Subaru Legacy versus the Honda Accord

  •   As a true Subaru, the Legacy boasts standard all-wheel drive (AWD) for cost-effective, year-round surefootedness. An AWD system is not available on Accord.
  • While both classified as midsize sedans, the Legacy offers more headroom, legroom, shoulder room, and overall passenger volume than the Accord.
  • The available Subaru STARLINK® suite of features adds safety and security technologies like automatic collision notification, emergency assistance, and stolen vehicle recovery. The Accord doesn't offer any of these features.

Legacy vs. Toyota Camry

  •   Again, the Legacy confidently cruises to the head of its class with standard AWD, and the Camry can only come equipped front-wheel drive (FWD).
  • Both the base Legacy and Camry are powered by a four-cylinder engine, but even with a weightier AWD system, the Legacy is still more efficient than the FWD Camry.
  • The Legacy is more spacious than the Camry as well, and it's more accommodating for heads, legs, shoulders, etc. in both the front and rear.

Legacy vs. Nissan Altima

The Subaru Legacy versus the Nissan Altima

  •   You guessed it -- the Legacy's standard AWD sets it far apart from its FWD-only Altima competition. And even with this beefier powertrain, the Legacy is still neck and neck with the Altima when it comes to fuel economy. Surefootedness without sacrifice sounds pretty good, right?
  • The Legacy is wider than the Altima, and it makes for a more spacious rear seat and greater overall passenger volume -- two characteristics that make for an ideal road-trip vehicle.
  • Tech-savviness and creature comforts are standard on the Legacy, as it comes equipped with such niceties as automatic headlights, smartphone app integration, and a touchscreen display -- none of which are standard on the Altima .
