Legacy vs. the Competition

See How the Legacy Matches up Against the Competition at New Motors Subaru


With so many different makes and models comprising the midsize sedan class, it can be difficult to sift through all the information to find what's important. That's why here at New Motors Subaru we want to outline a few ways the Subaru Legacy has a leg up on the competition.


Subaru Legacy vs. Nissan Maxima

  • Price is the obvious signifier here, with the base MSRP of the legacy at $21,745 compared to the 32,510 price tag of the Maxima. With the extra money you'd save, you can actually upgrade to the highest level of Legacy and it still would be less expensive than the base level Maxima.
  • Fuel economy should always be a large factor when buying a vehicle. With the Legacy sporting an impressive 36 mpg highway and 26 city, compared to the Maxima, with only 30 mpg highway and 22 in the city.
  • Even after the large price tag of the Maxima, it fails to offer all-wheel drive. Subaru builds every car with standard all-wheel drive, which translates into impeccable performance.

Subaru Legacy vs. Honda Accord

  • Again, the Legacy boasts a lower base MSRP price tag than the Accord does, starting at just $21,745 compared to the Accord which starts at $22,205.
  • Space is crucial in the grand scheme of a midsize sedan's functionality. The Legacy has an overall passenger volume of 104.6 cubic feet, where the Accord has just 93.1.
  • Again, Subaru is ahead of the competition with all-wheel drive standard in every Legacy, while the Accord comes with front-wheel drive.
