The New 2019 Subaru Legacy vs The 2019 Honda Accord

Comparing the Subaru Legacy to the Honda Accord

  • Both of these midsize sedan models feature four-cylinder engines, but the Subaru Legacy can travel further distances outside of Cranberry Twp before requiring fuel thanks to an 18.5-gallon fuel tank capacity, whereas the Honda Accord falls short and can carry up to 14.8 gallons of fuel.
  • Like most other Subaru models the Legacy now features Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as a standard feature, giving you a better edge on winter driving throughout Glenshaw. The Honda Accord does not offer an all-wheel drive system and this feature is only available on their pickup truck and SUV models.
  • Many automotive reviewers and consumers alike tend to be more critical of the standard continuously variable transmission of Honda cars like the Accord due to its imprecise and often uncomfortable acceleration. The standard six-speed automatic transmission of the Legacy provides a more gradual acceleration with smoother gear shifting.
  • Since the Legacy measures taller than the Accord, standing at height of 59 inches over the 57.1-inch height of the Accord, this midsize sedan offers more space up front for you and your copilot. The Legacy provides 40 inches of front head room and almost 43 inches of front leg room, whereas the Accord provides 39.5 inches of head room and 42.3 inches of leg room up front.

Comparing the Subaru Legacy to the Toyota Camry

  • As with the Honda Accord, the Toyota Camry does not offer all-wheel drive in any trim levels, but the legacy offers this more capable powertrain on all trims.
  • Ultimately, Legacy offer more interior space in general with 40 inches of front head room, 37 inches of rear head room, 42.9 inches of front leg room, and 38.1 inches of rear leg room. The Toyota Camry provides 38.3 inches of front head room, 38 inches of front leg room, 42.1 inches of front leg room, and 38 inches of leg room.
  • The starting price of the Camry is over $2,000 more than the Subaru Legacy, but the Legacy provides a few extra conveniences for less, with SUBARU STARLINK™ multimedia and EyeSight® Driver-Assist technology.
  • Driving through Allison Park on a cold winter day can be tough, but the Legacy offers a bit of extra technology in the form of the available All-Weather Package, which adds heated seats and a windshield wiper de-icer. Heated seats are available on the Camry, but a windshield wiper de-icer is wholly absent from this midsize sedan.
