Against the Subaru Legacy, the Competition is Blown Out of the Water

The mid-sized Subaru Legacy is a wonderful choice for a family car, offering lots of interior space, a look that can't be ignored, and a price that'll make your jaw drop. But that's not all the Legacy offers, and we have it right here at Michael Hohl Subaru.

If we had to pick one word to describe the Legacy's looks, it would be "elegant." Smooth curves and lines give it a flowing appearance from front to back. Of course, it's more than just a beautiful face; every trim level of the Legacy comes with Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive so you can take on any road condition with confidence, all year round. On top of this, it also manages to keep fuel efficiency sky high, achieving an EPA-estimated 36 miles per gallon on the highway standard! You'll be waving goodbye to the fuel pumps more than you ever thought possible.

Inside, the sophistication continues seamlessly with spacious seating areas in both front and back, available leather trimmed seating for even more luxury, an available power moonroof to let in the sunshine, and even the safety of the available EyeSight Driver Assist Technology system. But this isn't even scratching the surface.

There are a number of competitors for the Subaru Legacy, so how do they shape up? Take a look below and get the facts about why the Legacy reigns supreme.

Subaru Legacy vs. Toyota Camry

It may be popular, but that doesn't make it the superior choice. The Camry is a nice car with a roomy interior, but it pales in comparison to the Legacy.

  • Price may be the very first thing you look at and, when it comes to affordability, the Legacy wins outright. The Legacy's $21,695 staring price looks pretty sweet next to the Camry's $22,300.

  • With all-wheel drive standard, the Legacy is ready to take on any road right out of the gate; you'll have to pay more for it in the Corolla.

  • The Legacy wins out for front leg and head room, as well as shoulder room in front and back. Stretch out a little more and get comfy on even the longer drives.

Subaru Legacy vs Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima goes for a premium look but, when you break it down, the Legacy wins. It may have a little more power, but power mean nothing when you're cramped in the rear seat.

  • Again, price is important and the Legacy wins even harder. $21,695 compared to the Altima's $22,970? No contest.

  • Headroom is the same but, in the Legacy, an extra two inches of legroom and one inch of shoulder room in the rear seats will definitely keep the kids happy on family vacations.

  • Neither standard daytime running lights or cruise control, nor the option for fog lights or splash guards? The base Altima trim is definitely lacking where the Legacy keeps the exterior features available.
