In Today's Midsize Sedan Segment, the Competition is Stiff--See How the Subaru Legacy, Toyota Camry, and Honda Accord Compare

Think all mid-size sedans are cast from the same mold? Think again! These days, automakers are branching out when it comes to what their sedan offerings bring to the table; and while variants of years past delivered little more than so-so styling and functionality, these days, mid-size rides are some of the best looking on the streets of the Lake Forest, CA area--not to mention feature- and technology-rich, exceptionally comfortable, and fun to drive, too!

In fact, the most challenging part of purchasing a new midsize sedan these days is narrowing down the many viable options to just one. That's why we're pegging our very own new Subaru Legacy against two of its fiercest competitors: the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. Take a look at how the three models compare, then be sure to visit us here at Gold Rush Subaru to take a closer look at any and all of the new Subaru models currently on our showroom floor.

Subaru Legacy vs. Toyota Camry

  • Fuel Economy: The Subaru Legacy edges out the Camry when it comes to fuel economy, both in city and highway driving. The difference in the cars' respective ratings may seem slight, but when you also consider the fact that the Legacy has greater fuel capacity, the combination of the two allows Legacy drivers to travel much longer between fuel station fill ups than they would in a Toyota Camry.
  • Interior Volume: If you value ride comfort and practicality--and who doesn't?--the Legacy will likely feel like a better fit thanks to its more abundant total interior volume. The quarters in the Camry are a bit more on the cramped side.
  • MSRP: When looking at comparably equipped models, the Subaru midsize sedan emerges as the more desirable of the two, due largely to its more affordable price point. Save over a grand when you choose the base trim of the Legacy rather than that of the Camry; or, take that money saved and invest in a higher, more feature-right Subaru Legacy.

Subaru Legacy vs. Honda Accord

  • MSRP: Apples to apples, the Subaru Legacy presents itself as the more affordable of the two midsize sedan offerings. Interested Auburn, CA shoppers can save over a grand when they opt for the Legacy, as opposed to a comparably equipped Honda Accord.
  • Less Frequent Fuel Stops: Both the Legacy and the Accord are available with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which allows for greatly improved fuel economy. And while their city and highway economy ratings are virtually identical, the Legacy has a greater fuel capacity, which means Legacy drivers will need to pull over for fuel fill-ups much less frequently than their peers behind the wheel of the Accord.
  • Off-Road Capability: Subaru infamously offers all-wheel drive as a standard feature across the entirety of its model lineup, regardless of trim. Needless to say, the Subaru Legacy offers standard AWD, while the Accord only offers front-wheel drive capability across the entire Accord lineup.
