The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things. The 2018 Honda Accord sedan should be at the top of any four-door shoppers’ lists—sedan or otherwise. It’s well-crafted, comfortable, and affordable.
