Subaru's standard all-wheel drive on base models means the sedan gets a leg up on the Chrysler 200 and Ford Fusion, both of which offer the added all-weather traction, but on pricey models.
The Legacy sports a bigger back seat than the 200 and better standard infotainment than the Fusion—not to mention a lower price.
The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord are perennial powerhouses in the segment and both can offer better fuel economy than the Legacy, but the Legacy is just more fun to drive in most models.
The Nissan Altima is the other natural competitor, and it too gained a sporty edition last year.
Beyond the Altima's seats, it doesn't outpoint the Legacy on much else.
