2019 Subaru Legacy vs. Its Competition

2019 Subaru Legacy
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

It was our Best Car to Buy 2018.

The Toyota Camry tries to be spunkier than it is, but it has a deserved reputation for value and reliability.

A new Nissan Altima this year adds a turbo engine and the option of all-wheel drive, but not together.

The Chevrolet Malibu has a comfortable, relaxed personality, while the Ford Fusion looks great but is showing its age.
