2020 Subaru Legacy vs. Its Competition

2020 Subaru Legacy, 2019 Chicago Auto Show
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

For snowbound drivers, the 2020 Subaru Legacy pairs off best against the Nissan Altima, which finally offers all-wheel drive.

The Honda Accord is our favorite four-door for its poise, comfort, and performance.

It sets a high bar, even if there’s no all-wheel-drive version.

The Mazda 6 is fun to drive but could use more powertrain polish from its optional turbo-4.

The latest Toyota Camry sheds the last model’s dull personality and we like its strong, but thirsty, V-6 engine option.

The tasteful and spacious Hyundai Sonata doesn’t thrill.
