2020 Subaru Legacy vs. Its Competition

2020 Subaru Legacy
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are leaders among mid-size sedans thanks to their perceived reliability and dependability.

The Accord has an upscale interior with stretch-out space and good looks.

The Camry’s more conservative and offers a hybrid version that’s very fuel efficient.

The Altima offers all-wheel drive—the Legacy makes it standard—but its interior is plainer and it’s likely to be less expensive than its rivals.

The Sonata is a more stylish sedan, although we haven’t yet driven it.

The Malibu is hanging on for Chevrolet, its best look may be its low price in base trims.
