2022 Subaru Legacy vs. Its Competition

2022 Subaru Legacy
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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

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

The Accord has an upscale interior with stretch-out space and good looks—and a hybrid edition.

The Sonata is a more stylish sedan, and its hybrid offers sky-high fuel economy; the related Kia K5 makes a stylish mark and sports standard turbo power, but can seem drab in low-cost models.

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.
