2018 Subaru Legacy compared to the 2018 Hyundai Elantra

It is easy to look at vehicles and just assume they have the same features because they are in the same category, but these two vehicles are a great example of how that is not true. While the Elantra is cheaper, it doesn't offer anywhere near as many advantages as the Legacy does. Not only does the Legacy offer more power across all available trims, putting 175 horsepower at the base and 256 horsepower when upgraded against the 147 horsepower and 201 horsepower of the Elantra, but it also comes with more passenger space and cargo volume. Other features worth comparing include: 

  • All Wheel Drive on the Legacy versus Front Wheel Drive on the Elantra
  • A Larger fuel tank so that you don't have to stop to fill up as much as the Elantra does
  • Standard Rearview camera available on the base model of the Legacy, not on the base Elantra
  • Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology available from 2.5i Premium trim, similar features are only on the highest trim of the Elantra

2018 Subaru Legacy compared to the 2018 Honda Accord

Honda has been known to provide some of the most well-known vehicles, but does that mean they are the best in every category? A short answer: no. That isn't to say a vehicle like the Honda Accord doesn't offer its own benefits, but there are other vehicles in its category that will offer some advantages. For instance, the Subaru Legacy comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, making it more capable of taking on rough conditions or bad weather than the front-wheel drive Accord. The Legacy is even offered at a lower price than the Accord, and still manages to offer an incredible amount that customers should consider: 

  • Higher maximum horsepower in available engine choices
  • More headroom and legroom for passengers to stay comfortable during the entire journey
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available on all models, not just upgraded ones

2018 Subaru Legacy compared to 2018 Toyota Camry

Toyota has done a good job with its design and construction of the Toyota Camry, even earning the same distinction that the Legacy has from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS): Top Safety Pick Plus. While they share this similarity, there are also many differences that customers would appreciate knowing when they are choosing which vehicle will meet the needs of their life: 

  • As mentioned, the Legacy comes with All-wheel drive, whereas the Camry comes with front-wheel drive
  • The Legacy comes in at a lower price point than that of the Camry
  • There is more passenger space, helping your friends and family be more comfortable in your vehicle.
  • The larger fuel tank of the Legacy makes sure you can go further without needing to stop for gas.
