Comparing the 2020 Subaru Legacy to the Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata in Kingston, NY

When it comes to picking the right midsized sedan for your travels around Albany, you'll want the best in terms of space and comfort, safety and efficiency.

That's the kind of capability you'll want for handling your winter driving around Newburgh during spells of snowy and icy weather. The Legacy maintains its status as one of the more fuel-efficient options in its class, so you can't go wrong with a new one here in Kingston.

To give you an idea of how the new 2020 Legacy stacks up to the competition, we're comparing it to two other popular midsized sedans. Take a look below to see how the Legacy bests the latest editions of the Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata. Once you're ready to get yours, come visit our Kingston, NY Subaru dealer today for a closer look and a quick test drive in this AWD-powered sedan.

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Ford Fusion

  • Not only will the 2020 Ford Fusion cost Kingston drivers more than the 2020 Subaru Legacy, but it won't offer all-wheel drive standard, which will add even more to the bill. Subaru gives its drivers trusted Symmetrical AWD at the base level without charging more.
  • The 2020 Legacy near Albany can also deliver exceptional safety with its new DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System, helping you stay alert and provide a warning if the vehicle senses you're distracted or drowsy. This is a feature that the 2020 Fusion cannot offer to its drivers.
  • In the 2020 Subaru Legacy, you'll get standard Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Sway Warning, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management as part of the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology suite. The 2020 Ford Fusion offers some of these features separately rather than as part of a collective system, and many are not available at the base level.
  • Wireless device charging for compatible smart devices is a must these days, and the 2020 Legacy Premium offers this feature, while the 2020 Fusion doesn't seem to have this feature as an option on any trim level.
  • In the 2020 Legacy, you can find up to 35 mpg highway on the standard engine, while the standard 2020 Fusion engine offers 31 mpg highway.
  • The 2020 Fusion also fails to offer as much horsepower on the base engine as the 2020 Legacy near  Gardiner does on its base engine. Drivers will get 175 horsepower on the 2.5-liter Ford engine and 182 horsepower on the 2.5-liter Subaru engine.
  • The 2020 Subaru Legacy also offers a 2.4-liter engine with 260 horsepower while the 2020 Ford Fusion offers a 2.0-liter engine with 245 horsepower.

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Hyundai Sonata

  • 2020 Legacy drivers in Newburgh can find more rear legroom, front and rear shoulder room, and passenger volume than you will in the 2020 Sonata.
  • The 2020 Sonata won't let you have all-wheel drive even as an option, but in the 2020 Legacy, you'll get Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard.
  • Heated exterior mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer is an important feature during the winter, and the 2020 Sonata won't have these available, but the 2020 Legacy will let you enjoy these helpful features on the Premium trim level.
  • Both the 2020 Sonata and 2020 Legacy near New Paltz offer a Driver Attention Monitoring System, but the Subaru model is available for a lower price than the Hyundai model.
  • Drivers interested in having a large touchscreen display will find the 2020 Sonata offering a base 8-inch display, while the 2020 Legacy can offer an 11.6-inch multimedia system.
  • In the 2020 Subaru Legacy, you'll get a 2.5-liter engine with 182 horsepower or a 2.4-liter engine with 260 horsepower. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata can only give you a 1.6-liter Turbo GDI engine with 180 horsepower or a 2.5-liter GDI engine with 191 horsepower.
  • On the 2020 Subaru Legacy Limited, you'll get leather seating surfaces, which is also available on the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited, but for much more money.
  • In the 2020 Sonata, you'll get Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist on the SEL trim level, while the 2020 Legacy gives you its Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert features on the Premium trim level.
  • Wireless charging for compatible devices is offered on the 2020 Legacy near Woodstock, NY, on the Premium trim level, which is a much lower trim level than the 2020 Sonata SEL Plus, which is when Hyundai offers it as a standard feature. You'll also spend more for it with the Sonata than you will with the Legacy.
