Subaru Legacy Vs. The Competition

See How the Subaru Legacy Fairs against its Midsize-Sedan Competitors

The Subaru Legacy won't blend into the midsize-sedan crowd. It's uniquely surefooted, safe, and value-packed design work to set it apart from its cookie-cutter family-car competitors. Kingston, Wappingers Falls, Rhinebeck and Catskill interested in a car that doesn't sacrifice capability for the sake of cost -- and vice versa -- should seriously consider the latest Legacy.

For more to consider, check out the comparison below, which pits the Legacy against its Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata rivals:

The Subaru Legacy vs the Ford Fusion in Kingston, NY

  • The Legacy's standard four-cylinder engine earns better fuel economy ratings than the Fusion's base 4cyl.
  • The Legacy leads in value, too, with the lower starting price than the Fusion
  • Speaking of value, that lower cost includes standard all-wheel drive (AWD) as well, while you have to pay more for surefootedness with the Fusion. In fact, you have to upgrade to a more expensive trim with a different engine just to have the option to add AWD.
  • Thoughtful features like a standard rear armrest, door curb lights, and exterior temperature gauge set the Legacy apart from the Fusion, which doesn't come equipped with any of these amenities right out of the gate.
  • The Fusion starts out on 16-inch wheels, while larger 17-inch wheels come standard on the Legacy. This gives the Legacy a more upscale appearance.
  • The Legacy is a bit taller than the Fusion, which makes for more front headroom. The Legacy also has more front/rear hip room and front/rear shoulder room. Overall, the Legacy just has a greater passenger volume than the Fusion.
  • The 2017 Legacy earns the highest Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Simply put, the Fusion doesn't.

The Subaru Legacy vs the Hyundai Sonata in Kingston, NY

  • Tackling New York roads in winter is a walk in the park for the Legacy, as that standard AWD makes for ideal traction and control year-round. The Sonata, on the other hand, doesn't even offer AWD.
  • You don't even have to sacrifice efficiency for the sake of surefootedness, as the Legacy can still match the Sonata in fuel economy.
  • The Legacy comes in at a lower starting price than the Sonata as well.
  • For the past ten years, the Legacy has earned the highest Top Safety Pick+ awards from the IIHS. Needless to say, the Sonata can't claim the same.
  • The Legacy pampers all passengers with ample spaciousness -- particularly in the backseat, where it beats out the Sonata in legroom.
