When you start your search for a model that can check off all the boxes on your wish list, the 2020 Subaru Legacy is well-equipped for any situation. You can compare the Legacy to plenty of competitors, like the 2020 Honda Accord, but time and again, the Subaru Legacy demonstrates why is the best option for Vermont drivers. Check out a comparison of the two models below and see why we prefer the 2020 Legacy!

Standard All-Wheel Drive

The Subaru Legacy comes standard with Symmetrical all-wheel drive to ensure you have better traction and control when the snow starts falling. The Honda Accord doesn't offer this feature at all. Both sedans offer turbocharged engine options that provide responsive and efficient experiences when out and about. However, the 2.4-liter turbocharged engine option from the Legacy lineup outputs more horsepower and pound-feet of torque than any option from the Accord lineup. The Honda has impressive efficiency, but with a smaller gas tank capacity than the Subaru Legacy, you'll find yourself stopping for gas more often. 

Interior and Exterior Design

Both options include LED headlights with auto on/off features for peace of mind when you drive late at night. The Subaru Legacy also offers LED Steering Responsive Headlights which isn't something you'll find with the Accord.The Honda Accord comes standard with a seven-inch infotainment screen, but the Legacy does you one better with a seven-inch touchscreen. The Legacy also offers an 11.6-inch touchscreen, bigger than any available option from the Honda lineup. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are standard in the Subaru Legacy for easy smartphone integration. The Honda Accord makes you pay extra to unlock these features. Both models offer impressive driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, and lane-keep functions. Only the Subaru Legacy combines these features with all-wheel drive to ensure you have the best control and stability.



2020 Subaru Legacy vs. Toyota Camry

Choosing the right sedan for Vermont driving can be tricky, especially when you want one that can survive the rough winter months. The 2020 Subaru Legacy is equipped to handle harsh, snowy roads. It can also give you the ability to take your adventures off-road, and it's equipped with plenty of luxuries to make the most of any trip. When compared to the Toyota Camry, it's easy to see why the Subaru Legacy is the perfect sedan for Vermont drivers. Check out how the two sedans compare head-to-head.

Powerful Performance

The Subaru sedan comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive. The Toyota Camry doesn't offer this feature at all. While the Toyota Camry does offer a V6 engine that produces the most horsepower, the Subaru Legacy provides the most power to its wheels with 277 pound-feet of torque. No engine option from the Camry matches this. The Toyota Camry is efficient and offers plenty of mpg in the city and on the highway. However, it only comes equipped with a 15.8-gallon gas tank while the Subaru Legacy helps you go farther with an 18.5-gallon tank.

Technology and Features

Subaru offers LED Steering Responsive Headlights with higher trim levels to curve with the road ahead of you. Toyota doesn't offer this feature at all. If you're looking to provide a more comfortable ride for your passengers, the Subaru Legacy is the sedan you're looking for. Both can seat five, but the Legacy provides 105.5 cubic feet of space to the Camry's 100.4 cubic feet. Both sedans offer 15.1 cubic feet of storage in their trunk space, but you need to spend more to find that amount of space with the Camry. The Subaru Legacy guarantees this amount throughout the lineup. The Legacy and the Camry both offer standard 7.0-inch touchscreens with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. However, only the Legacy can offer an available 11.6-inch screen, larger than anything in the Toyota Camry. Each model offers driver-assist technologies to ensure you're safe and sound around the Brattleboro areas in snow and busy traffic situations. But, the Subaru Legacy is the only sedan of the two to offer all-wheel drive to provide more control and traction along with these features.
