How Does the Subaru Legacy Stack Up to the Competition?

Are you in the market for a new sedan? At our Tilton location, we're delighted to offer the Subaru Legacy. As you're figuring out which model is best for you, it's helpful to consider how all of your options stack up.


If you're looking for a car that takes you over a range of terrain in Concord, performance matters. This is where the Legacy breaks away from the competition - it comes standard with Subaru's legendary symmetrical all-wheel-drive, ensuring exceptional traction. It's the only sedan among its competitors to offer standard AWD. This feature is available on the premium trim levels of the Camry, but it's not an option on the Malibu and the Accord.

Each of the sedans in the Legacy's class comes with a four-cylinder engine. The base-level engine is comparable in terms of power with the Camry and Accord; it's more powerful than the Malibu's engine. If you want more power, you'll love the optional engine upgrade in the Legacy. The Subaru BOXER engine in the Legacy is known for its durability and efficiency; in fact, more than 95 percent of Legacy vehicles sold in the past 10 years are still on the road.

Safety Features

We know that safety is a big concern for drivers in Manchester, which is why we're so proud to carry the Legacy. It comes standard with Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology suite, which includes features like pre-collision braking, lane-departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and more. If you're in traffic, adaptive cruise control is key; the Accord and the Camry also offer this feature standard on all models. The Malibu, on the other hand, only offers it as an available feature. The same goes for many of the other driver-assistance features. All four vehicles, including the Legacy, are available with upgraded options such as blind-spot alerts.


Are you a driver who needs to be connected at all times? Technology is a big consideration. With standard smartphone connection features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the touchscreen Subaru STARLINK multimedia system makes it easy and safer to use your phone on the road. The Camry also offers a similar system as a standard feature. The Accord and the Malibu, however, only offer touchscreen displays with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on higher trim levels.

If you need to get online from the road - or if you have passengers that need to get work done while you drive to Claremont - a Wi-Fi hotspot is a must. The Legacy is available with this option, as is the Camry and the Malibu. The Accord, on the other hand, doesn't give you the option to add internet connectivity.


When it comes to space, the Legacy holds its own in comparison to vehicles like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Chevy Malibu. The roomy Legacy interior is bigger than the Camry and the Malibu, and it's almost identical in space to the Malibu. All of these models come with fold-flat rear seats, which give you the power to expand the trunk space. Speaking of trunk space - all four vehicles come with roomy trunks.


In terms of design, the newer Legacy strikes a careful balance between sporty, rugged, and sophisticated style; the result is a versatile body that blends in effortlessly everywhere from the city to a remote campsite outside of Plymouth. In comparison, the Camry leans toward the sportier end of the spectrum; the Accord features a race-inspired fastback design, and the Malibu is a traditional sedan.

If you decide to go with one of the older Legacy models, you can choose the unique wagon body style - there's nothing quite like it on the market, ensuring that you'll always stand out in a crowd in Laconia.
