Which Legacy is the Best?

If your idea of transportation is a midsize sedan, you can't go wrong with the Legacy. When you consider that both the affordable pricing and solid fuel economy are for an AWD vehicle, it makes the choice even more appealing. We think the sweet spot is the Sport grade. It's priced right at 30 grand and offers an amazing array of standard features and options. Find a Subaru Legacy for sale

2020 Subaru Legacy vs the competition

2019 Toyota Camry -- Toyota took a swing for the fences with the current Camry. It only barely resembles earlier Camry models. Top-notch materials and craftsmanship, as well as it's finally a hoot to drive.

2019 Mazda6 -- Oddly, the new Camry reminds us more of the Mazda6 than the previous Camry. That's saying something, as the 6's handling and driving experience in general are the sportiest and most driver-focused in the segment. This is a very strong alternative.

2019 Hyundai Sonata -- Like the Mazda above, the Sonata received a significant, if not complete, overhaul a couple of years ago. Its styling was made a little less frumpy and its driving experience was enlivened.

2019 Honda Accord -- The Camry was on top of the midsize sedan world for a few short months until an all-new Accord launched and stole much of its thunder. Make sure to drive both the Camry and the Accord -- both are excellent.
