Compare the Legacy

Our new Subaru Legacy is certainly one of the popular highlights accessible out on our showroom floor, and a comparison against competitive models on the marketplace in the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima and Chevrolet Malibu is certainly warranted. Assessing the base trims of these four models while considering components such as performance, safety, features, interior space and more, we believe you will get a clear picture of what car is right for you.

Subaru Legacy vs. Ford Fusion

  • Coming standard across all trim options, the Legacy sports symmetrical all-wheel drive capability.
  • With two engine options available, the Legacy comes standard with a 2.5-liter DOHC engine that kicks out 175 horsepower at 5,800 rotations per minute and 174 pound-feet at 4,000 rotations per minute.
  • No matter where you're seated in the Legacy, whether front or back seat, you'll likely enjoy the spacious interior afforded to Cincinnati drivers. 
  • Sporting the Subaru StarLink multimedia system, Covington drivers will likely enjoy the convenient, easy to just infotainment system of the Subaru in comparison to the Fusion.
  • The Legacy standard trim has a more impressive estimated fuel economy rating than the Ford Fusion standard model. The Legacy has an estimated 25/34 city/highway rating, while the Ford Fusion has an estimated 21/31 city/highway fuel economy rating.

Subaru Legacy vs. Chevrolet Malibu

  • Fort Thomas drivers can rest easy knowing that the Subaru Legacy is ready to take on all kinds of different terrains thanks to Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive. Unlike the Chevrolet Malibu, which doesn't offer an all-wheel drive option. 
  • Drive with boosted confidence in Florence thanks to Subaru EyeSight driver assist technology. Subaru EyeSight features adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure and sway warning, and lane keep assist
  • On the security side of things, the Subaru Legacy offers Cincinnati drivers a keyless entry system and anti-theft security system with immobilizer technology. 
  • If Florence drivers want a bit more power they can select the 2.5i Limited or 3.6R Limited trim, which sports a 3.6-liter DOHC 6-cylinder engine (256 horsepower)

Subaru Legacy vs. Nissan Altima

  • All-wheel drive shines through as another distinguishing factor when compared to the Nissan Altima. Covington drivers can take on various terrains with reassured confidence thanks to the Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive system.
  • If you're a Fort Thomas driver looking to add a touch of near-luxury features to your Legacy, you can add leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front and rear seats (all-weather package), or a silver metallic interior with wood-grain patterned matte finish accent trim, amongst a host of available features.
  • The Legacy provides plenty of available packages for Cincinnati drivers to choose from. Whether you're looking to add more safety features, or an improved multimedia system (StarLink eight-inch multimedia with navigation infotainment system), or you just want to add the alloy wheel package, drivers have a robust selection to choose from.

Subaru Legacy vs. Honda Accord

  • Sporting options for a six-cylinder engine, if you're a Florence driver that needs a six-cylinder engine then the Legacy is the choice for you. The Honda Accord doesn't have an option for a six-cylinder engine.
  • The performance side of things leaves a mismatch between the Legacy and the Honda Accord. The Legacy sports all-wheel drive while the Accord comes in front-wheel drive.
  • Some highlight features that are available with the Legacy include: LED steering responsive headlights, Subaru StarLink multimedia, and EyeSight driver assist technology.

Subaru Legacy vs. Toyota Camry

  • The Legacy comes standard with all-wheel drive, but the Camry only has front-wheel drive drivetrain availability.
  • Covington drivers will also have a larger fuel capacity if they select the Legacy.
