Power and Performance

  • While the Honda Accord comes equipped with a more powerful base engine, its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine falls behind the Subaru Legacy's 2.4-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine. The latter delivers 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, ensuring you get the performance you want.
  • The Subaru Legacy is standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a feature you don't find on many midsize or compact sedans. This drivetrain allows you to enjoy extra traction control and handling, making off-road adventures a little easier to manage. The Honda Accord doesn't offer AWD in its lineup.
  • Both models offer impressive fuel efficiency, helping you avoid more frequent trips to the gas pump. While the Accord holds a slight edge in the city and on the highway, the Legacy makes up for the difference with a much larger gas tank of up to 18.5-gallons - the Accord maxes out at 14.8-gallons.


  • The exterior of the Subaru Legacy enjoys numerous advantages to keep your commute enjoyable and easy. When it comes to nighttime driving, the Legacy has you covered with standard LED Steering Responsive Headlights that curve with the road ahead for your convenience. The Honda Accord doesn't have a similar set of features.
  • Inside, the Honda Accord is all-new with a standard eight-inch touchscreen, complete with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. The Subaru Legacy also includes the same smartphone integration capability and comes standard with a dual seven-inch setup for your music, apps, and climate controls. However, the Subaru Legacy also offers an 11.6-inch touchscreen for higher trim models - the Accord limits you to one option.


  • Both sedans are exceptionally safe vehicles, often leading the segment with awards and accolades that note how safe and secure they make you feel. The Legacy comes standard with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, and the Honda Accord is standard with the Honda Sensing® features, both delivering similar experiences with lane-change alert, pre-collision braking, and adaptive cruise control. However, the Subaru Legacy takes its advantages to the next level with available features that include the DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System and Reverse Automatic Braking, assisting you when you start to become tired or need help backing out of your parking spot. The Honda Accord doesn't offer either of these features.
