The 2020 Subaru Legacy

A spacious interior, seating for five, dependable performance options, a great feature suite; even in the broadest strokes the Subaru Legacy offers a lot. And that doesn't even touch on its versatility. The Subaru Legacy doesn't just offer all-wheel-drive, it packs it in as a standard feature. Combined with its fair price and everything else it brings to the table, it's not hard to see why the Legacy is a top choice for many Hyannis drivers.

Performance: 2.5-liter inline-4 (203 horsepower, 184 pounds-feet of torque, 29/41 miles per gallon), 3.5-liter V6 (301 horsepower, 267 pounds-feet of torque, 22/33 miles per gallon), 2.5-liter inline-4 electric hybrid (208 horsepower, 51/53 miles per gallon)

Why is the 2020 Subaru Legacy the Right Car for Me?

The Toyota Camry is by no means a bad car. It provides a lot and, performing at its best, can reach higher peaks of performance than the Subaru Legacy. Overall though, the Subaru Legacy is just the better buy. Even if the Camry's more powerful the Legacy's no slouch, and the Camry doesn't offer standard all-wheel-drive like the Legacy does.

More importantly? The Subaru Legacy just offers more value. It starts at a lower price and offers many of the same features for less. And while Toyota's safety package might be good, many critics prefer Subaru's advanced EyeSight technology suite.
