Are you looking for the right new sedan to fit your lifestyle and needs in Staten Island? The new 2021 Subaru Legacy lineup offers style, comfort, cutting-edge features, and legendary capability in every model. Whether you're driving to work in NYC, bringing the kids to school across town, or going on a multi-state adventure, with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on every Legacy model, you can take on any weather and enjoy a commanding driving experience wherever your travels take you around Brooklynn. At Island Subaru, it's our mission to help every driver from the Jersey City area buy or lease the vehicle that's right for them. To help you understand why driving a Subaru Legacy model is the right option for you, we're going to compare it to top competitors in the midsize sedan class, including the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata.

2021 Subaru Legacy vs. 2021 Honda Accord

  • If you never want the weather in Avenel to dictate your plans, choose the Subaru Legacy. All 2021 Subaru Legacy models come equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, delivering optimal traction and control. The new Honda Accord is only available with front-wheel drive.
  • To help you stay connected and enjoy easy control of your mobile device and vehicle features on the go, the Legacy offers your choice of a standard 7-inch or available 11.6-inch touchscreen display. The new Honda Accord comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display on all models.
  • The new Accord achieves slightly higher estimated fuel economy than the Legacy. However, with 18.5 gallons of fuel capacity in the Legacy and 14.8 in the Accord, you won't have to fill up as often around Woodbridge in the Legacy.

2021 Subaru Legacy vs. 2021 Toyota Camry

  • From winter weather and off-road terrain to commanding the streets of NYC, with standard all-wheel drive on every Legacy model, you can take on every outing confidently. The new Toyota Camry comes equipped with standard front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available on select models at an extra cost.
  • The new Subaru Legacy offers more space for passengers and for cargo. The Legacy offers 105.5 cubic feet of passenger volume with an extra 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk for all your storage needs. The Toyota Camry offers 100.4 cubic feet of passenger volume and 14.1 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk.
  • The Legacy starts at just under $23,000 while the new Toyota Camry starts at just under $25,000, allowing you to upgrade to a higher trim level in the Legacy for a similar price to the base Camry. When you factor in the price of available all-wheel drive, the price divide grows.
