Size and Segment | 2019 Subaru Impreza VS. 2019 Subaru Legacy

Features and Options | 2019 Subaru Impreza VS. 2019 Subaru Legacy

Each model gets some unique features that you might not notice from a quick glance at a spec sheet. For example, the 2019 Subaru Legacy strives to be a smooth, affordable, all-wheel-drive luxury sedan. To that end, it's available with features like power-adjusting front seats with driver's lumbar adjustment, heated rear seats and woodgrain interior trim pieces. You won't find any of that equipment on a Subaru Impreza.

However, the 2019 Subaru Impreza boasts some surprises of its own! It's available with sport cloth upholstery featuring red accent stitching and aluminium sport pedals. What's more, it's the only one available with a manual transmission for those who prefer to keep it old school.

Performance | 2019 Subaru Impreza VS. 2019 Subaru Legacy

Thanks to standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, both the Subaru Impreza and Subaru Legacy provide incredible handling response and superior grip on poor surfaces like slick pavement and gravel trails. And their base engines will give you similar acceleration performance.

However, the 2019 Subaru Legacy can be equipped with a bigger, six-cylinder BOXER® engine! That engine churns out 256 horsepower, making the 2019 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited exceptionally quick.
