2019 Subaru Legacy vs Honda Accord Midsize Sedan Comparison in Redwood City, CA

While they've fallen out of fashion with many families who prefer the extra cargo room and confidence of a truck or SUV, the midsize sedan is still a great way to get around town -- and since you can get more features for less in a car compared to an SUV, going with a midsize sedan can be a great value! But one question remains: which sedan is the best fit for your life?

Thanks to standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Subaru STARLINK™ infotainment, you get more bang for your buck from the 2019 Subaru Legacy. And with its powerful available 3.6L engine upgrade, the 2019 Subaru Legacy can keep pace with the pack.

2019 Subaru Legacy vs. 2019 Honda Accord: Performance

Like most modern sedan cars, the 2019 Honda Accord is a front-wheel drive vehicle with a typical inline engine -- but the 2019 Subaru Legacy isn't like most cars. It comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive! This full-time AWD system will constantly divert engine power to the wheels that need it most. That helps you stay in control on slick streets and loose gravel, while also providing responsive handling and grip on the pavement. And with its flat, horizontally-opposed BOXER® engine, the 2019 Subaru Legacy boasts a lower center of gravity that reduces body roll. The Subaru Legacy is built to outperform its competitors.
