All kinds of drivers and families count on midsize sedans like the Subaru Legacy and Honda Accord. They're safe, efficient, and loaded with features. Which one is right for you, though? To help drivers near Parsippany, Wayne, and Morristown decide, Paul Miller Subaru put them up against each other in this Subaru Legacy vs. Honda Accord comparison.

Legacy vs Accord: Safety Features

The Subaru Legacy is designed to keep you safe with an advanced airbag system that includes a driver's knee airbag and side curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. It'll also keep you in control when the weather gets tough with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

You'll also have lots of driver assistance features on board that can prevent accidents before they occur. The standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology system gives you more awareness of what's around your car by bundling together features, such as:

  • Pre-Collision Braking System
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering

The Honda Accord also has a standard package of driver assistance features. You can count on it to keep you safe with side curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag. However, it's only available in front-wheel drive and can't provide you with the same kind of traction and control.

Infotainment Systems

To help you stay connected and enjoy your favorite music during your drive, the Subaru Legacy comes with the SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia system. It gives you a choice between two 7-inch touchscreens or an 11.6-inch screen.

Each one is Bluetooth® compatible, so you can reply to text messages, make hands-free calls, and stream your music. You'll also have access to your smartphone apps with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. For some variety in your music, SiriusXM® All Access Radio comes standard, too.

The Honda Accord also has a Bluetooth® compatible infotainment system. However, it only offers a choice between a single 7- or 8-inch screen. On top of providing you with less visibility, SiriusXM®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ aren't even available on the base trim.

Performance: Subaru Legacy vs Honda Accord

Both the Subaru Legacy and Honda Accord offer a pair of efficient powertrains. Each option delivers a smooth, comfortable ride as well as reliable fuel economy. The Legacy is also capable of offering a sporty performance, though.

It's available with a turbocharged 2.4L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets up to 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. This works with an efficient Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that helps it get up to an EPA-estimated 24 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.

The Honda Accord can't offer as much power under the hood. Its most athletic engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that comes up just short with 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It's slightly less efficient downtown, too, and can only get up to an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.*
