If you're in the market for a new ride to take you through the streets of Bristol, Fall River, and Somerset, a sedan might be your best bet. They're maneuverable, spacious, and feature some of the best new automotive technology. Plus, sedans are incredibly popular, so you'll have a lot of options to choose from.

While the sedan selection is vast, two models tend to stand out from the pack. Both the Subaru Legacy and the Honda Accord can serve well as your next ride, but only one of them can be the best suited for your unique needs. Find out which in our comprehensive 2019 Subaru Legacy vs. Honda Accord comparison.


When it comes to engine power, both of these sedans are largely the same. Each even has an upgraded version of its engine available to boost your horsepower, but the Legacy takes it slightly further. At best, the Accord can offer 252 horsepower with its 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine, but the Legacy can boast 256 horsepower with its 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine.

The drivetrain also differs between these two models. Subaru has developed a reputation for including all-wheel drive in all of their vehicles, and the Legacy is no exception. No matter which version you opt for, the Legacy will grant you control only found with all-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the Accord doesn't even offer all-wheel drive as an option.


Convenience plays a major role in modern sedans, and both of these vehicles excel in that regard. You can get push-button start on both, along with dual-zone climate control features, so you and your passenger never have to argue about your preferred temperatures. Even power adjustment for the driver's' seat is available in both.

The Legacy does have a few advantages, however, making your drive a bit easier. Fuel economy is similar for both sedans when comparing equivalent engine sizes, but the Legacy's fuel tank is much larger, measuring at 18.5 gallons, while the Accord holds 14.8 gallons.1 Additionally, the Legacy features a turning diameter of just 36.8 feet, while the Accord needs 39.4 feet for the same maneuver.


There's plenty of technology available on both of these sedans, but the Legacy offers more features that come standard. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are among the most popular features for any vehicle's infotainment system, and you can get them on each of these sedans. Only the Legacy features it standard, however, requiring you to climb up the trim levels with the Accord.

In terms of safety technology, both of these vehicles shine. Each earned a perfect five stars in all crash test categories, but they also both feature a long list of driver-assistance technologies that can offer peace of mind behind the wheel. The Legacy's EyeSight® system and the Accord's HondaSensing® system both offer features like Forward Collision Warning with automatic braking and Lane Keeping Assist. Only the Legacy, however, can blend these systems with its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard on all models.
