The 2017 Subaru Legacy Delivers Features that Other Mid-size Sedans Can't Match

Drivers from North Reading, Boston, Belmont, Lawrence, and Medford certainly have lots of options when it comes to selecting a new mid-size sedan. That's why, here at North Reading Subaru, we're proud to include the 2017 Legacy in our lineup of capable new Subaru vehicles; because when it comes to driving in New England, you can't beat the superior control and confident handling of Legacy's standard symmetrical all-wheel-drive. Here are some other reasons to choose the Legacy over the competition.

Subaru Legacy vs. Honda Accord

  • The 2017 Legacy is significantly more affordable than the 2017 Accord.
  • Also known as a Boxer engine, the Legacy's horizontally-opposed flat engine is designed to deliver smoother performance thanks to the opposing action of the pistons which cancels out vibrations. Additionally, the positioning of a boxer engine ensures constant lubrication, even during startup. Inline engines, like the one in the Honda Accord, start dry, increasing friction which can decrease the life of the engine.
  • The 2017 Legacy base model offers a continuously variable transmission-- more advanced than Accord's standard 6-speed manual.
  • Legacy's EPA mileage estimate of 25 city / 34 highway bests that of Accord (23/32).

Subaru Legacy vs. Toyota Camry

  • The 2017 Legacy's spacious cabin has more head room, shoulder room, hip room, and leg room, which makes for a more comfortable ride than Camry.
  • Legacy comes in at a lower starting price point than Camry.
  • Legacy's continuously variable transmission delivers smoother "stepless" shifts and improved fuel efficiency. Camry's shiftable automatic transmission doesn't.

Of course, the only way to truly appreciate a vehicle is to experience it in person. If you're in the market for a new mid-size sedan, come visit North Reading Subaru for a test drive and see for yourself what sets the 2017 Legacy apart from the competition. It will be our pleasure to assist you.
