How Does the New Subaru Legacy Compare to the Honda Accord?

The Honda Accord has stood out for a long time as one of the mid-sized market's most popular favorites. There's a reason for that! Honda makes good cars, and the Accord is one of its best.

For everything the Honda Accord brings to the table, however, there's another mid-sized sedan that might just offer you more (and for less!). We're talking, of course, about the new Subaru Legacy.

Serving drivers in Raleigh, Garner, Clayton and more, the Subaru experts at Southern States Subaru can tell you more about the Subaru Legacy, and it's why you should choose it over competing cars like the Honda Accord.

Which Mid-Sized Car is Right for Me?

The Honda Accord might be a great car with lots of options, but you better you're going to have to pay to get the best of them. Contrast that to the Subaru Legacy, which offers many of its best features right at the base level. When you add in the fact that the Subaru Legacy can reach higher peaks of performance and has a lower starting price? It becomes clear which new model offers the better value.
