Subaru Impreza vs Subaru Legacy
Shopping for cars can be a hassle, and confusing at times. However, let me make one thing easy for you. If you are looking to get a classic sedan, the Subaru should be somewhere on the top part of your list. All Subarus are built to last, including the two top models Subaru Impreza and Subaru Legacy. Though both of these two models are great and pretty similar, there are some differences in the standard features, size, performance as well as value. These differences can decide as to which one you are likely to buy. Let’s go a little more in-depth into these differences.
The 2019 Subaru Legacy has the Subaru EyeSight. This helps the driver in pre-collision braking, keeping within the lanes, and adaptive cruise control. The Subaru Impreza, on the other hand, only offers that as an additional option, not as a standard feature. The Impreza, on the other hand, comes with s standard feature manual five-speed transmission, which is not available in the Legacy.
The Legacy is a larger midsize sedan while the Impreza is a compact car. The Legacy has almost 2 inches more legroom than the Impreza and has a larger trunk at 15 cubic feet as compared to 12.3 cubic feet in the Impreza.
The performance in the Impreza focuses more on everyday driving. It goes to 38 MPG on the highway and makes 152 horsepower. The Legacy goes to 34 MPG on the highway but has 175 horsepower. You have the option of upgrading to a six-cylinder Boxer engine giving the Legacy 256 horsepower! The Impreza, unfortunately, does not have an engine upgrade available.
The Impreza starts at $4,000 less than the entry-level 2019 Subaru Legacy. Also, since it has better MPG, it will be cheaper to own as well since you are paying less for gas.

The safety features are just as important to keep up with as the mechanical features.
