2019 Subaru Legacy VS 2019 Toyota Camry Comparison Research in Seattle, WA

When it comes to sales figures, the Toyota Camry is a giant. The Camry was the best-selling car in America in 2018. But does that mean it's the best? Does it really give you the best value for your money?

Here in the Pacific Northwest, features like all-wheel drive make a big difference in the rainy weather. And did you know the Subaru Legacy has a roomier interior than the Toyota Camry for a more comfortable drive? In fact, when you compare them closely, we think you'll agree that the 2019 Subaru Legacy is an even better value than the hot-selling 2019 Toyota Camry. Find out below why the Subaru Legacy is a perfect fit for your Seattle area lifestyle.

2019 Subaru Legacy Interior Quality

2019 Subaru Legacy VS Toyota Camry: Interior Quality

With a little extra room inside for both rows of seats, the Subaru Legacy is the more comfortable sedan in this comparison. Where the 2019 Toyota Camry provides just 100.4 cubic feet of passenger room, the 2019 Subaru Legacy gives you an even roomier 104.6 cubic feet of interior space.

Not sure if four cubic feet will really make a difference? Take it from the impartial experts at Car and Driver magazine. They wrote of the roomy cabin in the Legacy, "The real-world effect is even more significant. We're confident saying that folks of the wide, thick, and/or tall persuasions will find more usable room in the front seats than in either of its chief rivals [the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord]."

2019 Subaru Legacy Handling and Performance

2019 Subaru Legacy VS Toyota Camry: Handling & Performance

Every single 2019 Toyota Camry is front-wheel drive. By contrast, the 2019 Subaru Legacy comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. That means you'll enjoy superior grip and handling response from the Subaru!

Furthermore, while the engines available in the Toyota Camry are typical inline or V designs, the unique BOXER® engine found in the Legacy is flat and mounted low in the engine bay. This gives the 2019 Subaru Legacy exquisite balance and a low center of gravity for reduced body roll and incredible handling precision. Throw in Active Torque Vectoring technology -- standard on the Subaru Legacy and not found on the Toyota Camry at all -- and it's clear that the 2019 Subaru Legacy is the best-handling midsize sedan in its class.


2019 Subaru Legacy Safety Equipment

Not only is Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive an incredible performance advantage, it's a safety advantage too, especially in poor weather. On slick streets or icy roads, all-wheel drive helps you stay in control. Again, the Toyota Camry is front-wheel drive only.

But, when it comes to your safety in a crash, we're glad to say both these vehicles offer class-leading protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave both the 2019 Subaru Legacy and Toyota Camry their 2019 Top Safety Pick+ distinction -- the most exclusive safety award in our industry!


2019 Subaru Legacy Safety Options

2019 Subaru Legacy VS Toyota Camry: Safety Equipment

Unlike many other vehicles in this segment, both these cars come totally standard with advanced driver assist suites. That means both the Subaru Legacy and Toyota Camry give you standard pre-collision braking, lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control and more, protecting you from dangerous situations on today's hectic roads.

However, only the 2019 Subaru Legacy is available with automatic braking in reverse. Especially handy for busy parking lots and blind corners, the Subaru Legacy will engage the brakes automatically if an obstruction enters your path when reversing. That's a trick the 2019 Toyota Camry just can't pull off.
