Drivers don’t typically have to spend long comparing the 2021 Honda Accord vs. 2021 Subaru Legacy. With the Honda routinely outpacing its rivals across the board, this is always going to be an easy decision, and you can see exactly why we think so by reading on to compare:

  • Engine and Transmission
  • Comfort Features
  • Technology

Accord vs. Legacy: Engine and Transmission

You’ll find a four-cylinder engine fitted as standard in both the 2021 Honda Accord and the 2021 Subaru Legacy, but the Accord actually offers a touch more power. You’ll make:

  • Up to 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque from the Accord’s 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder.
  • Up to 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque from the Legacy’s 2.5L 4-cylinder.

The Accord also offers a wider range of transmissions. The Subaru fits Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) across all trims, whereas the Honda lets you choose between:

  • CVT with Sport Mode
  • 10-Speed Automatic Transmission (10AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW) and Paddle Shifters

Accord vs. Legacy: Comfort Features

The Honda Accord can call itself a substantially more practical sedan than the Legacy since it offers up to 16.7 cubic foot in the trunk vs. 15.1 with the Subaru. It reinforces such spacious interior dimensions by providing comfort features that go beyond what’s offered by the Legacy, including:

  • Standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
  • Available 12-Way Driver’s Seat with 4-Way Power Lumbar Support

Accord vs. Legacy: Technology

The latest vehicle generation has seen some truly innovative technology come to everyday vehicles, and the team over at Honda has been quick to take advantage. Unlike the Subaru Legacy, the Honda Accord offers:

  • Standard 8-Inch Touchscreen Infotainment System
  • Standard Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC)
  • Available Near Field Communication (NFC)
  • Available Wireless Phone Charger

Look for those features in the Legacy and you’ll find they’re either unavailable as standard or not offered in any trim level.
