Within the competitive world of midsize sedan models in today's marketplace, there indeed are many compelling options out there available for shoppers. However, for drivers living in the greater Bellevue, Issaquah, Sammamish, and Mercer Island areas of Washington, one sedan in particular certainly proves itself as a clear standout...

When you take a close look at both the new Subaru Legacy and the competing Honda Accord sedans, it quickly becomes evident that the latest Legacy model is the true winner in this race for the superior sedan!

While the well-established Honda Accord may currently be the better-known model, Subaru's popularity is rapidly on the rise, and more and more drivers than ever before are wisely choosing the Legacy as their next ride. If you are in fact shopping around this segment of the industry and you're considering the two sedans, then you really ought to review some key differences between them that we have displayed just below.

Value & Durability


First thing's first - let's talk price points of these two enticing sedan models. We cannot deny that the 2018 Honda Accord has an attractive MSRP that starts at only $23,570. However, even that low of a price tag cannot compete with the generously-priced 2019 Subaru Legacy with an MSRP of $22,495. While pricing sure is important, it almost feels like we are splitting hairs when discussing such similar prices between models. Let's dive into the included features and equipment for these starting prices, because that is precisely where the real differences can be found!

Surely you are looking for a reliable sedan that will serve you very well for countless of miles to come. Well, an incredible 96% of all Legacy models sold in the past decade are still driving strong today. Thanks to this proven longevity, there is no surprise whatsoever that the Subaru automaker was named Kelley Blue Book's Most Trusted Brand for four consecutive years.

Honda simply cannot make the same claim for their Accord model.

Capability, Connectivity & Cabin Space


This very well could be the deal-breaker regarding your decision between the new Legacy and the Accord. The Subaru Legacy comes with the brand's widely-praised and proven Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System (AWD) as standard equipment, for no extra cost whatsoever for buyers. Whenever you come across harsh winter-weather and rugged terrain that we so often encounter in Bellevue, Issaquah, Sammamish, Mercer Island, and beyond, the surefooted new Subaru Legacy will deliver the upmost confidence and peace-of-mind behind the wheel! In stark contrast, all-wheel drive is not available at all for the new Honda Accord, meaning that the Legacy is far better-suited for the roads and weather here in Washington.

Also standard equipment for the latest 2019 Legacy sedan is the SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia System that includes full-integration with both popular Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. It doesn't cost you a penny extra to enjoy a seamless and effortless connection with your smartphone and mobile applications when you wisely choose the Subaru Legacy. On the other hand, Honda forces buyers to spend more money if they wish to have Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ when they hit the road.


Lastly, if you value a comfortable and roomy interior cabin, then you will also be drawn to the Subaru Legacy instead of the rival Accord sedan. The new Legacy boasts a whopping 104.6 cubic feet of total passenger volume space, and no other sedan in its class has more interior space. You'll unfortunately be more cramped sitting inside the less spacious Honda Accord.
