2017 Buick Verano vs. 2017 Subaru Legacy Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Legacy than the Buick Verano, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Verano and the Subaru Legacy in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Subaru Legacy you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Buick Verano, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Verano will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Legacy. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Verano is much higher than that for the Subaru Legacy.

Dimensions
The Buick Verano is a little narrower than the Subaru Legacy, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Buick Verano is slightly shorter than the Subaru Legacy, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick Verano and the Subaru Legacy do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Buick Verano has a smaller turning radius than the Subaru Legacy, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Buick Verano and the Subaru Legacy.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Verano and the Subaru Legacy. The Buick Verano has less cargo capacity than the Subaru Legacy, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Verano than that of the Subaru Legacy.
