2018 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2018 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 Chevrolet Cruze, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Subaru Legacy in the front seats.

Convenience
The Subaru Legacy requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Cruze, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Cruze is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Chevrolet Cruze and the Subaru Legacy have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much slimmer than the Subaru Legacy, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Cruze is slightly shorter than the Subaru Legacy, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Subaru Legacy, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Subaru Legacy.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Legacy.
