2014 Subaru Impreza WRX vs. 2015 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 Subaru Impreza WRX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Subaru Impreza WRX 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 Subaru Impreza WRX, 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). The Subaru Impreza WRX is somewhat more expensive 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 Subaru Impreza WRX and the Subaru Legacy have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Subaru Impreza WRX does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Subaru Legacy.

Handling

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Subaru Legacy. The Subaru Impreza WRX has significantly less cargo room than the Subaru Legacy, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
