Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Legacy with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru Legacy, the Ford Fusion Hybrid may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Subaru Legacy requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Fusion Hybrid, 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). The Ford Fusion Hybrid 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 Destination Charge for the Ford Fusion Hybrid is much higher than that for the Subaru Legacy.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion Hybrid is much wider than the Subaru Legacy, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fusion Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Legacy.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion Hybrid has much less torque than the Subaru Legacy, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Fusion Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Legacy, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Subaru Legacy. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The Ford Fusion Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Legacy.
