Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Legacy than the Honda Insight, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Insight 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 Honda Insight, 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 Honda Insight 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 Honda Insight and the Subaru Legacy have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Insight 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 Honda Insight is slightly shorter than the Subaru Legacy, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Powertrain
The Honda Insight has much less torque than the Subaru Legacy, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Warranty
The Honda Insight comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Legacy.
