Comparison Review

Comfort
The Subaru Legacy offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Camry with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Subaru Legacy will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Subaru Legacy as you will with the Toyota Camry, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Subaru Legacy or the Toyota Camry, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Legacy carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
The Subaru Legacy is about the same width as the Toyota Camry. When looking at overall length, the Subaru Legacy takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Camry.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Subaru Legacy doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Camry.

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

Performance
The Subaru Legacy has less horsepower than the Toyota Camry, 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 Subaru Legacy and the Toyota Camry. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Subaru Legacy as you will in the Toyota Camry.

Warranty
The Subaru Legacy comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry.
