Subaru Legacy vs Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

 Battle of the best midsize sedans!

   
Subaru Legacy Premium
    
Toyota Camry
   
Honda Accord
 



PLANET'S EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

If you're looking for an affordable sedan loaded with safety and convenience features, then this is a competition you're guaranteed to win.  This "midsize" segment is the most competitive segment in the American auto industry, so every manufacturer is under intense pressure to build a better car at a lower price. All three have a 3 year/36,000 mile comprehensive warranty and 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty.  All three have Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio connectivity, air conditioning, keyless entry, power windows, power mirrors, and much more.  All three boast an enviable reputation for quality. 

Legacy is the only car here with all wheel drive, and you get it for around the same price.
