But comparisons are necessary to really prove this point and illuminate the advantages that a vehicle such as the Legacy hold, which is precisely what we have set out to provide up against a fierce adversary in the Honda Accord here at our Subaru dealer in Connecticut.


If you're aware of most cars in the marketplace, you probably know that all-wheel drive isn't normally something that you can expect to enjoy around Lyme, Norwich, New London or Middletown. But with the Subaru Legacy, available for sale here in Connecticut, you don't have to hold onto the expectations that you previously had. That is because this sedan changes what you previously thought was possible, boasting standard symmetrical all-wheel drive for traction throughout the year on the snow-covered, rain-drenched Connecticut roads. This system isn't available in the new Honda Accord, which is a serious drawback.

The 2.5-liter H4 engine in the Legacy even helps you to follow a schedule concisely, as stops to the gas station frequently to fill up will no longer be something that you routinely do. This engine supports stronger city and highway fuel economy than the Accord, making your commutes on the interstate and trips around Connecticut even that much more enjoyable. The 25 miles per gallon city and 34 miles per gallon highway estimates top that of the Accord at 23 miles per gallon city and 32 miles per gallon highway respectively.
