Legacy vs Toyota Camry: Which Is Better For CT Drivers?

Subaru Legacy Continues to Outshine the Competition, Including the Toyota Camry!

Add up all of the different makes and models out there today, and you'd probably begin to feel overwhelmed, confused, and even a little bit frustrated with the progress in your new car search. Sedan shopping can be hard, with many options but very few obvious clarifying factors for you to thin out the herd. Need some help? Reynolds Subaru took it upon ourselves to provide a solution for some of these complications you find yourself coming across again and again by breaking down one of our signature models, the Subaru Legacy. We've compared our Subaru model with another similar sedan you can discover, the Toyota Corolla. Judging from safety to performance and price, we hope that this comparative review aids your quest to find a special sedan for navigating Lyme, CT, throughout the year.


The MSRP of a vehicle is one of the greatest places to start because it can become crystal clear with one look at a price tag which vehicle offers you more value. Glancing at the listings on both of these models, we find the Legacy coming in at $2,400 less in total MSRP. Take the fact that the Legacy more than holds its own against the Camry, and there's clear profit to be had with this Subaru sedan in question.

Fuel Economy

Like anything, you can add up the total expenditures of your collective gas bills at the end of the year and be pretty shocked with the results that you find. Our guess is you'll be less surprised with the bill of the Legacy, which gets 27/35 mpg city/highway, better than the Camry at 25 and 34 miles per gallon, respectively. Tack up on a fuel tank that exceeds the Toyota model's maximum capacity by more than 4 gallons, and you'll be more than content with the efficiency you can operate under on a day-to-day basis.

Seasonal Driving

From slick roads on a wet, rainy day to the snow-covered paths you will undoubtedly come across in the winter, preparations for season-long driving must take place long before you begin to see changes in the conditions outside. With the Legacy, however, these preparations are already solidified and in place. They come in the form of Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, a traction deliverer that makes sure your wheels have the proper level of stability as you operate behind the wheel. This system is the support you need to prepare for the unpredictability of the weather here in Connecticut. The new Toyota Camry offers AWD, but you'll need to pay $1,400 more over the base model to equip it. The Legacy is a better deal with its standard AWD.


More front hip, head, shoulder, and legroom meet better rear hip, shoulder room, and passenger volume. Which sedan must we be talking about? You guessed it - the Subaru Legacy wins convincingly yet again. Easily the coziest part of your day, the seats in the Legacy will be the thing you look forward to as you head out the door and the first thing on your mind when you're fresh out of work.


While symmetrical all-wheel-drive very much can be applied to this category as well, the Legacy features many other safety advancements that we can feel free to move on to. One such advanced feature you will find in the Legacy happens to be Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which can lend an extra pair of eyes and kick in immediate responses in the case of imminent danger. While the Toyota Camry offers numerous safety features courtesy of the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+, it doesn't include features like Reverse Automatic Braking and DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System - both features found in the Legacy lineup.

The Subaru Legacy should now be a clear front runner in your cloudy sedan race, with the finish line right here at 268 Hamburg Road in Lyme, CT. Come visit with us for a test drive as soon as you see fit.
