To find out, consult the 2016 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Subaru Legacy comparison provided by Full Throttle in Malvern, PA below.

Versatile Style

2016 Honda Accord

This year’s Honda Accord takes its previous look and enhances it with bold, new accents and an overall sleeker design that will turn heads throughout the Malvern area. And to make an even bigger statement, the new Accord features a set of all-new headlights and tail lights. For those looking for a sleeker and sportier style, the 2016 Accord also offers its coupe model.

It’s no secret that the 2016 Subaru Legacy is an attractive sedan, but its overall look lacks the bold style that many drivers crave. Instead, it reuses its previous design and looks more like a family sedan rather than sleek and sporty car. Plus it doesn’t feature a coupe model for added design enhancements.

2016 Honda Accord vs. Subaru Legacy Engine Performance

The 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Subaru Legacy offer their own unique performances. The Honda Accord provides a smooth and sporty performance with its standard 185-horsepower 2.4-liter I-4 engine. The sedan also comes with an available 3.6-liter V6 engine that gets 278 horsepower and your choice of three transmission systems for enhanced overall performance.

Like the Accord, the 2016 Subaru Legacy includes two engines options: a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an available 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine. Both feature unique designs that promotes fuel economy, but unfortunately, they lack power in their performance. Overall, the standard option only gets up to 175 horsepower and the available six-cylinder engine produces 256 horsepower.

Both come equipped with driver assist technologies such as Adaptive Cruise Control and a Lane Keeping Assist System. The Accord also has a standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines that gives you normal, wide, and top-down angle views of your rear surroundings.

The Subaru Legacy comes with a rearview camera as well, but it can’t provide multiple angles of your rear surroundings.
