2020 Subaru Legacy vs Honda Accord Sedan Comparison in Salt Lake City, UT

When you're shopping for a new car for life in Salt Lake City, an all-wheel drive sedan from Subaru just makes sense. It's got the all-weather capability you need for cold, wet winters, yet it's still more affordable than competitors like the 2020 Honda Accord. To prove that Subaru gives you even more value, take a look at the comparison below! We'll compare the 2020 Subaru Legacy side-by-side against the 2020 Honda Accord. We'll show you why you get more value in the Subaru when it comes to features, technology, safety and performance.

Subaru Legacy Split Rear Seat

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Honda Accord: Features

At the entry level, the 2020 Subaru Legacy comes with a 60/40 split folding rear bench seat, so you can get longer items in the trunk and still seat some passengers in the back. The base 2020 Honda Accord model features a folding rear bench, but it folds down in a single piece, so you can't pass items through to the cabin from the trunk and seat passengers in the back at the same time. The Subaru Legacy is more versatile!

The 2020 Subaru Legacy also comes standard with built-in SiriusXM® Satellite Radio support, a pair of USB ports and a 3.5mm AUX input. The 2020 Honda Accord lacks SiriusXM® support and only gives you a single USB port at the base level.


Subaru Legacy Interior

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Honda Accord: Multimedia

A pair of 7" touchscreen displays with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ support make it easy to stay connected in the new 2020 Subaru Legacy. Or, upgrade to the available 11.6" vertically oriented touchscreen for the most modern interior available in any Subaru!

In the 2020 Honda Accord, the base model comes standard with a static multimedia display featuring only a basic AM/FM radio. The only touchscreen available on the 2020 Honda Accord is just 8" large and it's only available on the most costly Honda Accord trim levels. And you can't get Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay™ on the Honda Accord until you upgrade to the touchscreen. Instead, pick the 2020 Subaru Legacy and get all these features standard.

Subaru Legacy Drives Through Puddles

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Honda Accord: Performance

At the entry level, the 2020 Subaru Legacy makes a bit less power than the 2020 Honda Accord, but the available turbocharged engine upgrade in the Legacy XT models is the most powerful powerplant you can have in either of these cars! With 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, the 2020 Subaru Legacy XT combines the refinement of a classy midsize sedan with sneaky-sporty performance.

And while every 2020 Honda Accord is a front-wheel drive vehicle, the 2020 Subaru Legacy has Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive! This technology ensures all your wheels receive drive power from the engine, so if a puddle or patch of ice causes one wheel to slip, the rest engage with the pavement for peerless all-weather performance. This feature is even more important in snowy climates like ours!


Subaru Legacy Sport

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Honda Accord: Headlights

The 2020 Honda Accord comes with LED low-beam headlights and typical halogen brights, and full-LED headlights are available only on the fully-loaded Touring trim level. By contrast, full-LED headlights with automatic high beams are standard on the 2020 Subaru Legacy.

Furthermore, even the upgraded headlights in the 2020 Honda Accord were rated merely "Acceptable" in tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. By contrast, the 2020 Subaru Legacy offers optional steering-responsive LED headlights that turn as you steer for even better visibility. The IIHS gave these headlights a best-possible score of "Good."

That's why, while the 2020 Honda Accord earned the 2020 Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, the 2020 Subaru Legacy did even better earning the 2020 Top Safety Pick+ award!


Subaru Legacy Rear End

2020 Subaru Legacy vs. 2020 Honda Accord: Driver Assist Technology

The 2020 Subaru Legacy and 2020 Honda Accord are ahead of the game, offering more standard driver assist technology than most rival cars. On both models, you'll be protected by standard forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assistance and adaptive cruise control.

But while the 2020 Honda Accord and 2020 Subaru Legacy both offer optional rear cross-traffic alert, the 2020 Subaru Legacy can protect you even further with reverse automatic braking. This feature can stop you automatically when backing up if traffic passes behind you without warning. That's a feature the 2020 Honda Accord just doesn't offer!
