In this matchup, the Honda Accord LX faces off against the Subaru Legacy Premium. While the Legacy Premium offers a very slight price advantage over the Accord LX, a closer look reveals that this initial “value” is actually quite misleading.

Thanks to its standard 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, the Accord LX boasts 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. That’s more performance than you’ll get from the Legacy Premium. Even with the power advantage, the Accord still delivers superior fuel economy across all three EPA MPG measurements**! A lower curb weight and a more sophisticated multi-link rear suspension provide the Accord with more engaging handling for a more rewarding experience behind the wheel.

Shifting our focus to interior amenities, you’ll immediately notice the standard push-button ignition included as standard on the Accord. If you enjoy taking extended weekend road trips, you’ll have more room inside the trunk of the Honda. Standard Traffic Jam Assist will reduce driving fatigue in the Accord while stuck in traffic, a feature that’s not available on the Legacy at any price. Your friends and family will certainly prefer the Accord as well thanks to greater head and legroom in the rear row of seating.
